Bottoms up! Kerr shows what her mama gave her in black hosiery paired with a backless top and belt by Celine -- complemented by Bride of Frankenstein evoking hair and makeup.

Kerr strikes a pinup pose in a Proenza Schouler sweater, Dolce & Gabbana bra and briefs accessorized with Miu Miu socks and boots.
I see London, I see France... Miranda gives us a more modest backshot, clad in striped Louis Vuitton shorts, a Calvin Klein Collection tube skirt (worn as a tutu) and Dolce & Gabbana bra and briefs.
The model gets all hour-glassy in a Yves Saint Laurent dress (creatively worn inside out as a bustier), Dolce & Gabbana briefs and Dior belt.
