4 Tips for Posing Nearly Nude from 'America's Next Top Model'


ET went behind the scenes of America's Next Top Modelas the contestants competed in a nearly nude photo shoot challenge. The art to posing semi-nude is to reveal just enough, but not too much, coach J. Alexander explained.

Here are four tips ET learned at the shoot:

1. Let it all hang out. If you got it flaunt it.

"Just know where to hide the candy," Alexander told us. "There's things you have to do to not let it be shown."

2. Own it. Confidence goes a long way. If the models don't look like they're enjoying the shoot, the fans aren't going to enjoy the pictures.

3. Sure, it's supposed to be fun, but it's still work.

"You have to bring your energy and just think this is something that is very serious and we're going to take it seriously," said Alexander.

4. Try some creative covering. You can't just cover your body with your hands like you jumped out of the shower without a towel.

"Just be sexy about it," Alexander said.
