Marie P. Sent Her Model with Body-Painted Jeans to Promote Her Talents

A bold model strutted down the streets in France wearing nothing but a shirt and a thong -- oh, and her painted denim, if that counts. The model's jean-looking bottoms were made with body paint by French makeup artist Marie P.

Marie P. spent hours painting the model and sent her out on the streets to see if anyone would notice if what she was wearing wasn't actually denim jeans. Marie thought up the initiative as a way to promote her work. However, the fake pair of jeans were so realistic that it fooled many passer-byers. Her work was so good, barely anyone noticed.

The painting process and the street stroll were filmed for further promotion, and it has gone viral. Only at the end of the model's expedition does one guy notice the deceiving denim. Stats for Deceptively Painted Denim Trending: Older & Warm
