Cambridge University students decided to promote fellow classmate, Lily Cole’s eco friendly fashion line. So they took to the fields on a chilly day. They shot a series of risqué poses with the models wearing almost nothing. In one shot a 20 year old King’s College undergraduate can be seen in nothing but a scarf covering her head and flowing down to cover other body parts.
Charlotte, the model, insists that the photos have artistic integrity. “It was good fun and I thought the pictures had real artistic integrity. I had no qualms about doing it. I am happy with my body although I would change a lot of things if I had the power.”
Jess Kwong, fashion editor for the school paper, Varsity, said: “The pieces are simple and lovely, which is why we kept the photo shoot as simple as possible.”
Varsity is the oldest continuously running independent student paper. It was first published in 1947 and contains a fashion shoot in every issue.
They are not the first student paper to publish risqué photos. A few years back the independent Cambridge University magazine also published questionable material. A blonde student was wearing a black thong, stockings and a necklace. She was perched over one of the historic bridges with her legs provocatively positioned.
