In the photography world there is a difference between being "naked" and "nude." The image above of Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson
is what you call "nude."
The artsy picture is from InStyle Magazine
for the sexy celebrity edition. Congrats to the photographer -- everything about the picture is beautiful, classy and elegant. Furthermore, (this is no insult to King
and other booty magazines), but isn't it great to see a Black woman posing (versus sticking her butt out) in such a graceful manner? Plus, it's a black and white, you can see the angles of her body - wow! Black women in the media are rarely presented in such a demur manner when it comes to their bodies.
Hooray for Taraji! Oh - she is 36 years old! She is sitting down girls who are 20 years old. Gotta love her! We are all eagerly anticipating I Can Do Bad All By Myself
What do you think of the image?
