A couple of years ago, before fashion reality TV became The Thing, plastic surgery reality television was really having a moment—remember all those extreme makeover diet/surgery shows? Anyway, one of our favorite reality TV stars from back then was Dr. Robert Rey, the Brazilian doctor-gone-Hollywood, a.k.a. Dr. 90210. His seasons-long star-turn on the E! series led to a heap of endorsements and product licenses—one of the most enduring of which is his line of shapewear. Check out Dr. Robert Rey's Shapewear fashion show—a first, if we recall correctly—which just took place in Sydney, Australia, as part of Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival Sydney 2011. On an unrelated note, it seems like it's always fashion week in Australia, doesn't it?
