Former BUST cover girl and forever BUST favorite Miranda July is at it again! We love her use of Craigslist and online interactions and transactions, always managing to make them feel meaningful and insightful. In her newest Craigslist advertisement, July searches for portrait subjects living in the Los Angeles area. The photo series will explore “why women dress the way they do” and will feature women of various races, ages, and tastes. 

 

The disclaimer “No Models!” and the curious specification “you must be a dress size 8 (Ideally you would also be 5 feet 8 inches tall, a C or D  cup bra, size 6 pants, size 9 shoes!)” make us raise our eyebrows with inquisitive delight. What's the brilliant artist up to this time? Check out the ad here, and if you're a size 8 lady living in LA, give it a try!

 

 

What do you think of the project? What artistic insights do you suspect are brewing beneath the surface of this Craigslist ad? Let us know in the comments!

 

Thanks to Craigslist and Facebook
