Ski ‘Suit’ Supports Cancer Research

Fitness model and Boise resident Kristen Brooke models a painted-on Yves Saint Laurent-style Mondrian print “ski suit” at Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research’s Boobapalooza fundraiser Friday night at the Cornerstone Bar and Grill in Ketchum. “It was fun,” Brooke said. “More nerve-racking getting ready than it was on stage.” The packed event featured nine body-painted models—both male and female—who represented sponsor teams by strutting the catwalk for ticket-holding attendees. According to body painters Jaime Graden and Mark Greenawalt, the artwork took about two to three hours per model. Greenawalt said the Mondrian looks simple, but the lines must be painted as an illusion so they appear straight on a moving body. Brooke, who represented Sun Valley Mustard and Alpinfoto, won the competition based on scores from local judges and crowd support.
