Gypsy 05 white horse billboard...

Gypsy05 horse billboard
Unfortunately this billboard from Gypsy 05 stood out for all the wrong reasons, as Daily Billboard mistook the female model astride a white horse to be a drag queen riding a unicorn (it is in the center of West Hollywood after all and from a distance those pointy ears extending above the billboard looked like the horn of the mythical creature).

Obviously that would have been the ultimate fairytale, but it does prove that this dreamy fashion billboard snapped along Santa Monica and La Cienega Boulevards on March 28, 2011, catches your eye and makes a colourful statement.
