Nudity has always been a part of fashion modeling. Fashion and nudity are the two sides of a coin, the ying and yang. Fashion merchandising is all about marketing, and in marketing sex sells. It is not unusual to see sexy girls displayed to sell women’s apparel because every woman wants to be sexy and attractive.
Taking that idea to its ultimate conclusion is the nude fashion show. Although this concept has not caught on quite so much in the United States, the nude fashion show is very popular in Europe. It is just getting back to basics.
Here is a fashion show from France way back in 1954 that featured models in bra and panties plus some nudity.
Notice that the pretty girls were curvier and softer back than they are today. More natural looking.
