Kelly Osbourne's nude shoot
KELLY Osbourne "s**t herself" when she read the brief for a recent magazine photoshoot.
The 'Fashion Police' host was "honoured" to be approached by Herring&Herring to be photographed by Dimitri Scheblanov and Jesper Carlsen but was stunned to learn they wanted to picture her surrounded by naked people.
She said: "When I was first approached by Herring&Herring with the opportunity to work with two of my favorite photographers, Dimitri Scheblanov and Jesper Carlsen, I automatically said yes. I felt so honored. About two weeks later, I received the final concept and story board sent over to me and I s**t myself because it was a photoshoot where everybody was to be naked except me."
Kelly admits she was most concerned that she wouldn't be able to stop "staring" at the models' genitals and initially got the giggles when she stepped on set.
She added on her blog: "I'm not one to go back on my word so I took sometime to mentally prepare for an awkward shoot. What if I got the giggles? What if someone had an awkward-looking private part that I couldn't stop staring at? But knowing who I was working with I took a leap of faith.
"The day of the shoot I walked in sweating with nerves. I sat down to start hair and make-up and just as I had feared got a case of the giggles."
However, the 29-year-old star eventually realised she was being "ridiculous" and learned a lot from the shoot.
She said: "But after Dimitri and Jesper were so welcoming and introduced me to all of the models, I suddenly realized how ridiculous I was being ... as it takes a brave and confident woman who in my eyes must be so comfortable with their body to stand in front of a room full of people they don't know, in the name of art.
"This experience went from terrifying to inspirational and gave me a whole new perspective and appreciation for self-confidence."
