MERCEDES-BENZ STYLO EMERGING DESIGNER 2010 ALEXIS SAW
The model's shoe came off! This was the highlight of the evening!
With great presence of mind, she coolly removed her other shoe and paraded in her bare feet. Kudos to her!
Holding her 2 shoes, she continued to model as if nothing had happened! Brilliant
See what I mean? This was the correct thing to do though it would have been more sensational if she had continued modelling with one shoe on!
I was waiting for her bo0b to pop out so I could photograph her nipple but sadly it didn't! I was so annoyed
In the midst of the show, Kai Schlickum the vice president of sales and marketing of Mercedes-Benz sneaked a look elsewhere but I do not know why or who he was looking at but it was not me sad to say. Next to him was Elaine the communications manager of Mercedes-Benz.
Is her boob peeping out?
MERCEDES-BENZ STYLO BEST EMERGING DESIGNER 2011 LORENZO PEH
His shoes were made of clogs (cha kiak) which are usually black or red and worn by aunts and grannies in olden days. Two to three clogs were nailed together and held by back strings! It was a miracle the models could walk in them but then a snail could walk faster as the girls took their time, one painful step by another!
