In this beauty pageant no one wants to save the world or help the environment, and there’s no mention of feeding starving children. The judges are on a quest for women who shine when nude, ultimately looking to crown just one Miss Nude Australia. This behind-the-scenes look at Australia’s longest running and most politically incorrect beauty pageant uncovers what it takes to become Miss Nude Australia. For the 18th year in succession, Madame Josephine, drag artiste and lipstick-clad host, will announce the competitors to a full house at The Crazy Horse Revue nightclub in Adelaide. The girls strut their stuff along the runway using everything at their disposal; a flamboyant or cheeky outfit to slowly peel away, a pair of dancing poles for minor acrobats and, of course, their perfectly-sculpted physiques. In a modern society based on sexual equality, this competition seems out of place, sexist and sleazy. But in recent years, the competition has flourished, with a constant flow of young and beautiful girls, keen to compete for the prize of Miss Nude Australia. These ladies enter the Pageant with all the seriousness of a fully clothed Miss Universe title. Best Undressed follows, with humour and without judgement, the spectacle that is Miss Nude Australia; an event that brings its competitors together and challenges their resolve, self esteem and creativity, as they embark on a quest for an unusual kind of fame.
