Clash of the Mannequins

While many online retailers hire real models to show off their goods, others rely on good ol' fashion mannequins. But like all things in this world, there are attractive and not-so-attractive kinds out there. I was made aware of this fact when I was shopping Ron Herman's Winter sale. Right then I decided that if I were reborn a mannequin, I'd want to come back as Ms. Ron Herman. She is so '20s chic — thin headband, red lips and all. She's a little on the pale side, yes, but it's nothing a little bronzer can't fix.

On the relatively normal mannequin scale is Net-a-Porter's model. Yes, she's headless, but her body is bangin' and her skin color just right. Then, on the avant-garde end is the Barneys New York mannequin, or shall I say spear-equin. Not only does she not have a head, she has a sharp cone that makes me wonder how she managed to get the dress on without hurting herself. Ouch! Speaking of mannequins, take a fun trip back in time and be sure to watch the wonderfully cheesy '80s movie Mannequin with Kim Cattrall!
