Celebrities go make-up free for Vanity Fair

We are so used to seeing our favourite actors and musicians done up to the nines and looking fabulous.

However, Kate Winslet and Scarlett Johansson have proved in this month’s 20th Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair that you don’t need make-up to look fabulous after all. Looking fresh and radiant the two women bare all for a spread in the magazine.

The photos were shot by renowned photographer Chuck Close and there were some strict rules involved for those involved. The stars, normally used to being looked after and managed had to arrive alone or with one close friend; there were no fancy foods available – just sandwiches and coffee; the stars had to be available for three hours and have no hair, make-up or styling whatsoever.

We wonder if any divas turned this opportunity down!

Close has admitted that his unorthodox and refreshing way of shooting his subjects can sometimes gain “rough” results due to lack of photoshop and airbrush.

Other portraits also included Brad Pitt and Oprah Winfrey.
