Beautiful Academy Award-winning actress  Taraji P. Henson has peeled off every stitch of clothing for another major magazine photo spread. She joins Maria Menounos, Debra Messing, Leslie Bibb and Morena Baccarin in a sizzling and sensual but tasteful spread for Allure magazine, who need to seriously consider holding “How to Mack” classes for men, because they seem to always get so many beautiful women to take their clothes off.

When done tastefully, most people agree that they are stunning and illuminates these women’s (and sometimes men’s) nearly flawless and enviable hourglass physiques.

And with that, let’s take a look at the best and worst celebrity nude photo opps.
