Painted On Jeans: Woman Walks Through Streets In Trousers Painted On By French Makeup Artist Marie Przybylski

French makeup artist Marie Przybylski spent two hours painting a pair of jeans onto the legs of her model friend before she took to the streets to show off her new, er, threads. Yes this actually happened. And yes, you have to see it to believe it!

Wearing nothing but a thong and a hell of a lot of body paint the blonde model (confusingly, also named Marie) gave a new meaning to skin-tight denims as she strolled about the town of Lille, France.

At first glance Marie really does look like she's wearing a pair of very tight blue jeans, but upon closer inspection you really start to question your eyesight.

The slightly bizarre idea was dreamt up by students Sarah Baboro and David Lesage, who study PR at a school in Belgium, after being given an assignment as part of their final exams to create a "buzz video" that would get people talking. We think it's fair to say they've certainly done that. Give those girls an A!

The pair recruited makeup artist Marie Przybylski, who spent two hours creating the faded blue jeans on Marie's legs using body paint. Surprisingly, the not-really-there jeans attracted little more than a few lingering glances from the unsuspecting public.

Watch the vide here:

"I said yes because Sarah is a good friend of mine and body-painting is what I really enjoy as a makeup artist so I didn't even think twice about saying yes," Marie said.

"It sounded like fun and I really really really enjoyed doing it.
