Attention budding models: just in case you needed any extra reasons as to why you should not be taking your clothes off on photoshoots, look no further than Miranda Kerr. Sure she might be a fully fledged supermodel now, appearing on the Victoria's Secret catwalks and the covers of numerous international magazines – and let's not forget that movie star husband of hers in Orlando Bloom – but she was young and inexperienced once too. As an 18 year old, Kerr allowed a test photographer to shoot her topless. Fast forward nine years, and here comes the nasty part: as revealed by Frockwriter this weekend past, the photographer decided to cash in on Kerr's success and sell the topless pics to the highest bidder – on the proviso that his name wasn't mentioned. Patty Huntington named and shamed him in her original post, so if you're interested, the happy-snapper was Jasper Glavanics.
It gets better.
Glavanics wasn't just some random photographer shooting 18 year old Miranda Kerr, he was her room-mate. Charming.
Now, it's not as if these are the only topless photos of Miranda Kerr floating around – she did do the Pirelli calendar with Terry Richardson last year – but presumably they're the only ones being touted as Miranda Kerr: naked, and 'barely legal'.
The moral of the story is simple: keep your clothes on, girls. You never know when those nudie photographs are going to turn around and bite you in the bared-for-the-world-to-see ass.
I LIKE YOU!
