Irrelevant Citation: Mona Lisa

Here's another example of a meaningless reference to Mona Lisa.

Veiled? Well, maybe if that means "obscure."

 Does this quote mean anything? "If Karl Lagerfeld is the leading talk artist of fashion, Ms. Kawakubo is the Mona Lisa. She makes no effort to reveal her meanings, though at times she explains her methods."

Or is the New York Times following nationwide trends and thrifting the use of competent copy editors? Who knew?
