Sienna Miller, 30, has officially joined the likes of Demi Moore, Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson in posing nude while pregnant, only the edgy actress' artistic take on what now seems like a celebrity rite of passage is predictably a lot more racy.
A nude portrait of Sienna Miller will be featured in British artist Jonathan Yeo's first major exhibition titled "(I've Got You) Under My Skin," which was taken when Sienna was still very much pregnant with her daughter Marlowe, who was born in July.
"This portrait of Sienna was painted a few weeks before the birth of her baby Marlowe and is part of a series of pictures of her which I plan to exhibit next year," wrote Yeo in the catalog which accompanies the show, via British Vogue. "It is a tribute to her courage and self-confidence that she agreed to sit for this. I can think of many figures whose public currency in part revolves around their appearance who would prefer to hide themselves away for nine months."
And clearly, Sienna had no problems baring everything -- body wrinkles and all.
....In fact, it's kind of a refreshing alternative to her fellow stars' airbrushed to death magazine covers, no?
"I wanted an image that epitomized the human body in its most naturally beautiful state to make the sharpest possible contrast with my other paintings in this exhibition, which document patients undergoing cosmetic surgery in a bid to help them conform to societal notions of beauty," Yeo added about his shockingly real portrait of Sienna. "It made sense to me to unveil this image for the first time in Germany, a country with a very relaxed attitude to nudity, where it is not automatically sexualized or deemed scandalous."
Yeo's exhibition is open from November 9 until January 12, 2013 at the Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin.
