A fine piece of Orthodoxy!  

BTW, I am also reminded of Christian Bale in American Psycho.

So, is there a 30 year lag time for fashions to reach Poland from the U.S., or you are a lone admirer of U.S. fashions from the 1980s?

Michal and Cyrillic would have to gain about 225 pounds of weight to pull the look off.

I have seen plenty of girls who look like the one in glasses in the artsy parts of town.  The leftmost one, yeah, maybe in the 80's.  The one on the right, I cannot speak for the rest of the country, but here in Nebraska you might see here on the cover of a magazine, but not in person.  She'd be a location-adjusted 11.  And that is taking into account that a 10 is impossible.

You can pop out the lenses and flip them upside down.  I, OTOH, have implantable contact lenses.  I would have to rip my eyeballs out to participate.

I don't know about upside down, but as a contact lens wearer, beware putting them inside out!
