The GOP’s Nearly Naked Family
Posted at 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 14, 2012
Michigan Rep. Fred Upton’s niece is the latest GOP family member to get nearly naked for the camera.
Kate Upton, 19, leaves very little to the imagination in her Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover debut. She is also nearly naked in the pages of Esquire magazine’s March issue.
Upton is not the first Republican relation to bare a whole lot for the camera. Florida Rep. Tom Rooney’s cousin, Rooney Mara, got good and naked for her role as Lisbeth Salander in the Hollywood version of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” She also made quite the splash when proofs of the topless poster promoting the film hit the Internet.
Lauren Bush-Lauren, President George W. Bush’s niece, has also been caught showing some skin. Though, to be fair, Bush-Lauren is a model who routinely makes the fashion world’s best-dressed lists.
None of the fashion shoots HOH has unearthed have been especially risqué.
In fact, New York Magazine officially labeled this Republican relation a “good girl.”
Nonetheless, earlier this year tabloids published flattering pictures of Bush-Lauren while she was in Jamaica with her husband, David, son of fashion designer Ralph Lauren. The newlyweds were vacationing with Ralph Lauren, Paul McCartney and McCartney’s new wife, Nancy.
Bush-Lauren, who was named PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2003, was pictured wearing a tasteful (and comparatively prudish) blue polka dot bikini.
None of the GOP nieces, though, has topped former first daughter Patti Davis, the late President Ronald Reagan’s kid. Davis has posed nude not once, but twice.
Her first stint was taking it off for Playboy in 1994. She was 42. In May 2011, Davis, 58, posed nude once again for More magazine.
