Day is specific about her contempt for fashion photography and I want to see explore the type of photos and imagery that caused her to rebel against it. The decade saw the transition between the top models of previous years such as Christie Brinkley, Iman, Kim, Beverly,Carol and the rise of the 5, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington,Naomi Campbell & Claudia Schiffer. Day mentions Turlington and such models as what is regarded to as beauty and her inability to look like them. The idea of using models that where far from looking like the top 5 was intentional in increasing the distance between what Day felt was the real world and the fakery of fashion.
