Summer's Hottest Look: No Clothes, No Hair, NO FLESH

With the official bbq-ing, binge-drinking, memorializing kick-off to summer behind us, it's time we start putting into play the hot weather fashion we've seen gallivanting around the music festivals into our everyday looks. With cut-off jean shorts and vintage tees being the perennial trend, why not beat the summer heat with the effortless chic of having no flesh at all.

Think of it: No fuss over high knots or low buns, no sweat glands to make the makeup run on your non-existent face, you'll fit into every bikini you dare to try on and no need to reapply, or apply any sunscreen at all! You'll want to bleach those ivory whites as you soak up the rays from poolside to graveside.

But in all seriousness, this set of x-ray model shots presents a unique idea for fashion editorials that could pontentially have a gorgeous, other-worldly result. Rumored to be taken in a TSA airport scanner, these images debuted last fall as a pin-up calendar, but I see it as a new dimension for modeling couture accessories and shoes. (The literally faceless model has yet to be named.)

The less-than-desirable shoes pop beautifully in these images, so just think how fantastic some Sarah Burton for McQueen pieces would look with loads of architectural jewelry pieces seemingly floating above the ethereal form. A high-fashion model would have an even longer and lankier skeleton than the model here, but his or her weight would be irrelevant. A plus-sized model would be even better as the skeleton would be the same, but shoes and accessories would hover even higher. Instead of the model's weight, candidates will be weeded out according to if they have any implants, pins, metal plates or pacemakers.
