Prada Marfa: "If You Build It, They Will Come"

October 2005 may seem like light years ago but who can forget the grand opening of the mysterious Prada Marfa.
The creators claimed it to be an "art installation."  The "store" has 20 left shoes and 6 handbags on display, no doors or entries, and is located miles upon miles away from any form of civilization.

Some call it a cruel mirage, others call it dumb...

Many believe it is a trap set by aliens. The most logical of all explanations if you ask me. It makes total sense...
  Prada Marfa draws fashion lovers out to the middle of a nowhere, Texas- prime abduction location... NO WITNESSES!
There has even been evidence of extraterrestrial activity. Unexplained floating orbs in the night sky in Marfa,Texas have been spotted so frequently they dubbed the phenomenon "Marfa Lights."
 Who, you may be thinking, is the alien mastermind behind this trap?
That's right Miuccia Prada, herself! 
Miuccia's uncanny resemblance to a Klingon (she obviously shaved down those forehead bumps and tamed the eyebrows) wasn't the only thing that tipped me off to her intergalactic origin. 

How else can you explain her strange obsession with star prints in the Miu Miu Spring 2011 Collection:
Paying homage to the motherland, perhaps?
These prints look familiar, right? That's because this exact star print was first debuted during Miu Miu's Spring 2006 Collection- just one day before she opened her alien abduction facility, Prada Marfa.
Coincidence? I think not.

Why would Miuccia abduct these innocent fashion-loving stopper-bys?
Abduction seems to be the only way to brainwash women into wearing these delightfully tacky star prints.

MIUCCIA MUST BE STOPPED!

CAUTION: If you see a lone Prada "store" hanging out by the side of a desolate highway and orbs of light floating above it do not stop, DRIVE FASTER!
