Using facelessness to focus attention on everything but the model
Implications - When a campaign features a celebrity or supermodel, the viewer naturally focuses his or her attention on that person and less on the clothes that are being marketed. The same thing occurs when fashion show attendees focus on the runway models' faces and not on what they're wearing. As such, the use of "faceless" models helps to draw attention directly to the apparel; with the model's face obscured, the brand can showcase the clothing without the consumer forming judgments based on who the model is or what she looks like.
