Harper’s Bazaar has decided to eschew its usual high fashion ensembles and feature Miranda Kerr nude but for a pair of shoes on its Jan/Feb 2016 cover.
Exhibitionists of the world rejoice! Though even Playboy has acceded to the reality that the nude centrefold no longer has a place in the modern world, Harper’s Bazaar has deemed nuding up high fashion.
Well, actually, editor Kellie Hush says a large wardrobe of designer fashion was procured for the shoot with Kerr, which took place in a West Hollywood penthouse.
It just ended up being unnecessary. Surplus to requirement.
“What we captured between outfit changes was a woman who is incredibly comfortable in her own skin (and why wouldn’t you be?),” she wrote in her editor’s letter of the 32-year-old model.
Not sure if she’s trying to imply that Kerr was unaware of this photograph being taken and she just regularly arches her body over balconies while artfully covering her offensive nips, but I’m fairly certain Kerr would look just as hot clipping her toenails so it’s neither here nor there.
