An OnlyFans model and social media influencer who was told ‘curvy women’ cannot model, has gone viral recreating designer outfits made entirely of body paint- from Louis Vuitton swimwear to Versace lingerie.
Dara, 37, from Brooklyn, New York, began doing the body painting six years ago and has left people stunned with her realistic ‘fashion’ looks which are all created on her completely naked body, posting them on her Instagram account @moneybirdette and racking up more than 262,000 followers in the process.
The looks are painted onto her nude body by artist Fernello and have included a Louis Vuitton-inspired bathing suit with matching suspenders and a red and black Versace inspired bodysuit.
She has also modelled a purple and black swimsuit complete with the Versace logo, snake-esque skin coupled with a real-life snake and a full Day of the Dead look inspired by the Mexican holiday.

The 37-year-old dreamed of becoming a model for high fashion designers growing up but claims that she was told ‘curvy women’ cannot model.
Speaking to NeedToKnow.online, Dara explained: ‘I wanted to show people you can do whatever you want and not listen to those telling you your body is ‘too much’ of anything.
‘I would cover my walls in high fashion advertisements from Vogue magazine and others. I still love editorial and print, so I wanted to incorporate my paintings into photoshoots.’
Dara added: ‘I usually come up with an idea and lately, I’ve been inspired by current and vintage high fashion brands, as well as iconic looks.

Dara, seen not wearing body paint, said that she did not always have confidence as her family is very ‘old school’ and ‘strict’ and she was always covered up
She added that she knew from a young age that her body was different so she was teased and spent time covering up her curves
She said: ‘I didn’t always have confidence, as my family is very old school and strict, where I was always covered up.
‘I knew at a young age my body was different, so I was teased a lot and spent time covering up my curves. Now, modelling with paint makes me feel sexy, confident and beautiful.’
