Sky Ferreira Makes Waves With Her Unretouched Playboy Magazine Cover.

Singer Sky Ferreira is not your average Playboy bunny of yesteryears- for one, she does not appear naked. The magazine stopped featuring full nudity last year October. Ferreira is making headlines for the mag’s ‘Renegade’ October issue as the first Playboy bunny to have creative control over her images as well as directing the photography for the shoot.

Sky was photographed by her friend, Sandy Kim, and interviewed by actor Bruce Dern.

Some outtakes:

It is great to see such raw, and female-directed images, that are done from the individual’s creative vision, and within the individual’s control. It is indeed rare to see photos of a nude woman, under her own direction, and that are not driven by the mainstream defined comfortable image of female sexuality. Even more so,the photos are unretouched and unedited, a trend fast gaining momentum among famous females.

The images have received praise, due to their empowering nature:
