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.

Joe Fresh may specialize in the under-$100 fast fashion category, but that doesn't mean the brand's Fifth Avenue location can't host a high-brow art exhibit. More specifically, a retrospective of the work of master mannequin designer Ralph Pucci is currently on display in the store's windows, featuring creations inspired by everyone from Christy Turlington doing yoga to Marilyn Monroe to ancient Grecco Roman athletes.

The 18 mannequins will be on view through October 31st, with select ones wearing clothes from the Joe Fresh spring 2013 "Fresh Off the Runway Collection." Click through the gallery above for 12 of them, and try to guess which was inspired by Anna Sui, and which was designed by '60s supermodel Veruschka (before reading it in the captions below).
