    :swoon: She's a hottie! If you've got it, flaunt it. The photo was very tastefully done and for a good cause. Glad to see she's still in the public eye.

    That's not racy at all. In fact I think the photo itself is kind of asexual. It's just presenting the human body, and there was no intent to make it provocative.

    There's absolutely nothing racy about this.

    If they didn't apply Photoshop filters, she has amazingly smooth skin!

    I don't see how it's racy. She looks beautiful.

    Sorry for my choice of words, didn't know how nudity would be percieved, even if tastefully done. No denying she is a classic Gallic beauty.

    Am I the only one who's not impressed by this? I didn't think she'd be one to pose nude, honestly.

    Really tastefully done and for the right cause!

    As the campaign implied, it is a daring take on on delivering the powerful message "Underneath, we are all the same."

    I don't understand why people always think pose nude require perfection actually, I happen to find her feet beautiful, they are the feet of a hardworking skater.

    Beautiful girl and for a skater her feet are very nice! (I've scared small children at the sight of my feet. A doctor once asked me if I had rheumetoid arthritis!)

    I think posing nude for a charity like this (it's basically United Way, right? Hugely respected international charity), and posing nude for a fashion magazine, or a men's magazine are very different things.

    I have no idea what she did, but it's very possible she wasn't actually fully nude, as the important parts are covered, so they may have been covered for the shot too. If any of that covering showed, photoshop can fix it.

    I like this photo, Joannie looks amazing and very natural.
    Sarah Meier's Nike ad campaign was much... racier.

    There is absolutely nothing "shocking" or "racy" about this at all . . . likewise with Meier's shoot. They both look at ease with themselves and very naturally beautiful, unlike Lysacek's "I feel violated and uncomfortable" expression in his semi-nude shoot. If I were a woman and looked like Joannie or Sarah, I would go au natural all the time, baby! :swoon:

    Racy?! ...no.

    Beautiful and classy in the nude? Yes.

    I'm not sure how much PhotoShop work was done on this shot. I thought Joannie's arms were more muscular.

    She may have lost some muscle since she stopped competing. Show shape and competitive shape are two very different things.
