There's this one entrance into the Yamakataya department store, closest to the perfume and make-up department, that consistently has the ugliest fashion ads in the store. The models wear garish orange and red rouge, eye liner, lipstick, etc., and aren't particularly attractive to start with. But, they're always non-Japanese, so I guess the idea is to appeal to the sense of being "alien". I've never recognized the models before, but this time the poster case has Miley Cyrus. I don't know if this is a step up, or down.
