Hawko poses 'naked and untouched'

JENNIFER Hawkins' latest photoshoot features her 'naked and untouched' on the front of a popular fashion magazine, but not everyone approves.

According to Marie Claire, the shoot, where the former Miss Universe posed naked and without airbrushing, was intended to "encourage positive attitudes to body image" and support charity the Butterfly Foundation.

However, curvy radio host/comedian Bianca Dye has slammed the magazine, claiming Hawkins is not a positive role model for body image. Dye showed-off her curvy figure in a recent nude shoot.

"How is this promo4 "positive body image" 2the women of Oz!!!?Do they think we r stupid?!JH is hot but NOT the NORM (SIC)," Dye tweeted yesterday.

In the shoot's accompanying feature, Hawkins talks about the pressures she faced since being crowned Miss Universe in 2004 and rising to fame and confesses that she never could have done a shoot like this two years ago.

“I would have been worried about what people thought, whether it was the right decision – a thousand different things… But over the past year and a half I’ve grown into myself, and I’m more confident and comfortable within the modelling industry. I did it for the experience…It felt quite sensual and sexy. I felt empowered,” she said in the interview.
