michelle perez is best known for his sexy sensual launcher adverts. what is sexy is a really fine line you know between going overboard and really. you know within the parameters of good taste but i have my own view of women and sort of trying all my life to truly put forth that new which is you know to know abuse women to really respect the. across the board respect has never been the main focus. supermodels of the nine hundred ninety s. did command a certain level of respect their unmistakable faces and leading figures became a seal of approval for whatever product they touched most of the one hundred sixty five shows in advertising posters in the exhibition. in this field women
