Models Go All Digital: Computer technology has reached the point fashion models are no longer needed to sell fashions. SmartMoney is reporting "Swedish fashion retailer H&M; and French flash-sale site Vente-privee… both use computer-generated models in their advertising."

Advertisers are now creating a new, fictitious and unachievable level of beauty. The businesses claim they'll save money not having to dress models in varying outfits.
