|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?
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
