Karl Lagerfeld's love of technology runs deep. For his latest fashion show at the Grand Palais in Paris, Chanel's Creative Director celebrated the surreal beauty of information infrastructure by anointing his fashion runway with data center aesthetics. Lagerfeld even went so far as have some of his models don robot helmets like high-fashion Cybermen. But what was going through those models minds as they were crammed inside those robodomes?

Well, that's for them to know and you to make up, because it's time to play Caption Contest!
