It's the shoot that has already set tongues wagging on social media and it's easy to see why: Victoria's Secret Angel Erin Heatherton posing stark naked with only luxury luggage pieces from names such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci to conceal her modesty, bronzed limbs gleaming and sun-kissed hair gently tousled.
Securing the American stunner, who once dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio, comes as a major coup for WA's Box Magazine, which partnered with acclaimed Perth *-raised photographer turned international star Russell James for the exclusive shoot.
Captured in New York in November, the racy images will take over nine pages of Box Magazine's Autumn/Winter issue for a travel-themed special and include designer suitcases and bags from labels including Giorgio Armani, Montblanc and Mulberry.
But even before the title hits stands next month, the shoot has already created a buzz after one of the photos was released on social media depicting 25-year-old Heatherton posing naked with a stack of Louis Vuitton luggage.Box editor-in-chief Troy Barbagallo said he was thrilled with the opportunity to work with both Heatherton and James on the feature.
"Russell is one of the world's top photographers and it goes without saying that he is supremely talented," Barbagallo said.
"And Erin is a real supermodel, fast becoming a household name for her work with Victoria's Secret. Getting talent of their calibre to shoot exclusively for Box on a brief we are so passionate about is incredible, and we're ecstatic to be able to share this feature with our readers."
