Miranda Kerr Channels A Nude Porn Star For V Magazine

Prudes, be warned — V's latest issue features a lot of nudity, like, a lot. First, there's the monstrously, almost-NSFW Lady Gaga shoot by Inez and Vindooh. Then, there's a Miranda Kerr spread featuring Mrs. Bloom in the buff.
Of course, Kerr is stunning — a flower crown has never looked more sublime. Even our favorite leg veil looks great. But the pics go far beyond the accessories, as they pay tribute to the notorious, Hungarian-born politician, Ilona Staller a.k.a. Cicciolina. As an active member of the Italian parliament between 1987 and 1992, Staller continued her work as a hardcore porn actress. On more than one occasion, Cicciolina even offered to have sex with Saddam Hussein in exchange for peace. It's a beautiful shoot, but it's a beautiful shoot with a political message that is rather unclear. Though, ultimately, perhaps one shouldn't think so hard when there's a nip-slip involved.
