Benetton included something really groundbreaking in their new campaign — actual clothes! While the retailer's ads are always thought provoking — remember the one with Barack Obama smooching Hu Jintao? — they rarely feature anything that's actually for sale

To model said clothes, Benetton tapped nine creative types, like Givenchy muse and transgender advocate Lea T., models Alek Wek and Charlotte Free, and British boxing champ Dudley O'Shaughnessy (you might recognize him from Rihanna's "We Found Love" video).

Oh, hello there. 

Each model also filmed a short segment for brand, and we learned some fun facts about Benetton's new faces. Like, did you know Alek Wek refers to herself in the third person? 

And, were you aware that Charlotte Free has synesthesia? We wonder what goes through her mind when she sees the color pink.
