Penn, 22, was photographed by Tony Duran in a series of provocative pictures, including the fully nude cover shot. Considering she’s the daughter of A-list actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright, it’s no surprise the model has movie-star good looks.
Penn reportedly turned down a $150,000 offer to pose for Playboy in March. So what convinced her to go naked this time around?
Duran’s reputable body of work, she explained in a statement.
“I knew his photography from before I was asked to shoot and really admired him as an artist,” she said. “I have always loved his black-and-white nudes, they were always so tastefully done and, more specifically, showed that certain elegant yet strong beauty that I think all women embody.”
Penn was recently styled – in clothes – by George Kotsiopolous for a Gap campaign.
