‘V’ Magazine’s Naked-Model Spread

The latest issue of V magazine features a racy spread with some of IMG's up-and-coming and star models, photographed by Mario Sorrenti. Jessica Stam, Liya Kebede, Sasha Pivovarova, Miranda Kerr, Hana Soukupova, and Hilary Rhoda all appear nude. For European mags a pair of bare breasts is as unremarkable as a Kanye West wearing silly shades. But in American mags bare nips are like $200 Christian Louboutins popping up at the Barneys' sample sale — a truly rare occurrence. But V may as well be throwing 70 pairs of $200 Loubs at us, because they don't just show blurry nipples, they've got full-frontal, white-sheet-writhing madness. And, oddly enough, it doesn't come across as gratuitous. Maybe Americans are finally becoming okay with nudity and the trend will trickle up to bigger publications. Have a look for yourself after the jump (NSFW). And some clothed pics follow the nudies.
