We Live In A World In Which You Can Crowdfund $30,000 For A Mannequin

Welcome to 2015, in which you too can donate your hard-earned cash to help a mannequin travel across the ocean to be reunited with his (plastic) lover. What a world. Meet Léo, a mannequin for French underwear brand Le Slip Français, who fell in love with an American mannequin during Paris Fashion Week, only for her to be whisked back…

Tired Of People Asking When You’re Going To Get Married And Have Kids? Get A Mannequin Family!

In a move I can only call brilliant, Starz Entertainment Group art director Suzanne Heintz shunned the traditional marriage and family life in favor of something far more unconventional. For the last 14 years, Heintz has been living with her strong but silent husband Chauncey and her never-rebellious teenage daughter Mary Margaret as part of…

Are These Baby Gap Mannequins Too Sassy For Their Own Good?

This Baby Gap store window display in NYC caught our eye and we just had to snap a pic for your review.

This Model Is A Piece Of Furniture

In the latest issue of POP magazine, model Devon Aoki stars in an homage to designer Allen Jones. Jones is perhaps best known for having designed furniture that, in some cases, resembles people — for example, a table top resting on a base composed of a mannequin on all fours. Provocative? Yes.

Sexy Mannequins A Big, Intolerable Problem In Iran

It’s hard for us to look at a mannequin’s uncovered, plastic head and keep our pants on. They’re just that hot. The synthetic and/or sculpted hair, the fake, vacant eyes, and the total lack of resemblance to a real live woman just gets the blood flowing in our nether regions. Aww, yeah.

Mannequins Of All (Boob) Sizes

Last night, I was walking home and noticed these mannequins in a store window. At first, I was outraged. What man thought it would be awesome to buy a mannequin with ginormous breasts? And then something else occurred to me: Now large-chested woman know they can fit into the store’s clothes! Well, as long a…
