Lara Stone poses nude post-baby for Juergen Teller [NSFW]
The world is no stranger to photoshoots in which models or celebrities bare all during their most glowing periods of their pregnancy, even if at times some have caused more controversy than others. However it seems that nothing is as controversial as a post-baby body, so the news today over Lara Stone’s un-retouched nude photoshoot with Juergen Teller for System Magazine seems to have the world a little taken aback.
Let’s make one thing clear first: the Dutch model (who dons Calvin Klein underwear, the brand she’s been the face for plenty of times) is no stranger to nudity, so the fact that these pictures are so ‘controversial’ has nothing to do with her female figure but it’s the fact that she’s proudly showcasing a female figure in an unedited way. Sure, this isn’t new either, but it’s a powerful decision between her and Teller (as well no stranger to nudity) to show a non-sexualized image of a new mother’s nude body despite making some people uncomfortable.
The photos are a beautiful combination between intimate and voyeuristic and perfectly culminate the nature of both collaborator’s work. Stone looks fantastic – not just as an unedited post-baby model, but as a person posing nude for a celebrated photographer. We’re proponents of #freethenipple always and forever, so let it all hang out Lara, we’ve got your back.
