The trend for extreme super skinny jeans has made men and women in painfully tight trousers a common sight.

The experiment shows just how used to the look people must be as only 12 passersby seem to notice the model's unusual 'outfit'.

Body paint artist Sarah Attwell spent two hours painting the fake jeans on Kelly Klein for the MailOnline experiment.

Ms Attwell has been professionally painting people since 2005 and thoroughly recreated every shade and crease that would be seen in real denim jeans.

The model was then sent to take a stroll down Kensington High Street in London in her skin tight 'jeans'.
So, did people really not notice her 'outfit', or were they just too polite to stare?
