sasha pivovarova pregnant nude.jpg

Okay so it is a semi-nude baby belly but even so it seems everywhere you turn these days another model/actress/singer is stripping down to reveal their growing bumps. Not that we mind one bit!

The ever-beautiful Sasha Pivovarova is the latest celeb to show us her bump only this time it wasn't for a magazine cover or ad campaign but purely for herself (and the internet). Taken in black-and-white, the mum-to-be was captured by her husband photographer Igor Vishnyakov. At eight or nine months, the 26-year-old looks incredible in just a simple pale floor-length skirt. Sasha announced in December that she was expecting her first child with hubby Igor, however she has yet to disclose the sex of her unborn baby.

She is, of course, not the only starlet to get her kit off during her pregnancy. Just three days ago we posted a story about Julia Restoin-Roitfeld who shed her clothes for the cover of i-D magazine. The 31-year-old was styled by mum, former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, Carine Roitfeld for the quirky cover. Lucky girl! Meanwhile, Alessandra Ambrosio (who recently gave birth to a boy) bared all for an ad campaign to promote Vivara jewellery. And let's not forget Jessica Simpson, new mum to daughter Maxwell Drew, who also went naked for the April cover of US Elle. What started off with that iconic Demi Moore 1991 cover for Vanity Fair has now become big business for magazines and companies alike!

What do you think of celebrities posing nude for magazines and ad campaigns? Do you think it is cashing in on the public's fascination with famous people or do you believe it is a nice, beautiful thing?
