Anja Rubik: 'Don't fear nudity'
Anja Rubik has told people not to "fear the nipple" after getting kicked off Instagram for sharing topless photos.
The model has posed for the likes of Givenchy and Christian Dior and doesn't shy away from baring some skin on shoots.
However, it seems her racy snaps have got her into trouble with the picture-sharing website.
"I have been kicked of Instagram for inappropriate posting.. Here is my new account," she informed Twitter followers, adding: "Dear Instagram and to all followers: "DON'T FEAR THE NIPPLE"!!!!!!!!!!!!"
She almost immediately deleted the latter post.
One particularly daring moment in Anja's career saw her pose topless for the French edition of Vogue with a serpent wrapped around her neck.
Whereas the fashion world promoted the image as art, similar portraits seem to have broken Instagram guidelines.
Photographer Katja Rahlwes, who is known for depicting female empowerment via strong pictures of women has taken daring snaps of Anja, with one showing the 29-year-old totally naked, holding a small dog to cover her modesty.
The model is outraged anyone could take these kinds of pictures the wrong way.
"It happened.. they kicked me off Instagram..for posting a topless image...what ridiculous world we live in!" she fumed.
"Specially that @katjarahlwes image was beautiful and not at all vulgar! The world is turning upside down! (sic)"
