Harper's Bazaar shot Miranda Kerr for a fall fashion editorial showcasing boots. As should be obvious, the magazine really wanted the boots to be the focus of the spread. So Kerr is depicted naked. Having Kerr be nude to sell boots is far from "gratuitous" or "objectifying" or "tired and obvious"; it is an aesthetic choice completely justified — nay, demanded! — by the subject matter of the story. Exactly how else are you supposed to advertise boots, hm? (This is, incidentally, the second time this week we've seen Kerr's business.) So just look at those boots. Look long and hard at those boots. Do you think you'll be buying any boots this season? Boots. [HB]
