Can't see the link, but I find the fashion shows morbid from many points of view.  

I was wondering if Melanchton was posting tongue-in-cheek because the nyt's sudden concern for 'third world' women is almost insulting.  Of course, it is assumed that US women are 'exceptionally' fine, as it is and need not be included, but also

  2.  It promotes the authors' new book.

  3.  Gives the nyt a do-gooder image for all the sunday-only readers.
