Nude Jennifer Hawkins poses on the cover of Marie Claire without being photoshopped. Some women are outraged.

I will be examining the photo and I'll get back to you in a week with my thoughts.....
An Australian model has done the unthinkable and posed nude and un-airbrushed on the cover of an Aussie magazine. However instead of being hailed a hero, she’s getting an earful.

Australian model and 2004 Miss Universe winner Jennifer Hawkins appears completely nude and without any help from Photoshop on the cover of the latest issue of Australian magazine Marie Claire. The issue was meant to promote and celebrate the ordinary woman’s body; however the cover has sparked outcry from Aussie women who say Hawkins, a lingerie model, doesn’t come close to representing “ordinary women.”Hawkins posed for the cover, warts and all so to speak, showing of “every lump, bump, and blemish (not that she has many) free from digital doctoring.” In an interview with the magazine, Hawkins says, "I'm not a stick figure--I thought it would be great to tell women to just be themselves and be confident." It’s a great message, but maybe Hawkins wasn’t the right messenger.

A signed copy of the photograph will be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to The Butterfly Foundation, a charity that provides support for Australians who suffer from eating disorders and negative body image issues.
