Pretty Conservative: Motor Expo without skin-baring pretties (PHOTO ESSAY)

One of the highlights of the Motor Expo, besides the shiny cars, are the sexy models who straddle them. The prettiest “pretties” draw the press and public to check out the luxury rides.

This year, however, the organizer of the Motor Expo gave the models the directive that they must wear pants or skirts that fall below their knees since the entertainment at the event is toned down as Thailand is still in the mourning period for the passing of the king.

Without sexy pretties, the public can forget about the sexy car wash or erotic dance performances this year.

The pretties this year look like they are more likely to help you sort out your taxes or find the right book at the library.

Yesterday, Coconuts hit the expo to see what the models were sporting instead of the usual short, bodycon dresses.

Surprisingly, these outfits receive great feedback from Thai netizens, who say the models look much more elegant and beautiful while covered up.
