Supermodels Strip Down For Alas & Piggott & LOVE Magazine (NSFW)




Conde Nast UK's LOVE magazine is a bi-annually fashion forward publication that launched in February 2009. Filled with edgy and artful photography by such well-known photographers as Terry Richardson, Mario Testino, Josh Olins, David Sims, Sølve Sundsbø, Juergen Teller, Angelo Pannetta and of course, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the magazine is light on editorial and heavy on nude models.



For their third issue, they featured 8 different covers of nude supermodels Lara Stone, Jeneil Williams, Amber Valletta, Naomi Campbell, Kristen McMenemy, Daria Werbowry, Natalia Vodianova and Kate Moss with strategically placed censor bars. The magazine also includes editorial shots of the same models baring all.

Shot by talented and respected fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and styled by Katie Grand, the magazine's 3rd issue and its 8 covers were very hyped.




The Gap (UK) even proposed a limited edition Tee of each of the 8 covers:



The T-shirts went on sale now at Dover Street Market in London and Colette in Paris, priced £30 and quickly sold out. All profits from the GAP LOVE tee shirts went to support Haiti. The one exception was Kate Moss' tee, whose profits went to Great Ormond Street, a UK children's charity.

All 8 covers are shown below, along with a few of the very risqué, but stunning editorial shots. As artful as they are, this makes this post inappropriate for those under 18. Please view with discretion.

There are more very sexy, very naked models within. And yes, you can see all of those here at Huffington post.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott also shot the magazine's very first cover, shown below:
