In the September issue, Marie Claire launches its 2018 #DearBody New Naked campaign, in partnership with American Swiss. This year, the team is proud to present the New Naked. Nakedness is about finding power in vulnerability, transparency and truth. This year we collaborated with celebrities, industry creatives and influencers who, through beautiful images shot by photographer Niquita Bento, advocate for body positivity and self-worth, both as individuals and within their chosen fields.

We also asked each of the 15 women featured in the issue to write a letter to their body; the powerful words extracted from these letters – determined, full of life, joyful, iconic, strong, perfect, confident, beautiful – highlight their journey to self-love and embracing who they are.
