not to upset anyone here ,but do you have to take your clothes off or half off to win this contest? It seems to me that most of the high ratings go to the pics with less clothing. But who knows there are all types of models right? Myself I do more fashion modeling than others. Best wishes.

The answer to your question is no. But keep in mind, the name of this site isn't Fashion 1. Best of luck to you.

It seems to be that way. To me, Glamour means something else...a look, a feature, a style...but I get this overpowering feeling that the word "Glamour" now means 'get naked'. I even had a thread going on this once a while back.

Nudity and glamour go hand in hand, to me almost any young lady can take her clothes off and be sexy and glamorous. The art to glamour is to be sexy and beautiful with clothes on.

Sounds like that was a good thread. Maybe we could get that going again.

It's a little discouraging to me to hear that the nude photos would have an advantage over the non-nudes. When I hear the word "glamour", I don't even think of nudity. I thought glamour had to do more with the overall style, mood, and feel of a photograph (hair, lighting, makeup, poses, expressions, etc. all play a factor). There are glamourous nudes and glamourous non-nudes, as well as unglamorous nudes and unglamorous non-nudes. So I would think that glamour and nudity are completely independent of each other.

That being said, part of glamour is being "edgy", and maybe some feel that to be edgy, it's got to be nude. Or perhaps it's easier to be edgy by being nude: nudity offends so many while being beautiful to so many that nudity alone is almost always edgy. On the other hand, perhaps it's more difficult: without clothing as an aid, you've got to accomplish the same thing with only the lighting, model's expression, etc.

All I know is that I've seen many "glamourous" shots around here, and some were nude, and some were not.

Just some thoughts.

I'd hate to dredge it up again as I think it was well covered by the comments. I came away from it with a little less confusion than I had to start with but still a good amount of residual confusion anyways. No one could give me a definitive answer on what "Glamour" meant and what (photographically) the constituent aspects were. However you've hit in on the head that there are lots of great clothed Glamour shots as well as unclothed ones. And of course there's a lot of garbage, again clothed and unclothed.

I remember once asking the web owners of *** to give some direction to their classifications. The response I got back from them was less than helpful. Even here there seems to be confusion as to what constitutes Nude and otherwise (I think that Implied is not Nude). I mean what if I were to post an image of a woman fully clothed but with one breast exposed. Is that Nude?

There's a lot of hew and cry about Nudity and Governmental interference in the States with what can and cannot be posted on a website. If this is an attack on Obsenitiy then I would suggest that there is GREATER obsenities that we should be more concerned with...the homeless, the mentally challenged, the old, the infirm, the senseless killing of our children by other children, the 'Enrons' of this world, the vast expanse between the Rich and the Poor...and the proliferation of the Gun culture. THOSE are FAR more obscene than any naked woman we might see here on G1.

I see that you've gotten many responses, and honestly I haven't read them yet, but I thought I'd throw out an answer anyhow. Nudes aren't allowed in the contest (which means no visible nips or cookies). Implied nudes are apparently acceptable as long as no naughty parts are showing. In previous contests, nudes were allowed, and those were the images that always won. The playing field has been leveled a bit with the changes.

As far as your preference to fasion modeling, there are some here that are also fashion models, however, this is a "glamour" forum (hence the name). So.... you are obviously going to find more glamour entries than anything else. I'm entered and wearing a bra and jean jacket. It's not exactly what I would call risque, as I have bikinis that show off more than that bra.

Glamour is a subjective style, but any way you look at it, this remains a glamour focused site and a glamour focused contest.

thanks so much for all the comments but to those of you who said there are no nude photos allowed i said half off. The point I was trying to make is the more semi nude shots were getting more points. but its only a contest anyway!
