Writing about body love and acceptance? That’s my jam. Teaching women to embrace their supposed “flaws,” accept that physical beauty comes in infinite forms, and learn to love their own bodies just as they are? My life’s quest. So it is with great trepidation that I reveal the following: I really dislike being naked. I mean, if there’s gonna be a roll in the hay, that’s one thing, but hanging out in the locker room? Sleeping? Just about anywhere except the bathtub? I’d rather have a bare minimum of knickers and a bra. Keep reading »
Another day, another set of leaked nude photos. This is becoming a major trend! The latest to join Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn and Scarlett Johansson is “Glee”‘s Heather Morris. A number of naked pictures appear to have been hacked from her cell phone. Although she hasn’t commented on the photos yet, this isn’t the first time the celeb has made nude news. Back in 2010, naughty images of the actress surfaced and she admitted to posing in her birthday suit in her pre-fame days. “It’s not something I’m ashamed of,” she commented at the time. “Everybody should do tasteful beautiful nudes so when you get older you’re gonna be like, ‘Oh that’s when my body looked so great!’ ” The latest batch of nudes appear to be a lot less … tasteful, but she still looks amazing. Anyway, let this be yet another lesson to us all; destroy those suckers once they’ve served their purpose. [NY Daily News]
For Kate Walsh, star of “Private Practice,” posing naked on the cover of this month’s Shape was all about conquering a fear. “I was terrified, but I really wanted to do a naked cover—especially with Shape, because the magazine is about loving yourself inside and out,” she explained. “Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy. I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that.” [viaKate-Book.com]

I’ve never been one to adhere to “seasonal” nail colors — neon pink in the dead of winter? Bring it on. Despite my best efforts to the contrary, I still dress almost exclusively in black, an idiosyncrasy that I will defend until I’ve gone blue in the face, which would actually add a bit of much-needed color to my persona … but I digress. I’ve always kept color strictly on my nails, and done so with fervor, claiming the brightest of blues, moody purple-greys, and vivid reds as my “signature” colors. Normally, the past few months and the according drop in temperature would have me breaking out my most eye-searing shades and donning them with aplomb, but not so. Maybe it’s the unseasonably warm weather that’s gotten under my skin, or maybe I’ve simply become weird (become weird? Ha!), but I’ve forgone all of the colors I normally reach for in favor of… nude.

India and Pakistan haven’t exactly been the best of neighbors since, oh, the beginning of time. (Something to do with who claims ownership over the territory of Kashmir, which lies in the geographic middle of the two countries). The latest breach between the two? A Pakistani model claims that the Indian version of lad mag FHM doctored a photo of her to make it appear as though she were nude on the cover of its latest issue. Keep reading »
