Celebrities posting images which aren't airbrushed, photoshopped or edited in any way is a rarity, but one singer is now taking a stand against body-shaming once and for all. 

27-year-old singer and actress Demi Lovato has had her struggles when it comes to loving her body, but now she has conquered her 'biggest fear' by revealing an unedited bikini photo with cellulite included.

"I'm just literally soooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited—and I hate that I did that but it's the truth) so that others think I'm THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it's just not me," she wrote in a lengthy caption.

"This is what I got," she said of her motivations to share the photo. "I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else's standards."

"Guess what, it’s CELLULITE!!! So here’s me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day," the star continued.

"It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet shit."

Lovato is guest-starring in the final series of Will and Grace, which marks her long-awaited return to the screen after suffering from a drug overdose last year and almost losing her life.

The incident was heavily publicised and saw the singer take a break from social media while she attended a rehabilitation facility for addiction. The Confident singer concluded the post by teasing new music;

"Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio. I’m working on an anthem. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too."

In the name of body-positivity Demi Lovato is baring it all in her new Vanity Fair photo shoot.

The “spontaneous, nude, make-up free” shoot took place this week with photographer Patrick Ecclestine. Demi was “suddenly inspired” to pose for a series of portraits with only three rules.

Those were: “no make-up, no clothes, no retouching”- and she looks incredible!

In her interview with the magazine, Demi explained where the idea for the shoot came from:

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past day, it’s that life is too short,” she said. “I’m about to launch an album that finally represents who I truly am. How do I embrace this new chapter in my life?”

Just days prior to the shoot, Demi’s great-grandfather Buddy Moore passed away aged 83.

She told the magazine that she was inspired to live in the moment:

I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free. What if we do a photo shoot where it’s totally raw?

Super-sexy, but no makeup, no fancy lighting, no retouching, and no clothing. Let’s do it here, let’s do it now.”

Demi, who has been open about her previous struggles with depression, eating disorders and addiction; explained that she would never have imagined getting to a point where she felt comfortable enough to do a nude shoot.

“It’s empowering, and it shows other women that you can get to a place where you can overcome the obstacles of body-image issues, and you can feel comfortable and confident in your skin.”

Ecclesine explained that Demi had very limited experience posing nude before and when she arrived at the shoot, at midnight emotionally and physically exhausted, he felt he “had to be respectful of that and tread lightly.”

"When I left her at three in the morning, she gave me a quick hug and thanked me for making her feel pretty. I thanked her for her confidence," he concluded.

Red carpet goddess Blake Lively has shared some style tips for turning heads at super-glam bashes such as Cannes.

The Gossip Girl actress will only wear clothes she feels confident in when she has a big event to go to because she finds posing for the cameras nerve-wracking.

She said, ”Being on the red carpet tends to be stressful because there are a million cameras and some are looking for that embarrassing photo.

”So my advice is always feel comfortable in what you’re wearing – and that includes your clothes, your shoes, your make-up. That is what will make you feel the most confident.

”Of course, I don’t mean comfortable like sweats and Uggs.”

Blake loves getting glamorous in floor-length gowns and prefers having her hair down in loose waves.

The 26-year-old actress said, ”Honestly, though, I enjoy getting ready for big events – it’s like grown-up dress-up.

”Often you see people on the red carpet with tight up-dos, but that makes me feel stiff. For me, effortless hair is much more romantic and lived in.”

We hear you Blake!

You might think you’re choosing a certain shade of lipstick to co-ordinate it with your outfit, but your choice of lipstick has more to do with your personality than it does with your clothes – for the most part anyway.

Bright and Red
If you find yourself always going for red shades it means you’re a passionate gal who isn’t afraid to draw attention to your lips.

Black
As dark as night, women who like black lipstick are generally less approachable. People who don’t know you might even find you intimidating.

Clear and nude
You’re a confident gal with a cool and calm personality. With nude lovers, what you see is what you get.

Feeling pink
Pink lovers are usually sweet and have a kind heart.

Brown and mauves
If you’re a fan of deep mauves and browns, it means you like to take a slightly different path. You’re also no stranger to adventures.
