We've seen a number of shoots that turn models into mannequins, and 'Sweet Sunshine' by Grace Gunawan takes a colorful Barbie spin on this theme. Each model in 'Sweet Sunshine' looks so flawless, they could double as a doll. The vacant expression in the first image above is a prime example.

Implications - In the fashion industry, models are increasingly uniform in appearance. As a result, in the public eye, the distinction between these models and mannequins or dolls is not a significant one. Many artists are inspired by the cultural significance behind the doll-like perfection of fashion models and use this as inspiration to create art with an impactful message.
