When it comes to Lady Gaga, it almost feels like we’ve seen it all. And then she’s photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for V magazine, we see more Gaga than ever before, and are instantaneously reminded that’s she’s never going to stop shocking us.
While no fashion magazine we’re aware of has ever put a terrorist on the cover, it’s not like the industry is immune to controversy. Whether it’s underage models, racial sterotyping, an abundance of skin, a shortage of body fat or any combination of these things, it seems every new turn gives us reason to peek a little closer for a bad weave or a horrifically amputated limb.
The billboard was banned in LA for the gratuitous nudity — we’re much more concerned with the racial overtones, though.
Because really, how else do you celebrate your 200,000th Twitter follower?
As much as Fashion Month is all about seeing dreamy clothes on the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, it’s also about the lack thereof. For fall 2013, designers sent out topless, bottomless, and downright naked models, and of course, we have it all right here.
You know the old adage “If you’ve got it, flaunt it”? Well, these celebrities are most certainly flaunting it with backless gowns, plunging necklines, and thigh-baring ensembles, and they’re doing it on the most-watched red carpet of the year.
Remember how blasé we were about a topless Lily McMenamy walking in Marc Jacobs‘ show last week? Well, British designer Pam Hogg one-upped him with several naked models at her London Fashion Week show.
After seeing so many half-naked ladies on the runway and red carpet, we’re kind of jaded to the sight of nipples, sideboobs, butt cheeks, and the like. But Marc Jacobs took nakedness to a whole new level at his fall 2013 show last night by putting 18-year-old Lily McMenamy, daughter of legendary model Kristen McMenamy, in a pair of high-waisted briefs and, well, not much else.
Not only is Vogue Paris considered one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world, it’s also made a name for itself with original, inspiring, and occasionally controversial photography. But instead of featuring a big-named photographer and a high-concept shoot for its annual calendar, the 2013 edition is just full of repeat images.
Oftentimes, fashion magazine covers are all about the clothes and the styling. Other times, it is exactly the opposite, and they feature minimal garments. Harper’s Bazaar Espana‘s January cover most definitely falls into the latter category, and let’s just say that it is memorable. This is obviously NSFW.
It’s almost a rite of passage at this point for pregnant models and celebs to strip down for a naked magazine shoot. Demi, Britney, Cindy — they’ve all done it. The latest is Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret stunner Marisa Miller, who took off all her clothes for an exclusive Allure.com shoot.
While most ladies are swathed in maternity clothes at eight months, Girls star Jemima Kirke is just letting it all hang out for Vice.
Spanish magazine Fuera de Serie is making jaws drop with its August cover girl: Michelle Obama. And it’s because she is depicted as a topless black slave.
By now, everyone’s seen the naked Prince Harry photos. Well, Playgirl wants to offer the prince a pretty penny to strip down for a proper photoshoot. This was inevitable.
Inspiration can come from anywhere — books, movies, music, or whathaveyou. Well, for its latest editorial, Interview was inspired by Grindr, the GPS-enabled hookup app for gay men.
Ryan Lochte is undeniably the hottest Olympic swimmer of the Games. The guy has the most insane body ever, rocked those silly Ralph Lauren outfits, wore an American flag grill on the podium, stole our hearts in a “Call Me, Maybe” parody, and is also indirectly involved in another hilarious video. He is also very single, and definitely ready to mingle.
A relatively unknown Bollywood actress by the name of Sherlyn Chopra is making history as the first Indian woman to strip down for Playboy. How’d she skyrocket to naked fame? By writing to the mag that she wanted to. So this is how people are getting famous these days — by literally asking for it.
