Fashion photographer Ryan Yoon's latest shoot features some of the industry's hottest models in some of the world's most unusual outfits.

In the premiere edition of New York-based print magazine Virgine, Ryan Yoon teams up with supermodels Cintia Dicker, Valeria Dmitrienko, Annabelle Tsaboukas, Dani, Isabelle Sonnenschein, Valerie Avdeyeva and Anett Griffe and dresses them in a collection of strange yet intriguing outfits, including dresses made entirely of Coke cans, iPads, M&Ms and Tide boxes.

The Ryan Yoon Virgine shoot stands out for its original concept and ridiculous, surrealist imagery. While most of the photos give off a cool, avant-garde aesthetic, some are unusual to the point of being jarring. The model surrounded by a bunch of different (and small) dogs is both gorgeous and frightening. Nevertheless, the concept is sure to draw interest to Virginie magazine when it hits newsstands in June 2011. Stats for Soda Can Gowns Trending: Older & Buzzing
