‘America’s Next Top Model’ Whitney Thompson and Chenese Lewis Pose for NOH8 Campaign

Well, they’re at it again.

America’s Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson and our own Chenese Lewis—who last month raised eyebrows by posing nude together for the Hollywood Chapter of the National Organization for Women’s Fifth Annual Love Your Body Day—are using their star power for another good cause.

Earlier this month, the dynamic duo slipped into celebrity photog Adam Bouska‘s L.A. studio to shoot a series of pics for his NOH8 (pronounced “No Hate”) campaign, a grassroots movement supporting same-sex marriage in the state of California.

What you see here is an exclusive peek at Whitney (r.) and Chenese’s twist on the two-year-old effort. That by painting NOH8 on their bods as well as on their faces.

But Chenese Lewis, host of our ever-poplar PLUS Model Radio, has taken that expression to a whole new level.

As part of her promotional efforts for the National Organization for Women’s Fifth Annual Love Your Body Day—which says “no” to advertisements and images of women that are harmful, offensive, disrespectful and demeaning—Chenese has posed in the buff with Whitney Thompson.

CAPTIONS: "Our picture looks like a photoshoot from ‘America's Next Top Model,'" says Chenese (left) of Whitney (right). "She makes loving your body fierce!"

"Our picture looks like a shoot from ‘America's Next Top Model,'" Chenese (l) says of her headline-making spread with Whitney (r). "She makes loving your body fierce!"

Both models will help raise awareness for organizations that help individuals with eating disorders—Whitney as an ambassador for the National Eating Disorder Association and Chenese as an ambassador for the Binge Eating Disorder Association.

During Whitney’s most recent PLUS Model Radio appearance, she Continue reading
