However, Kim Kardashiana��s latest photoshoot grabbed attention, with admiration from her fans and criticism from some like Glee star Naya Rivera.

    Known for her outrageous image, Miley Cyrus has never shied away from skimpy clothes. In her photoshoot in September for V magazine, she posed fully naked with the top half of her body completely uncovered. The editorial feature was shot by well-known designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld. Cyrus, who earlier released an artwork collaboration with American designer Jeremy Scott at the New York Fashion Week, explained, a�?I know that Ia��m not a pop pop dumb dumb. Ia��m a lot more than someone who just shakes her ass onstage.a�?

    Rihanna1Stripped down
    After posing nude for the cover photo of Lui Magazine in April this year, Rihanna, who is famous for her fashion sense, did it again. The songstress is seen stripping down for the December issue of Elle magazine, in which she is wearing nothing but a Yeprem necklace. The 26-year-old Diamonds singer also revealed in the issue that if she wasna��t a pop star she would be a wife and claims that any man that tells her what to do is sexy. Rihannaa��s makeup remained soft for the shot and her hair was pulled back.

    Scout Willis1Oppose-stagram
    This June, Scout Willis shared topless photos of herself walking down the street in New Yorka��s East Village to protest against Instagrama��s nudity policy. The 22-year-old resorted to the act when her Instagram account was deleted after she posted a photo of herself in a sheer shirt without a bra. Willis later explained, a�?What I am arguing for is a womana��s right to choose how she represents her body a�� and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body.a�?

    Keira Knightley4Topless protest
    Keira Knightley, who had a public battle with Photoshop in 2004, when her chest was digitally enlarged for the poster of King Arthur, posed topless in Interview this August. She recently came out and said that she did this so that people could see what she really looked like. a�?Ia��ve had my body manipulated so many times for so many different reasons, whether ita��s paparazzi or for film posters. That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said. a�?OK, Ia��m fine doing the topless shot as long as you dona��t make them any bigger or retouch.a�� Because it does feel important to say it really doesna��t matter what shape you are,a�? the Imitation Game actress said.

        So this is the Year of the Selfie, the dictionarya��s most popular new word, (which, according to the Oxford version, means a self-portrait taken with a hand held smartphone and shared in social media. As if you didna��t know!). On social media a�� Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and every form of self-expression in between, ita��s all about that photo you take of yourself a�� with your favourite film star, your yummiest holiday food, your best dress, your bestie, your most fun party last week… well, you get the drift. A Cambridge University psychology lecturer called the selfie habit a�?the thrill of narcissism, uncensored by reflection or judgment…leading to impulsive self-promotion.a�? Really? Then we are a troubled world.
        SAFRICA-MANDELA-MEMORIALAnyway, why shouldna��t one join the gang? Barack Obama has, so has Justin Beiber. Not to mention Narendra Modi, Miley Cyrus (worlda��s most prolific selfie taking celeb), Paris Hilton, Pope Francis and the Mona Lisa (I kid you not!). No surprises that Kim Kardashiana��s #butt #selfie was one of the most popular pics on the Internet until she decided to a�?break ita�� with her #nudies. And of course therea��s Ellen DeGeneresa�� famous multi-celebrity selfie taken at the Oscars earlier this year a�� the most retweeted photograph ever. Therea��s even a Selfie TV show and a somewhat banal Selfie pop song by that name (with a video featuring David Hasselhoff, Snoop Dogg and Darth Vader!). At any given time, on your social media timelines, there is bound to be more than a few selfies.
        Pope FrancisAccording to research, 44 per cent of selfies are taken during holidays and 25 per cent of holiday selfie takers do so even before their flight takes off. For serial selfie addicts, Google provides tips on how to take the perfectly flattering holiday selfie. (Dona��t pout or smoulder unless youa��re trying to be a�?ironica��)
        Even ace photographer Waseem Khana��s Facebook profile features him in selfie mode. He has been shooting selfies even before it was christened a�?selfiea��, he says. a�?Leta��s face it a�� wea��ve always wanted to be in every shot, but until now one person had to be left out a�� the one taking the shot. The selfie takes care of that. Now with fancy gadgets and gadget-savvy people, things are becoming easier. Ita��s not a fad thata��s going away soon.a�?
        Taking a perfect selfie is quite an art form, Waseem agrees. He has seen some a�?unbelievablea�� selfies, he says. a�?A model in New York sends me the most amazing selfies a�� perfect makeup, clothes and angle a�� ita��s a joy to see them.a�? Meanwhile he has a few tips for serial selfie takers: a�?Think before you shoot. Find a flattering angle, the right lighting, and remember the higher or closer you hold your camera to shoot, the more stretched or wide your face will look.a�?
        Ita��s all about selfie-expression in the digital age after all.
