Welcome to Colombia Fashion Week where butt implants, blow and plastic surgery rein supreme.

mpossibly pert: Well, it is fake, after all. It is commonplace for women to have butt fillers in Medellin, the Moda Para El Mundo showcasing some impressive surgery .

Taking their world-wide curiosity to the next level Vice Media have now set out their sights on what counts for Columbia Fashion Week. As the video below shows, what you thought worked in Paris, New York or Milan runs by its own rules here in Medellin, Colombia.

Taking us through with the city’s less haughty (yes I can’t stand it either)and every day man’s fashion show circuit, Moda Para El Mundo, as opposed to the nearby star fxcked Colombia Moda fashion week, model and presenter Charlet Duboc exposes us to some very interesting insights as to what makes fashion tick in this part of the world. And how…

dailymail.co.uk: A trade show attached to Colombia Moda is, in the words of Ms Duboc, ‘more high street than high fashion,’ bursting with bootylicious bottoms, curvaceous figures, impossibly bouncy breasts, bronzen skin and white teeth. 

Plastic surgery is clearly the norm, if not openly spoken about. One underwear model patently lies, claiming her figure is 100 per cent natural.

Over at the main fashion week’s competitor, Moda Para El Mundo, the focus is even less on fashion and more on bling and booties.

An incredulous Ms Duboc clearly has a hard time focusing, surrounded by glutes of epic proportions.

‘People’s arses are such a massive distraction from anything else,’ she says. ‘It’s kind of impossible to talk about anything else. It’s just ridiculous.’

Shake that ass: Colombian fashion week shows seem to be rather more about the bodies wearing the clothes than the designs themselves.

But if you think tall skinny girls with high cheekbones are the norm in the fashion world, Ms Duboc has a surprise for you as she takes a survey of some of the ‘conspicuous’ beauties otherwise known as ‘narco beauties’ (hmm, what’s in a name anyway?) who shake a curvaceous booty from here to eternity. Narco beauty as a sign of respect to the couturier of the drug cartel

Reflects  one beautician:

‘They always want an exuberant woman with many attributes who is very revealing. The culture applied itself to Medellin. All girls have to have perfect hourglass figures or even better.’

But if you think you are born with beauty in this part of the world-that’s just wishful thinking:

‘It is often implied that to be beautiful there is a need to have surgery. Not just the breasts, but also the face, everything.’

She says that at her school, ‘all’ of her friends had bottom or breast boosts and that ‘by the age of 17, most girls have surgery.’

 

But not every attempt at manufactured beauty necessarily works out:

Gluteoplasty surgeon, Dr Juan Mejia, told Ms Duboc that he has seen horrific cases of

    Firstly, you are a fckg idiot! Learn how to spell ColOmbia.. yes, with an O!

    Extremely amusing, enraging and sometimes
    very sad this is a Vice documentary about Colombiamoda.  The narrator/host-whatever-she-is
    really needs to get her head out of her own arse and quit talking to people in
    such a condescending, patronising way. 
    When she tries on ‘Colombian model’ clothes she looks as silly as the
    girls she interviews.  She arrives
    at many interesting conclusions, most of which are not difficult to come by,
    but she is unable to explore these conclusions deeply or meaningfully with
    critical insight.  This ‘English
    rose’ has a lot to learn from Colombianas and she should have approached the
    opportunity presented to her in a more humble way.

     

    Dear VBS, a shame to waste precious
    resources on a journalist who fails to understand the real issues behind the
    obvious and the underlying subtleties of our culture, huge opportunity missed
    here.  Charlet is probably the
    worst connected and researched journalist I have ever seen on VBS.  She interviewes random people, which is
    great, but cannot balance them out with views of respected leaders of opinion
    like Ms Alicia Mejia or other influential personalities of Colombian life.  Her approach to the interviews is
    incredibly disrespectful; if she had suspected any of her interviewees of
    understanding English she would not have treated them as she did.  I have seen amazing VBS documentaries
    on Colombia, and I just saw your documentary about prostitutes in India, and
    what I perceived was utter compassion, great investigation, deep meditation and
    a more holistic approach coming from the journalist.  What you get from this documentary is that this girl made a
    total ass of herself.  What a
    humbling experience it should have been for Charlet; an ordinary, insecure waif
    of a girl who choses to look ugly because those are the feelings she decides to
    project.  This  interesting, harrowing tale could have
    been told by a more mature journalist with what we Colombians like to call real
    ‘weight on her ass’.

    This article is just ridiculous, where have you been living stupid English girl??? in a cave?? Medellíon is not about narcobeauty anymore. Read about politics a little bit before talking about something you just saw on people magazine.  Another thing, not because you dont have a butt, other girls can’t have it naturally, yes there are boob implants, I forgot women don’t have implans in London or USA, but butts here are most of them natural, touch one and you’ll see stupid!!!
