Anyone in NYC over the last week knows how cold it’s been. However, one woman may have felt it a bit more than the rest of us. Dressed from head to toe in what looked like a holiday suit, model Lili Jasmijn was actually dressed in nearly nothing but body paint! (Pasties and a thong were necessary.)
Wearing a “Christmas sweater” and “leggings” made using body paint by artist Jen Seidel, Lili took to the streets of New York to see how people would react. She even made a stop at the famous holiday-themed restaurant Rolf’s. Note: it was snowing!
Some onlookers barely took notice, many were amazed by how realistic it looked, and others didn’t understand what they were seeing. One guy even offered to swap sweaters! (He clearly didn’t realize that would be impossible.) Throughout it all, Lili was all smiles. You go girl!
