Washington, Aug 9 : American burlesque artist Dita Von Teese was so engrossed in the photo shoot she was doing as cover girl for the fall issue of boutique magazine Genlux, that she stripped totally nude for the shoot.
The shots were high-end, Japanese-themed and were taken by world-renowned photographer Marc Baptise, who is famous for his artful nude books.
Teese was so caught up with the shooting of the pictures that she volunteered to take it all off after the shots for the magazine were completed, and was even "happy to oblige" Baptise in doing so.
Meanwhile, besides doing nude picks and picking up 160,000 dollars per party for pole dancing, Teese is also busy promoting MAC makeup's fundraising efforts for people living with HIV/AIDS.
"I especially got into their promotion of teaching women about safe sex and about not being afraid to carry condoms," Fox News quoted Teese as telling the magazine.
"One of the things I tell them is, 'Most men are just going to be really happy to be there in the first place, so don't be afraid to insist on safe sex every time'," she added.
