newspaper The Sunday People recently tendered
a challenge to a team of fashion students at the
American International University in London to
design an outfit for former Lara Croft model Nell
McAndew, using only newsprint for material.
Nell McAndrew has had some odd assignments in
her time, but modelling wearing Britain's favourite
Sunday newspaper has to be the strangest! The
beautiful 34D model - who shot to fame as the
real-life version of curvy cyberbabe Lara Croft,
star of computer game Tomb Raider - says: "This
is one of the best modelling jobs I've ever had.
It's funny, quirky AND sexy!" The fantastic designs
were all made by fashion students. It took them
a total of 20 days - and 75 copies of the Sunday
People - to make outfits as part of their degree
studies. And the results were amazing.
a guest presenter on TV's The Big Breakfast, says:
"I never thought anything could be so sexy when
it was made out of paper...but then again, it
is the Sunday People - my favourite. "I used to
model at this college when I was a complete unknown,
so it was important for me to come back and try
these clothes on for the students. They have done
a brilliant job, and I hope they do well. "Would
I wear any of these newspaper outfits? Well, maybe,
on a wild night out!"
