Miranda Kerr bares all, yet again

Never mind Olympic golds, Miranda Kerr is singlehandedly (with the help of her legs, breasts and taut stomach) leading Australia's way in the highly physical sport of getting naked in front of the lens.

This time, the long-legged Aussie beauty has bared all for Harper's Bazaar US, leaving less to the imagination than even those tiny marathon two-pieces.

Absolutely nude barring a pair of sky-high boots, the 29-year-old's pert bottom, tousled hair, arched back and hands delicately cupping enviable breasts come together in that insouciant way that only Kerr seems to know how.

That is, with the help of infamous photographer and fashion’s enfant terrible, Terry Richardson, who has made a name out of snapping the unclad female form, photographing more semi-naked models than a Playboy printing press has seen.

The black-and-white pictures are part of the glossy's September issue, which sees a girly, powder-pink hued shoot of platinum-blonde rocker Gwen Stefani adorning its cover.

It comes just weeks after a set of nude pictures of Kerr in a range of compromising poses caused a stir online.

French photographer Lauren Damon was reportedly asked to remove the photos after the model, who has an 18-month-old son with husband and actor Orlando Bloom, was ruffled by the seductive shots going public.

True to form, Kerr's Harper's fashion shoot involves very few clothes, as such – boots by Tom Ford, Hermes and Reed Krakoff, which Kerr labelled "super-sexy" and "empowering" notwithstanding - but the accompanying interview goes some way to prove the Gunnedah girl does occasionally wear more than her birthday suit and the bikinis that made her so famous.

"I have always admired Audrey Hepburn's style and my nan has always been a style icon for me. Growing up I would play in her wardrobe and was very influenced by her. She taught me that you don't need to have a lot of money to have style. It's the way you put things together and how you carry yourself."

Boots on, breasts out, head back: Style indeed, Miranda, style indeed.
