It's men's fashion week over in London right now, so there are lots of runway images hitting the wire, but the ones from designer Xander Zhou's show on Monday really have people talking. That's because he had many of his male models walk the catwalk with fake pregnant bellies. This is what they looked like:

Some wore tight T-shirts lifted up so the prosthetic stomach was in full view, and others clutched their covered gut region with nurturing arms, which, as Fashionista pointed out, helped distinguish their fake preggo stomachs from, like, beer bellies. At least one model wore a shirt that said, "New World Baby."

As far as the meaning behind the prosthetics, the brand had this to say post-show on Instagram: "At Supernatural, Extraterrestrial & Co., we're prepared to welcome a future of male pregnancy."

Beyond the baby bumps, there was more eye-catching stuff going on, like, WTF is this?

Also, this interesting hair choice and sunglasses-slash-headgear hybrid happened.

But then, these styles also walked down the runway, so I'm really not sure how to feel about the whole thing.
