Miranda Kerr Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' Nude & It's Creating A Lot Of Controversy — PHOTOS
You might think that people would be on the happier side of things when they heard that one of the world's top supermodels is posing nude, but apparently, Miranda Kerr's naked Harper's Bazaar Australia cover is getting folks pretty darn angry, according to Perez Hilton. On the bright side, she looks gorgeous and full of self confidence, so there's that.
The model is on the cover of the glossy's January/February 2016 issue, and she's kicking off the new year in the boldest way possible — by posing naked. Kerr left little to the imagination, standing completely nude against a balcony (though covering herself up with her leg and her arms, of course), save for a pair of seriously stunning rose colored, glittering Christian Louboutin heels. Oh, and in case you couldn't tell — she looks so beyond fierce.
But instead of celebrating her decision, the public seems to be none too pleased with the cover. People took to social media to voice their outrage, saying that a Harper's Bazaar cover should be about fashion, calling the shot more worthy of Maxim, and claiming that Bazaar has lost track of who their reader is. Yikes.
Though for all the haters out there, there were of course plenty who also loved the shot.
Bazaar, as well as Kerr, took a risk with this cover, and rather than tear her/them apart for it, we should celebrate her self-confidence. We all lost our minds last week (in the best way possible) when John Stamos bared his naked butt for Paper magazine, so why the negativity towards Kerr?
Whatever you may think about her body, tearing her down for her decision is still a form of body shaming. Instead, we should promote body-positivity by celebrating her choice. We've seen her in a swimsuit a zillion times, guys — it's really not that different. If you do disprove, which is totally your prerogative, then it's best to say nothing at all. You could be unintentionally promoting body-shaming, and that's something best avoided at all costs.
