Lily Cole embraces socks... and nothing else
In a racy shoot for Frances Playboy magazine, Marks & Spencer model Lily Cole has used socks to a distinct advantage by enhancing the impact of her front cover shot.

The supermodel cuddled a giant teddy bear in the feature, which was noted as taking inspiration from the cover of French musician Serge Gainsborough's 1971 album Histoire de Melody Nelson, except that jeans were traded for white hosiery.

Explaining the reasons as to why she did the photoshoot for the famous magazine in just her socks, Lily said: "Nudity has always existed in art, and I think that, given the right conditions, it doesn't necessarily "debase" any more than it celebrates or represents the human body."

It was reported today that 20-year-old Lily was starting a course at Cambridge University in history of art.
