Another model got topless in a New York restaurant for art’s sake.
Families and couples dining were given a shocking between-meal spectacle as the alluring Houston model Shelby Carter strutted their way and removed her bra on an outside terrace.
Her racy performance was captured by photographer/videographer Allen Henson who is making a career out of filming topless models in public eating places.

The restaurant’s managers called police who met Ms Carter and Mr Henson outside of the classy New York restaurant.
The two solicited the cops for a photo of them and Carter, eliciting the response, ‘Where is this gonna go?’
It was a smart question, considering two New York City police officers who posed with a different topless model on the street for a photograph taken by Mr Henson are facing an internal investigation.
Model Cheyenne Lutek, 19, was photographed with the officers on Sunday, a week after she exposed her bare breasts at Verso Restaurant in Alphabet City while astounded patrons looked on.
After she was told to cover up by staff, the glamorous blonde upped the ante by taking the X-rated stunt on to the streets of Manhattan and posing with the officers near their Housing Bureau station.

Law and order: Cheyenne Lutek poses half-naked with two grinning NYPD cops. It is entirely legal for women to appear in New York City streets partially nude but the officers are now under investigation
Henson told the New York Daily News that one of the officers 'couldn't stop grinning' while the other was more awkward around the topless model.
After snapping the shot, Henson tweeted: 'A nice stroll on a New York Summer evening. With @Cheyenne_Lutek and a couple of NYC's finest boys in blue.'
Police sources told the newspaper that the Internal Affairs Bureau has launched an investigation, which will likely be given to the officers' integrity control officer.
The men are allowed to pose for photographs but sources told the Daily News that the raunchy nature of the picture could lead to a verbal reprimand.

In May, the New York City Police Department released an official memo cited by The New York Times informing all police officers that it is not illegal for women to walk around the city shirtless, and that they should not be cited for public lewdness or indecent exposure.
The order given to the city’s 34,000 cops stems from a 1992 New York State Court of Appeals, which states that baring one's chest in public is legal for a woman as it is for a man.
Miss Lutek and Mr Henson hit a trendy Italian restaurant last weekend where the photographer pulled out his camera and proceeded to snap pictures of the X-rated scene.
Verso's owner Labinot Baraliu rushed over the table and demanded that the half-naked woman put her clothes back on.

In response, Miss Lutek insisted that it was 'perfectly legal' to go topless in the restaurant.
'In 15 years [in the restaurant business] I've seen all kinds of things, but not this,' Baraliu explained to the East Village blog EV Grieve. 'It was funny, but at the same time I was like "WTF - is this really happening?"'
After exchanging a few words with the owner, the couple were escorted out of the bistro.
Despite the legislation because a restaurant is private property, its patrons are subject to whatever rules the business has in place.
