Maria Menounos, Debra Messing and Leslie Bibb stripped down for our shoot, draped in just a few strands of diamonds. Here's how they got their bodies—and minds—ready for the big reveal.
As a teen beauty-pageant contestant, Menounos received low swimsuit scores. "I was hippy and I didn't diet for contests. And it didn't bother me," she says. The 33-year-old Extra host has a healthy attitude about her body, but that doesn't mean she's comfortable getting naked. In fact, she's so hesitant to be bare it all that she's afraid of getting pregnant because of how much she'd have to expose."I have some serious issues here," she admitted. "But I want to get over that." She looked to this photo shoot to cure to her shyness, and it may have worked: "This was definitely challenging," she said, "but I feel so much better having done it."
At 43, Messing's decision to pose nude came from a natural process of self-acceptance. "Once you have a child, once you pass 40, you have a different relationship with your body," she said. "I love my body in a way I never have before." And the parts she loves the most? "My shoulders, clavicle, and chest," she explains. "I started out in dance—there's something beautiful about a dancer's upper body.
Following an indulgent two-week vacation, Bibb, 37, went on a four-day juice cleanse to get ready for her shoot. "It was an angry four days," says Bibb. "Sam [Rockwell, her boyfriend] was like, 'Thank God I'm not with you right now. You are not nice on the juice cleanse.'" Luckily, prepping her skin was an easier chore, as she stopped off at a Korean spa for a body scrub pre-shoot. "Everybody's naked there, and I don't mind," she said. "But I'm like a cat with a feather anytime I see a boob job. I can't look away.
"Fats are essential for healthy skin and hair and to maintain body temperature. Vegetarians must include walnuts, almonds and flax seeds for omega-3 fats that are found in fish."
