German Vogue‘s Naked, Unairbrushed ‘Health Initiative’ Editorial
Condé Nast International and Vogue announced their “Health Initiative” — which pushes for a healthier body image within the pages of all the magazine’s international iterations, as well as within the industry as a whole — earlier this month, promising that the editors would debut the features in their June issues.
German Vogue is making good on their promise with an unairbrushed and naked spread featuring actresses, models, and even editor-in-chief Christiane Arp. Peter Lindbergh photographed actresses like Karina Krawczyk, models like Julia Stegner, Nadja Auermann, and Toni Garrn, and even the glossy’s own head honcho for a black and white, clothing optional shoot. The result is a lot of nipples, rib cages, and wrinkles.
Most of the naked editorials we’ve seen have featured plus-sized models, like this Vogue Italia spread and this controversial Plus Size Model editorial. We dig the plus sized editorials, but we’re also glad to see the other side of things.
Check out some of the pics below (some are NSFW), and see more over at German Vogue. What do you think about the spread?
