Miss Naked Beauty is a search for a woman who embodies the confidence, sex appeal, spirit, brains and true natural beauty of a modern-day Eve.
The show sets out to challenge conventional notions of what is "beautiful" by turning the traditional beauty contest on its head. The winner of the competition has to possess natural beauty, and must also have the brains and balls to tackle some of the uglier sides of the industry.
The winner will win the title and also has a job to do. She'll write a regular magazine column to expose the sinister side of beauty, and promote the natural beauty message.
She'll also become the face of a new model agency with a fresh twist on the typical, stick-thin catwalk clothes horse. Plus, she'll report back to Gok Wan in the next series of How to Look Good Naked with her discoveries during her year on the job.
Under the watchful eye of mentors Gok Wan and Myleene Klass the chosen few with real potential to become Miss Naked Beauty will undergo a series of “make-under” missions.
The weekly challenges will send the girls on personal journeys to confront the established perceptions of beauty - and prove that they have the skills and attitude to be a bona fide natural beauty campaigner.
A judging panel of industry insiders whittle down the girls until there is only one left. In true beauty-queen style, the women must fight to keep themselves in the competition, proving their credibility to become Miss Naked Beauty 2008.
