Stripping off and leaving nothing to imagination is for many not exactly a comfortable experience, whatever the context. Some of the world’s famous supermodels including 29 year old South Sudanese Australian supermodel Grace Bol,  have opened up about what it’s like to bare all in front of the cameras.

Why pose nude in the first place?

For Art and artistic photography – that is stuff like drawings, paintings, sculptures or photographs. Even medical studies, especially of muscles. And most importantly for the MONEY – Yes, it is possible to make a living doing this. But it takes a lot of hard work and a good reputation.

We consider ourselves quite lucky that we get to experience things that other people might never even think of doing, in places we might otherwise never think of visiting – Grace Bol
Lots of people like looking at nude human bodies, and nudity appears in art and photographs.

I like to be comfortable in my own skin, so it's cool to like be able to shoot like that, i mean sometimes it's uncomfortable but depending on who you're shooting with, it's pretty nice.

Shooting in the nude is normal, I mean, I don't know I think you get used to it and if you have a good team around you and everyone making you feel comfortable, that's all that matters.

You have to be really confident with your body, you have to work out before the shoot of course, that's why I woke up early today and went to the gym and then you have to just know your best angles and feel comfortable. You had to love your body.

"I'm the most comfortable in my own skin, literally just my own skin. I don't know what it is but I think sometimes pieces of clothing can be unflattering." Chrissy Teigan who poses topless in the shoot says. "I actually am better in less clothing, it's a blessing and a curse" Teigan states.

My biggest fashion regret is… I have no regrets because I’m happy with how far I have come – Grace Bol
We don’t assume you’re a pervert
We don’t assume you’re a pervert. That said, we don’t really want you to touch us, especially when we’re nude – Grace Bol
We don’t like being compared to other models – It’s not big, healthy, helpful or clever. Being told that a previous model you’ve worked with was simply wonderful, is all well and good, but can be deflating if you are saying it to imply that you don’t think we’ll be as good or the same. It’s good if you can appreciate what’s in front of you; after all, you didn’t rehire your previous model, you hired us. We can offer something different! – Grace Bol
