Not too long ago, on the pages of facebook, a magazine photo of a Myanmar model woman captured the interests of many. The said photo came from a lifestyle magazine called “POSH”. This magazine’s cover photo portrayed Myanmar model J Naw topless, very attractively striking the pose of a boxing champion about to attack.

Today, she tells Ayeyarwaddy Magazine that it was taken for POSH Magazine Thailand. She also points out that other models like Awn Seng have shot only for POSH Magazine Myanmar. But her photo shoot was for the international POSH. She was chosen as the representative for Myanmar. Models representing other countries like Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand also participated in the photo shoot. Currently, the magazine hasn’t been released yet. She promises that there will be tons of photos to come. This photo we have seen so far is just their opening photo. Just at the end of March, there was a controversy when POSH Magazine Myanmar came out with a cover photo showcasing Myanmar Model Awn Seng naked and paired up with a foreign male model. Audiences struck up some noise in criticism over this.

Also, during this past Thingyan, Posh Magazine featured “Thingyan Fashion” with photos of male and female models. J Naw was also included in this photo. However, she now says she does not want to go into detail about this photo. She acknowledges that her fans may have a small problem. They want her to compete professionally as a beauty contestant (Miss). Her path in profession is as a runway and photo model. She wants to make a breakthrough as a professional model. In the above-mentioned Thingyan photo, people have criticized that she was not wearing a bra. In fact she was wearing a clear silicone bra. However, she faced criticism from people who said a person who was to become a “Miss” should not be dressing in this way. In this country, she knows it is very hard to accept this kind of thing. However, there have also been some who praised her professionalism. She says she is not angry with her critics because she knows they are talking in terms of Myanmar Culture.

And now she also has something to say to the people who are criticizing her new provocative POSH Magazine Thailand photo shoot. First of all, from the time she got an invitation to shoot for the magazine, there was an understanding that it was for international release, not for Myanmar. Therefore, she had to fit in with the international theme here. While attempting to break into an international audience, she has to do the same as what everyone else in the photo shoot were doing. If she refused, there would always be someone ready to take her place. Therefore, when there was an opportunity, she had to run and grab it. She also stresses that in this cover photo, she was not truly topless. She was just wearing a clear silicone bra again. Model J Naw entered a beauty contest for the first time in Miss Universe Myanmar 2014. She has also been awarded with the title “Miss Huawai”.
