As captured by the New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman and many others on social media, the 25-year-old model appeared on the runway in nothing but a pair of underwear and heels, covering her breasts while a team of three men sprayed her.
They strategically sprayed a thick white latex around her torso, creating an opaque layer as the model stood still and adjusted her arms.
