She has been working hard at kick-starting her pop singing career over the past few years.
But it seems Tamara Jaber, 34, has ventured into the realm of performance art, having been spotted impersonating a mannequin at a busy shopping centre this week.
The former wife of shock-jock Karl Sandilands took to Instagram to document the bizarre outing, which involved painting her face an eerie shade of white and posing like a statue in public. She turned to Mannequin Madness in Oakland to use their mannequin warehouse for posing.
Donning a jet-black wig and bold red lipstick, Tamara completed her plastic-fantastic look by donning an all-white ensemble consisting of a cotton shirt with corset-detailing and capri leggings.
One particularly unusual photo depicts a close-up shot of Tamara’s face covered in what appeared to be a white stocking.
‘I AM MANI’, she wrote in the caption, adding the hashtags #newproject, #iammani, #behindthescenes and #restoreme.
In another image, a glassy-eyed Tamara was pictured sitting in a cardboard box surrounded by broken mannequin limbs and scrunched-up craft paper.
‘Mannequin spa day,’ she wrote in the caption.
Tamara, who hails from Sydney, is currently based in Los Angeles where she continues to pursue her music career.
