that a catwalk model is not required to have a pretty face. Granted it is nice to see a symmetrical beauty up there but it is not required
to display clothes.
So one could present a story or movie in which all the models had "perfect" figures but extremely disturbing faces. I could see them being subtley skewed digitally so that women like Heidi Klum look like horrible monsters.
It could also be presented with the model's assets slightly improved in a rather odd fashion. Maybe larger breasts or an obviously larger butt. Even better would be a way for each viewer to get the models boddies accentuated in a specific personal preference rather than the preferences of the film designer.
If you wanted to tell a tale about beauty and corruption this may be a very fun motif to hang it all on. Far more effective though if it isn't mentioned? Ideally everyone in the piece would be normal in appearance except for the models. Maybe just one model among a group of others who are normal.
For a completely different vibe, how about a short squat woman with hair on her face who is suddenly one of the elite fashion models in the world. Sort of a herbie the love bug does home improvement slash earnest naive college student PCism for the fashion world.
