Top Model’s Jael goes naked at Burning Man

In late July, Top Model 8 contestant Jael Strauss sued over the release of revealing photos she’d taken. But she must not be all that concerned about people seeing her naked, as she wandered around naked in public a month later, in late August.

Jael was photographed nude at Burning Man, wearing simply Ugg boots and a hula hoop. She “was spotted at this year’s Burning Man Festival by John F., the boyfriend of the absolutely amazing [actress] April Winchell,” according to the blog FourFour, which first published the photos.

Those photos now join the fully nude pictures that she sued over. Her lawsuit said those photos “damaged [Strauss] in the beginning of her entertainment career and caused severe damage to her public image.”

OMG, she’s naked: Jael [omg blog]
