The Beijing government reprimanded the city’s auto show for allowing “scantily clad” models to pose beside cars, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
The Capital Ethics Development Office said the clothing of some models at the 2012 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition had a “negative social impact,” Xinhua said. The statement may have referred to photographs circulated on the Internet of Gan Lulu, a celebrity who wore a “deep V-cut top,” and Li Yingzhi, a model who posed in a “skimpy diamond-studded dress.”

Now how much do these women actually know about cars?
