Olivia Culpo nude photos for Treats Magazine should certainly spice up this saddest day of the week for some of you out there!
The former Miss Universe 2012 looks absolutely STUNNING in her birthday suit, but it wasn’t an easy decision for her.
“I have never done a nude shoot before. I had been asked, but honestly I did not feel comfortable because I was fearful of how it would be perceived. Once I realized this was an opportunity to express myself in a way I hadn’t before, in such an organic and candid sense, the experience became more about art and emotion than me as a physical being.”
Photographer Tony Duran was one of the main reasons she felt so comfortable:
“It was all really about the chemistry and trust I had with Tony as a photographer. He really had me focus on how I could connect with the camera…This shoot was more about letting myself go emotionally. Tony was adamant about having no makeup on the shoot, so there was no hiding behind make up or clothes to define me.”
And the 23-year-old has no regrets!
“I really enjoyed putting myself out there. It is very liberating to show who you really are. There is a sense of empowerment that I got from the shoot that is hard to explain.”
