December 2014 | Diamonds are a girl's best friend
A WOMAN has modelled in a Marilyn Monroe inspired photoshoot - wearing a running blade encrusted with crystals. 
Belina Gatland wanted the shimmering prosthesis for a charity photo-shoot. Prosthetist Bob Watts worked closely with GlamSticks to create the glamourous end result. 
Belinda modelled the crystal leg to re-enact one of the most iconic images of the 20th Century; the infamous moment when Marilyn's white dress blows up as she stands over a subway grate.  
She said: 'I feel a bit like Cinderella as I am the only person in the world whom it fits. It is quite surreal as people come and take photographs of it, it is truly beautiful.' 
Belinda had her left leg amputated after years of operations to try and correct damage that resulted from a horse-riding injury.  
Now, with a standard running blade from Dorset Orthopaedic she lives an active life in Dubai and continues to work with horses as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist, keeping horses in good physical health.
