Melbourne, April 4 (ANI): Australian Minister for Youth and Sports Kate Ellis is sporting a new look for her campaign aimed at improving young women's body image - she slips into a tight leather dress and eight-inch heels.

Ellis, 32, has posed for Grazia mag in her strappy stilettos and two skin-tight outfits.

The snaps show Ellis strutting on a sports-field and athletics track in Adelaide and have appeared alongside an article on readers' attitudes to their bodies.

"I'm nervous; I haven't seen the photographs," News.com.au quoted Ellis as saying.

She added: "That's an issue we've been working really hard on, and if by wearing an outfit I probably wouldn't ordinarily choose I can help fashion magazines to promote a healthy body image and raise awareness amongst their readers, that must be a good thing.

"I want women to be able to read their fashion magazines if they so choose, and still have self-esteem and confidence at the other end of it. This is about working with the industry." (ANI)
