A PICTURE paints a thousand words – but this work of art left us speechless.
Former Baywatch star Donna D’Errico covered herself in nothing but paint for charity the Painted Princess Project – and looked simply red hot at the age of 51. But how would other women brush up in just a coat of emulsion?
We asked former Page 3 girls Rhian Sugden, 33, Holly Peers, 32, and Danielle Sellers, 24, to make a splash in patriotic red, white and blue – and the result is a stroke of genius.
They give their verdict on Donna and what it is like to be a painted lady . . .
"DONNA looks amazing. It’s like her age clock stopped when she was 21.
"She needs to share her beauty secrets.
"It feels odd being painted and is strangely flattering.
"It covers you up like clothing yet you still feel free and don’t have uncomfortable bra straps irritating you.
"It took a while getting the paint on – so if you try this at home you will need an assistant.
"I’ll have to give my body a tough scrub to get it all off though."
"I’M in shock, Donna looks younger than when she was in Baywatch.
"I’d always be naked if I aged as well as her.
"I love that she feels confident enough to show off her body for a great cause, and looking that good, I don’t blame her either.
"I quite liked being painted at first, but when it hadn’t dried 20 minutes later, it made sitting down or sending a text a bit tricky.
"It feels sticky and crusty, but hopefully it will leave my skin soft afterwards, like a body mask."
"DONNA looks younger than me in this picture yet she’s more than 25 years older.
"I’ve never posed in just a lick of paint before, but seeing Donna do it in her fifties has given me the confidence to follow suit.
"I have to say it feels very odd, I can’t imagine Donna standing still for as long as it took me to be painted.
"I’m surprised with how good it looks, although I think I’ll stick to just painting my walls next time.
"Hopefully it comes off as easily as it went on, otherwise I’ll end up looking like a smurf."
