The measure of a truly great model is how she bends over for the photographer. Stephie passed this test with flying colors with the stunning pose she adopts in picture #131. I'd love to see every girl photographed like this - a pose that is both incredibly sexy and artistically beautiful.
It's one thing to wear a cross as a sign of your faith. I have no problems with that. It's quite another to wear it/them as a fashion accessory, especially when you wear two that resemble rosary beads and have them dangling in crotch shots. That's just a sign of disrespect from both the model, the photographer and everyone else involved in the publication of the photos.
Not cool, folks.
Dark_Storm, just out of curiosity... have you ever seen Madonna's videos from the early '80's? She pretty much pioneered the use of rosaries/crucifixes on chains as fashion accessories.
Personally I don't see it as a disrespect thing at all, it's just a fashion thing.
But then again, I don't have a lot of use for organized religion so perhaps it's a personal bias on my part.
I believe this skirt just came with the crosses attached. I don't believe there are any religious connotations associated. I do see what you're saying, but if you look at a lot of clothing these days you will see similar adornments. If you google "jeweled cross on jeans" you will find a ton of results with crosses on people's rear ends. It is not intended as blasphemous, just decoration.
K - First, let me say that I don't subscribe to any particular organized religion, so I'm not coming at this from a Christian point of view.
That being said, symbolism --especially religious symbolism-- is a powerful thing. Just because a group of ignorant people (your "jeweled cross on jeans" people) chose to disrespect others' religious symbols doesn't make it OK.
In this day of religious extremism, its foolhardy to blithely desecrate another's religious symbols and think that you're protected by some nebulous idea of "free speech". That's how things like Charlie Hebdo occur. (Not that I condone violence.) It is best to just not do it in the first place.
Every major religion has a version of the Golden Rule ("Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you."). If you want respect for your beliefs, you have to respect others' beliefs.
If there were no religious connotations involved here, then it wouldn't have significantly impacted this photoshoot if the crosses had been removed. They certainly added nothing to it.
Interesting thing that most Christians today have totally forgotten... somewhere in the Gospels Jesus Christ is reported to have said something like,
"Blessed are ye when you are cursed and reviled in my name."
People of all religions have been persecuted for those religions throughout time. In China there was a constant war between Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. In Europe, there was constant warfare between varieties of Christianity for centuries. In the Middle East there's always been tension and sometimes outright warfare between Christianity and Islam and recently Judaism and Islam. Heck, when Christianity was brand new, Christians were persecuted by the Romans because they refused to give lip service to the Roman state religion.
Religious persecution is nothing new. If people were taught history, they'd know this and they'd be able to put their own beliefs and their tender feelings about those beliefs into perspective.
If the founder of your religion tells you not only to expect persecution but that this is actually an honor to him, then you have no business complaining about persecution.
Not, that is, that I think the crosses in this set are persecution ~ just that I think that anyone who interprets them that way is a) being silly and b) being WAY too sensitive. And c) not paying attention to what the founder of their own religion told them about persecution in the first place.
Hi Dark Storm,
I agree and I do not agree with you.
First of all: I do not like the crosses. They are indeed a sign of disrespect. As if the pics are trying to say: 'Take this you prude catholics!'
To me that's the opposite of a nude girl wearing a small cross around her neck. She's saying: 'I don't see a conflict between my sexuality and my (personal) beliefs.'
However, I don't think any religion should be treated in a special way. You have the right to offend ideas, I just don't think it's very wise to do so on a nude site. It's not arousing in any way, and that should be the very first thing photographer and model should be thinking about.
What a perfect beauty... excellent pictures...
Super sweet young lady so hot in her outfit.Incredible request more.
The skirt,if brief,twice as wicked.
I know...twice as bad :)The Seller
Is Stephie's skirt really that short, or is she just wearing it higher than it's intended to be worn? Either way, lots of wonderful things are spilling out of the bottom of her garment, and it's wonderful.
Utterly delicious. The way the thong frames the butt is wonderful. But could Stephie maybe smile once or twice?
Whoah! I have FINALLY received confirmation that it is, indeed, a new century... Antonio Clemens actually shot some upskirt pics! Thanks, Antonio!! ( : And thank you, Stephie!
This ticks almost all the boxes for me... Stephie looks gorgeous and the slow striptease is delicious. If she'd been wearing heels more appropriate to the elegant setting at the start, it would have been just perfect.
Could've been platform tennies - that would've been different. I like her pale areolae - whether natural or not. With her nationality I suspect they're from a kind of cultural thing done in certain regions.
Platform tennies? Those things are just plain silly. ( ;
The pale nipples have been explained by some of the photographers, Arkie. Apparently a lot of girls over in that area of the world wear pasties when tanning. According to the photogs it is thought to be a precaution against skin cancer.
Personally, I have a hunch (and I could be totally wrong about this) the proprietors of tanning salons probably "encourage" the use of pasties even when tanning nude out of a feeling of modesty, no matter how strange that sounds to us here.
Seems t be a little extra tease in her strip this time, I like it. :)
Funny thing, I felt like the running shoes/tennies look goes great with a blue jeans miniskirt... especially with the pretty cotton thong. If the thong had been silk or satin, and the miniskirt had been silk or satin, or had been a LBD, I would agree...
What is a LBD?
Little Black Dress.
