Stripping at the drop of a hat a good idea?

Of course, a fashion website as fab as NOUS, (Darling!) obviously devote a lot of time to extolling the wonders of clothing . . . today though, we’re not worried about whether you’re wearing one of next season’s Burberry Aviator jackets, a lama-fur jumper or even a velour tracksuit because we just think you should COVER yourself up a bit!

Yes you! shining stars such as former EastEnders actress Lucy Benjamin, Apprentice contestant Kate Walsh, ex-Strictly Come Dancing contestant Camilla Dallerup and Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury, (and even Sol Cambell and our hero, Biggins) who all agreed to pose nude as part of the Give Up Clothes For Good campaign.

It's aim is to persuade the public to strip their wardrobes and sell their old clothes to raise funds for Cancer Research UK – a fabulous campaign for a brill charity so worthy that Grazia Daily wasted no time in supporting their celebrity auction, mere weeks ago. BUT! Can’t you raise money in any other way? How does nakedness even represent the fight against cancer?

Although it was pointed out quite fairly that all this skin does attract good press coverage . . . however! Highly paid, talented stars as you undoubtedly are, can you not come up with anything more imaginative than black and white, (hides a multitude of chins), retouched portraits in coy, ‘hand bra’ poses?  

Does stripping off automatically constitute a good deed these days? Let us know whether starkers celebs are fabby or shabby in the comments box below . . . .
