Trend Watch: The Makeup Free Celebrity Photo

In the ever-changing styles of Hollywood exposure, the old naked was going out to nightclubs without underwear. The new naked, say insiders, is going in front of the camera without makeup. The pictures seem to be turning up more and more. The latest, and best, is the new Versace print campaign featuring Christina Aguilera. The shots were made by Steven Meisel in April. I'm looking for opinions on why this particular trend is hot right now.--David Schonauer
