As you may have already read ... some XOXO models have been camping out the last few weeks in an empty storefront on Fifth Avenue at 38th Street... and the models seem to be causing a sensation....
I came across the scene earlier in the week...a scene that was both hilarious and horrorfying...First, you put two models in a window who prance about in bra and panties and seductively brush each other's hair...then you hire a security guard to yell "keep moving -- you can't stand here on the sidewalk" over and over. Like we're really going to move.
And all this is on the other side of the street from the decking-the-halls holiday windows at Lord & Taylor. So there are a lot of tourists who are shocked -- shocked! -- at all this. One mom said to her twentysomething daughter, "You'd never see this back in [Elk Snout, Pigsknuckle -- didn't catch the name of the town]. And then you have a bunch of horndogs with cameras. (Uh, yeah, well, I was technically working...)
The show ends Sunday...the model hours are 12:30-2:30 p.m. and 4:30-8:30 p.m.
Anyway, it all seems pretty tame after the shows at The Standard.
And in response to the comments, YES, there is video...via the XOXO site...
