i realise this is going to be unpopular and possibly nitpicky but i think this spread is pretty tacky and the fact it's her first shoot post-gossip girl kind of makes it worse to me. i don't mind nudity or girls being sexy orrrr doing out of the ordinary photoshoots, but i don't know. i just don't think there's anything attractive or charming about this. it's very, "look! i can do something naughty!" to me.
She's done a lot of risque photoshoots during GG for Rolling Stone, NYT and GQ so I don't think this is meant to be a statement about the show's conclusion.
Personally, I love the juxtapose of the pics of her laidback real life style and the Flaunt shoot. She pulls both looks off effortlessly. Not the greatest model, but it does show her range as an actress and, like someone said, strong presence.
