Following on from the last couple of shoots where we discovered just what sculptable belly Chiara had, we decided to use this shoot to squeeze and emphasise Chiara’s tiny waist as much as we could.
So we used a mixture of tricks, including girdles, corset top, baby oil (to make her shiny and show her muscle-tone) and a leather belt, tied very tightly at the waist – Betty Brosmer style. Obviously, you can’t do this with every model. They tend to moan or give up. But Chiara just smiled sweetly and made it all look so easy.
