Jessica Simpson is daring to go nude on a new magazine cover - she will appear on the front of a U.S. fashion publication without the help of make-up or airbrushing.
The singer/actress has travelled the world as part of her new MTV show Jessica Simpson's The Price of Beauty, in which she discovers the local beauty regimes and culture in different countries, including those of African tribeswomen and Japanese Geishas.
And the star is pushing home her message of inner beauty by stripping off her make-up for the May (10) cover of America's Marie Claire.
Simpson has also agreed for the revealing snap to be published without being digitally re-touched.
The stripped-back shoot is to promote Simpson's interviews with Los Angeles women for the mag, in which they discuss their bodies.
