she won't pose nude

"I could not pose nude. Nothing against those who do, but I never felt right about it. It's not something that would make me proud."
SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - One less thing for Brazilian soccer star Ronaldo to worry about in the run-up to the World Cup -- his supermodel girlfriend says she will never pose in the nude.
Raica Oliveira said in an interview published on Tuesday in the newspaper Folha de S.Paulo that she planned to marry and to have children, but had no timetable set.
Asked if there was any work she would not do, she said: "I could not pose nude. Nothing against those who do, but I never felt right about it. It's not something that would make me proud."
Raica, 22, spent Monday with Ronaldo at the Brazilian team's hotel in Konigstein, Germany, before heading back across the Atlantic for modeling assignments in New York and Rio de Janeiro.
"Raica, the solution for Ronaldo," Folha said, noting that she had helped him deal with his blistered feet. He has been recuperating from blisters on both feet but resumed training with the team on Tuesday, Brazil's squad doctor Jose Luis Runco told reporters in Germany.
Brazil, the defending champion, plays Croatia in its first game next Tuesday in Berlin.

This Supermodel Works

“I want all gay people to be free and embrace themselves for coming out and doing the right thing” Dickinson said.

Fans of Janice Dickinson’s biting commentary on “America’s Next Top Model” will rejoice to learn that the self-proclaimed “world’s first supermodel” is hosting her own modeling show called “The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency,” debuting 10pm, Tues, June 6, on the Oxygen Network
On her new reality TV venture she will choose five male and female models to sign up with her own new modeling agency based in Los Angeles.
Dickinson was “Top Model’s” Simon Cowell, the bitchy judge who wasn’t afraid to speak her mind and didn’t care what the contestants thought, until her departure in 2005. Since she was replaced with Twiggy, all fans agree that there’s a certain “Janice se quoi” missing from the show.
Dickinson had a brief stint on VH1’s “The Surreal Life” last year but that B-list spectacle lacked the juicy goodness of over-the-top vanity and obsession with beauty, weight and plastic surgery that is Dickinson’s trademark. (During a recent phone interview with the Washington Blade, Dickinson announced, “I was just waving to my plastic surgeon from the [car] window.”)
“Since I have the hottest men in the world, you’ll just have to tune in and find out how I take all their clothes off to find out if they’re packing,” Dickinson said.
Gay men have been a faithful audience for Dickinson. After all, even she says she’s a “gay man in a supermodel’s body.” And as if to illustrate that point, when asked for her beauty pet peeve she answered, “It’s hard to say what I would change because my dick keeps falling out. How funny was that?”
Dickinson calls herself “a gay icon, not a bi icon.”
“I want all gay people to be free and embrace themselves for coming out and doing the right thing,” Dickinson said. “Thousands of gay men made me who I am in the beginning. I’m a gay man in a supermodel’s body. I’m the one who said it first, not Tyra Banks,” said Dickinson.
And that’s not the only disparaging remark Dickinson has for “Top Model” host and creator Banks. When asked what celebrity she’d most like to make over, Dickinson replied, “Tyra Banks.”
“She needs a big makeover from J.D.,” said, well, J.D. “I hope she gets the humor to that. She’ll never laugh at that, but she should. She should laugh at herself a little more.”
And Banks isn’t the only model Dickinson has strong opinions about. She insisted that no other supermodels were hosting reality TV shows. For the record, Heidi Klum hosts Bravo’s “Project Runway” (“mundane trash,” Dickinson called the gay favorite); Rachel Hunter hosted WE’s “Style Me”; and of course, there’s Banks.
“Don’t put there are other supermodels hosting reality shows because they’re not,” Dickinson says. “If you’re referring to Rachel Hunter—please. She’s a cow. Tyra Banks. Please. She had to retire. She’s ready for like missy sizes. I can still walk the runway on eight-inch heels and still fit into a sample size. So that’s the difference, alright?”
She did have softer words for “American Idol” judge, Simon Cowell, who she said she “has the hots for.” But then, in true Janice Dickinson fashion, she added, “He’s got a flabby ass. He’s not rich enough.”

Supermodel Victoria Silvstedt

Supermodel Victoria Silvstedt almost made me forget about the sad news of Halle Berry's new love interest when we saw these shots of her traipsing around in a bikini top and some short, short daisy dukes.

sexy pose

Supermodel Claudia Schiffer strikes sexy pose for Germany
Model Claudia Schiffer Monday unveiled a patriotic poster of herself wrapped naked in her national stamen as part of a publicity campaign for Germany.
Her picture appears under the banner 'Invest in Germany Boys' and will be displayed at London's Bank underground station during the tournament.
The supermodel, who lives in Britain, urged her fellow Germans to wave their national stamen at the Germany in the same way millions of English people will be displaying the Cross of St George.

She said: 'In England everyone waves the English flag, on t- shirts, on posters framed at home. This does not exist in Germany at all,' Britain's Press Association reported.
The supermodel said Germans were aware of their country's history but added: 'Today we are much more cosmopolitan. We have changed and grown into a positive nation with a great positive, democratic development.
'I hope within Germany we can make it cool that we can wear a German flag and not be embarrassed about it.'
Ms Schiffer said she was keen to convince the English and the rest of the World that Germany was 'fun and cool.'
After unveiling the poster at the German embassy in London, Schiffer said she had been influenced by Brigittr Bardot being photographed with the French flag which had given France a 'feminine accent.'
The model is the face of a campaign to use the World Cup to rebrand Germany's image. Germany is being promoted as the 'Land of Ideas' - a phrase coined by President Horst Koehler - and a cosmopolitan, innovative, modern country.
The campaign is aimed at other countries, including Britain, to promote business investment and tourism in Germany.

Carolyn Murphy

"I'm looking forward to joining the... roster of women who have personified the image of beauty for Estee Lauder over the years. This is an incredible opportunity."
When informed she had made the cover, Murphy said, ""I never thought I'd make the pages of Sports Illustrated, because I've always been skinny. But after I had my daughter, I had hips, I had boobs..."

Carolyn Murphy, born on August 11, 1975, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA, is an American supermodel. Graduated from Choctawhatchee High School in Fort Walton Beach.
She is featured on the cover of the 2005 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She was VH1/Vogue's "Model of the Year" in 1998. She is currently the face of Estee Lauder, replacing Elizabeth Hurley as the company's primary female model.

Carolyn grew up throughout Northwest Florida spending most of her childhood in a trailer park in Panama City, Florida. At the age of 16 she was spotted by Mary Lou Nash, owner and operator of Mary Lou's Models, a modeling agency. Nash saw Carolyn's potential and soon she was modeling in local ads and magazines throughout Florida and Alabama.
When she graduated from high school Murphy moved to Milan to further her modeling career. Her career kicked into high-gear when she bleached her hair platinum blond for a photo shoot ruining her hair and causing it to fall out. Because of this she had to get a boyishly short hair cut which made her popular with many top photographers and soon she was in major magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Vogue and was named VH1's "Model of the Year" at the 1998 Fashion Awards.
She also started an acting career with the role of Dubbie the Blonde in Barry Levinson's Liberty Heights in 1999.

Murphy married surf shop owner Jake Schroeder whom she met on vacation. She gave birth to their daughter Dylan Blue on 28 December 2000 and the three posed for Vogue magazine as Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, and Frances Bean Cobain.
The couple split in 2001 and Murphy began seeing Brandon Boyd of the band Incubus.
