Contest follow-up: We’re still wondering who she is!

Thanks to all the Cheapos who have contributed guesses in our “name that celebrity” mystery photo quiz posted last week. Gazing out our window at Broadway and Houston in New York, we wondered who was getting painted by billboard artists on the wall across the way.

Five days later, we’re still wondering…and she’s almost done!

Really, who IS she?

There was speculation a-plenty when she was only a forehead, including, notably: Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Tyra Banks, and Chelsea Clinton. But today, with her body fully painted (save a bit of forearm), we’re still shaking our heads. (The photo above was taken at 5 PM Monday.)

Is it possible that (gasp!) H&M is using an unknown model for this billboard? Could she be a no-name? Just another pretty face with an interesting nose and a spray tan?

In any case, we’ll be giving away a book to somebody. We just have to settle the matter first. Stay tuned. And keep guessing!

    The model is not a “name” celebrity — you can see her on the H & M website. The photographer is Alexi Lubomirski, but the model’s name isn’t given.

    I tried to contact the H & M press office but couldn’t get through….

    I am impressed Domi, that you tried to call H & M’s press office! Maybe we should start a contest asking cheapos what celebrity this no-name model looks the most like….Fergie anyone? Or, maybe that Deal or No Deal gal who was recently in the news?

    I thought Fergie too, Mere. Love the look though. A trip to the mall is in order!
