For her most recent lookbook, designer Carrie Parry decided to enlist the help of regular, everyday people to show off her fall 2012 collection, in lieu of hiring a bunch of professional models. She partnered with a website called The Self-Portrait Project, which Refinery29 refers to as a "glorified photobooth." The results: adorable. Turns out, NYC grad students, receptionists, and nutrition specialists can do just as good a job striking a pose as today's strongest-cheekboned 16-years-olds.
Take a peek at two of the shots above, and head here to see the rest. And while you're in the clicking spirit, head on over to Parry's website to check out what's currently available for spring.
