Jennifer Lawrence channeled her best Nastassja Kinski when she posed nude for the March issue of Vanity Fair, wearing nothing but a boa constrictor.
The Patrick Demarchelier photo shoot took place back in July at a private residence in the Hollywood Hills.
“Lawrence only became uncomfortable when the snake took a fancy to her neck,” Vanity Fair‘s West Coast editor Krista Smith said. “Then the shoot was over and Mr. Boa went back into his box.”
‘Mr. Boa’ is a large Colombian, red-tailed boa constrictor and being wrapped up in the snake would seem a daunting proposition to most folks, but not to Jennifer Lawrence.
“Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality, and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off,” said Fashion and Style director for Vanity Fair, Jessica Diehl.
Jennifer Lawrence's photo is a reboot of a 1981 classic Vogue cover of model/actress Nastassja Kinski and a tribute to the late photographer Richard Avedon.
