We knew he'd have to wear something, of course. After all, nudity would have been inappropriate, and probably illegal. But would he opt for everyday anonymity, or eccentric apparel?

Apologies for the slight crappiness of my pics, but I think the revelatory postmodern conceptuality of having the "work of art" take pictures of YOU while you take pictures of HIM shines through the fuzziness and lens flare. Um, maybe.
As for the OTHER sartorial revelation of the day, it does rather pale in comparison, but I am nonetheless delighted to note that both sets of footwear are clearly displayed, thus rendering my future icon-making activities (and yes, there WILL be future icon-making activities) just that little bit easier. Keep up this attention to detail, guys, and we should all get along just fabulously...
