The eclectic French design house brought their life-sized Action Dolls to the runway. 

Have you ever dreamt about what would happen if a Bratz Doll and Cabbage Patch Kid got mixed together and sent down a high fashion runway? French design house Viktor & Rolf has made your fantasies come true today at Paris Couture Week with one of the strangest runway shows of the season.

For their fall '17 Couture show, avant-garde design duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren sent a diverse range of models down the catwalk as Action Dolls, which is a glitzy way of saying half the models walked the runway in in oversized dolls heads before the second half of the show brought out converted, wearable versions of the looks. That's not to say you can't wear oversized dolls heads on the streets, but we have a feeling they wouldn't pay your hospital fee of the bike messenger you'd run into trying to cross 5th Avenue.

Dolls weren't the only theatrical flourish the designers brought to Paris Couture Week. The garments themselves continued the theme with larger-than-life ruffles; sleek, quilted nylon; and patchwork detailing your grandma would be proud of under the oversized bomber jackets.
