Gold Undies, wtf?

"A young girl and her mother admire underwear made of 18k gold in Jinan, E. Shandong Province on April 27. The stunning showpiece is priced at 155,000 yuan (US$19,300)." This image is strange for numerous reasons, first off... This is obviously influenced by the Princess Leia "slave" costume. Secondly... are communist countries really supposed to have gold underwear, it seems to go against the general ethos of communism. Thirdly, some party fat cat will probably buy this stupid thing for his girlfriend that he keeps on the side. And lastly, why is that mother showing her daughter this piece of crap?
