    Look, Ma, no hands! While this might be an impressive feat if we were riding a unicycle or winning a pie-eating contest, the phrase gets new meaning with the Céline fall '14 collection. Sleeves dominated the Paris Fashion Week runway — and we mean literally.

Models on the runway look cool while clutching handbags and cuffing their wrists with statement jewelry, but does this translate in real life? Won't too-long sleeves lead to clumsy hands or — worse — clothes that attract dirt like a Swiffer Duster?
