Stylish had the chance to talk to three of the campaign stars, Ribeiro, Pasible and Thunder, who revealed that their experiences posing nude was varied. While Ribeiro is a natural at this point, Pasible hasn’t worked much in this realm yet.

“I don’t have much experience posing nude, but for this campaign I tried to prepare both physically and mentally,” she exclusively tells Us. “On the physical side, I try to stay active and healthy. And mentally, which is even more important, I’ve learned how to be confident in my own skin, quite literally, and stay open minded. Healthy body healthy mind, as they say.”

Meanwhile, after eons of posing for Victoria’s Secret, Ribeiro is such a pro it hardly even affected her. “I have been modeling for so many years that now I’m pretty comfortable with shooting nude,” she says. “No matter what you have on, or don’t, once you get in front of the camera, it’s like a switch turns on and I’m playing a character.”

Also, having a supportive team of course makes a difference. “It’s also helpful, from a comfort level, when the team is professional, and you know you’re making something really beautiful and celebrating femininity.”

As for Thunder, she says it was all about keeping her mindset clear and focused. “There’s no set way to ‘properly prepare’ for such a baring moment,” she explains. “Knowing that this campaign was much bigger than just myself definitely helped in this regard.”

Ribeiro agrees. “It was inspiring to be surrounded by such a diverse group of women and to have the opportunity to shoot with photographer Charlotte Wales,” Ribeiro says. “Khadijha, Lea, Marihenny, Lisa and I all came from different walks of life, and together became a visual representation of the different types of female beauty.”
