Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

This Saturday, Express will be hosting their holiday 2011 fashion show in Times Square, from 9pm to 9:20pm. But before that, they'll attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most models to walk down the runway. The current record of 521 people was set by Galeries Lafayette in Paris back in 2010, so from 9am to 6pm, Express will try to top that during their nine hour stunt.

The event is open to the public, so you can kill two birds with one stone by participating: Begin your modeling career and break a World Record. You'll also receive a T-shirt for your troubles that says "I was a model for a minute," a chance to win a $250 Express gift card, and—maybe the most priceless prize—a photo that can be directly uploaded to your social media accounts as soon as you get off the runway.
