For some attendees, it was fun to just come in and shoot the models like statues.
The models in return either enjoy themselves posing and making expressions, as in Yoana Baraschi's presentation, or some wish they were strutting up and down the runway instead of being stiff for two hours.
Truly, it is the setting and the clothes that determine the posing, the movement-or the lack thereof-and the models' demeanor at the presentation.
The surfer boys at Nautica maybe stiff accessorizing the windbreakers and hoodies with their hard-won six-pack abdominals but towards the other end of the spectrum, their better-attired buddies in madra sport shirts and polos were joking and having fun, emitting that care-free Preppy fun that folks have come to know and love.
In a homage to Faye Dunaway in "Bonnie and Clyde" and the devil-may-care Flapper, Ms. Baraschi's models were jaunty and jolly as they were youthful.
