“There have been times in my life when I haven’t felt confident, times when I‘ve been like, ‘I don’t like that part of my body,’" she says. "But I’m turning 30 in December and I’m probably more confident than ever. Every year that I get older I become more confident.”

Anna admits she’s never done anything drastic to slim down and only ever gone on one diet – “a juice diet; I did it for about a day”.

Instead, she prefers to eat well and exercise regularly to stay in shape.

Pump classes and working out with chiropractor and personal trainer Tim are her favourite form of exercise, with the 29-year-old notching up her first half marathon earlier this year.

For Anna, stripping down was something she thought twice about, but admits she felt like she needed to do in order to celebrate her shape.

"Someone once said I had a positive energy and I've held onto that - that's something I love to hear more than, 'You look great'," she says.

Anna isn't the only celeb baring all, with former Miss World Australia Erin Holland also going nude in the name of empowering women.

Although she lives a healthy lifestyle, the model reveals she's given up alcohol and been forced to make "big life changes to look after myself as a result of working in this industry".

"I find that the more I stress about my eating, the worse it is for me," she explains. "Instead, I consistently try to make good healthy choices and hit the gym three to five times a week - a bit of yoga, spin or running for my cardio, and also some weights."

While we're more used to seeing her in chef's whites, ex-Masterchef star Poh Ling Yeow admits shedding her clothes appealed to her artistic side.

After finally coming to terms with her shape at the age of 33, the 42-year-old celebrity chef says her active lifestyle running around the kitchen sees her keep fit, as well as African dancing.

"[It's] the best exercise I've ever done - it's live drumming and really vigorous exercise," she tells Women's Health.
