Elle Muliarchyk er en modell som også gjør sine egne fotostunt på en ganske så særegen måte. Ved å utgi seg for å være en velstående kvinne på shoppingtur bruker hun prøverommene som "studio". Slike stunt har hun utført i rundt 200 butikker rundt omkring i verden.
Selv sier hun dette om prosjektet
I came to NYC to become a supermodel :) I enjoyed every second of it until I realized that even though modeling opens the doors for me to a gigantic world it didn't allow me to express my own creativity and sense for beauty. It was so frustrating that I had to be a perfect mannequin, never complain about the choice of clothes or make-up but never suggest or advice anything of my own, since it would be "unprofessional".
But I found my own revenge on this situation, and a way to let out the frustration, a painfully obsessive hobby. I started sneaking into the most exclusive posh designers' boutiques all over the world and taking pictures of myself wearing the most expensive dresses. I transform the dressing room into a studio or a movie set with the equipment and props that I carry in my bag. It is a scary project that keeps my heart racing to the edge of a hear-attack, because I often get discovered, kicked out or arrested. Even though I really try NOT to get caught!
It's understandable of a sales person to be shocked when discovering me lying on the floor in a $10.000 dress next to a 6-feet tall stuffed Panda bear or a giant King Kong hand, while the walls of the dressing room are covered with back drops and posters, lights sticking out from the corners and a camera on a tripod pointing at me!
Doing this I become my own photographer, model, art director, make up artist and hair stylist. I can be whoever I desire at that moment - a movie star, a Vamp, a Seductress, and own those outrageously unaffordable clothes for a few moments, never having to pay for it!
