A theme amongst the beautiful elite has been emerging in recent years in the form of 'baring all', yes I'm talking about our beautiful celebrity dimes!
These pics of celebrity expectant mothers revealing bump and navel (and the occasional side boob) in a 'tasteful' nude shot, or a WAG going make up free or a popstar shedding her clothes for an awareness campaign are all arguably admirable things to do. And whilst I neither commend nor condemn such women for their decision to expose themselves, I don't know why as a society it is often regarded as brave!
Bearing in mind that they are undoubtedly stunning in the facial and physique area- naturally (or otherwise!). Unlike the rest of us, they are privy to state of the art photographers and glam squads, to beautify them at all times. Hey by those standards, for the rest of us we should get awards just for braving the elements and venturing out of our homes everyday!
Don't get me wrong- I'm not knocking them- I just don't see why it's brave?? Why is it brave that they consider themselves beautiful enough without cosmetics and are willing to share that with the world? Would they really do it if they didn't like how they looked, and how many slapped the photographers with injunctions when they realised they looked better with the slap on!
I jest, but surely the word brave should be reserved for those displaying true heroism, like uploading pics of their weighing scales after hitting up the all you can eat buffet or using the bravest caption of all time; 'No filter!'.
