Chinese govt's crackdown on 'scantily-clad show girls at auto shows'

Wellington, Sept 11 (ANI): The near-nude incidents at the Chengdu motor show earlier this month have triggered a crackdown on scantily-clad show girls by the Chinese government.

According to Car News China, the organisers of the Chengdu show have been issued with a reprimand from the government over the amount of flesh shown by models posing for Kia, Citroen and Toyota - the latter of which saw an "almost-naked Ms Yan Yu" posing with a Camry before "things got so mad with 'journalists' taking pictures" that the model was removed from sight, Stuff.co.nz reported.

Two models for Kia were considered indecent - one wore a pink top with cut-out sections exposing selected sections of skin; another was spotted wearing a mesh top with nothing underneath apart from some flesh-coloured tape, the report said.

The Citroen "booth professional" wore a very short top and stockings with garters, leaving very little to the imagination, it added.

It's not the first time a Chinese car show has attracted controversy over its barely-clothed models.

A similar reprimand notice was issued to the planners of the Beijing motor show in April this year, the report said. (ANI)
