Fashion at the motor show

So, who won the fashions on the floor at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show.

One of the early favourites was the Toyota stand, with the attendants dressed in beautifully tailored black Ginger and Smart frocks. It’s not the first time Toyota has used them, but this time thankfully they weren’t ruined by the addition of a neckscarf in the Japanese carmaker’s logo red.

Isuzu followed form with form-fitting colour-block minis that might have seemed odd with their tough-looking utes – aimed at the tradie and mining sectors – but didn’t stop them nimbly climbing in, out and over the vehicles.

And for those who like things a little left-field, the stunning costumes of the Cirque de Soleil performance on the Infiniti stand were a drawcard. We were particularly taken with the grasshopper outfits.

Boxing star Lauryn Eagle was a standout even when standing beside the Hyundai Veloster SR, working a black leather shift and hot red jacket.

The shine and draping of Jaguar’s one-shouldered numbers worked beautifully with the stunning new F-Type convertible, and came in a close second.

But in the end the gong goes to Lamborghini, with simple evening dresses featuring acres of floating black chiffon – perfect for spilling over the doorsill of an Italian supercar.

  • @Jack of Moil. Yes, they do work very hard, and are generally very informative about the cars. And while their fashions are gorgeous, I'm sure some of those high heeled shoes get uncomfortable by the end of the day -- we salute them.

  • Lack of thought? Try being female and working in the industry (NOT as a promo model).

  • Its just some pretty girls dressed nicely to accompany cars. I dont see whats wrong. People should stop trying so hard to be politically correct. It connotes a lack of thought and dare I say it stupidity.

  • can you upload some more pictures of the gilrs please? Well done for thinking of these gilrs that work hard all day long on the stands. My wife and I though they were all very friendly and lovely to talk to.
