Models had to do pose inside a gigantic salad bowl.
Lisa D’Amato on Bench Body underwear:
I feel like I’m wearing a bikini. 
Allison Harvard: The lingerie that I’m wearing today looks
more like a swimsuit to me than actual underwear so
I think it’s very, very adorable.
Guest stylist Georgina Wilson talks to model Shannon Stewart who
refused to do the underwear pictorial.
Georgina: Why don’t you wear underwear?
Shannon explains:
I don’t do underwear and I don’t do cigarettes.
[I’m married and I think that lingerie and underwear
should just be for my husband and I don’t need
the world to see it.]
Georgina’s response to Shannon:
No offense but it’s easier to change
the model than the prototype.
