It wasn't easy but I finally got Cathy to agree to model Vogue 9128, which as you'll recall, was chosen "The Ugliest Pattern Ever" from among a dozen worthy competitors. MPB readers proclaimed it "a male maternity jumper," "so sad," and "like wearing a fashion barrel."
So here is the result and I hope you enjoy it. We even ran into an honest-to-goodness Cathy fan on our shoot!
As always, to see these photos full-size, please click on any image and then, in Picasa, choose "View All" in the upper left hand corner, and "Slideshow."
You can leave your impressions below, but pleasebe kind. Remember: it was chosen ugliest for a reason.
Do you think Cathy has redeemed this look? Can anybody?
