Gravure models are Japanese models who primarily pose in bikinis, leotards, and other provocative clothing for photo spreads in magazines and photobooks aimed largely at men.

here are some pics of them:
horikita maki- there are many more revealing than this


ayase haruka- she's like f-cup or somethin'


aragaki yui


erika sawajiri


erika toda


i personally think that it was pretty discouraging coz they are so young..and most of them are my fave actresses..
so what do u guys think?

At first I was shocked because their image is suppose to be that of innocent girls.
Then I found out even 16 yrs old idols do this.

actually some of these pics were done after they became famous too.
no need to be surprise many starlets in japan have tooken the whole gravure thing but if you google them and in there website its not posted that under there name its gravure model its different. I guess the gravure pics was just some gig.

I don't really care to be honest, it's their life, if they choose to do that kind of modelling, leave them to it. I like them for their acting, so they can do whatever they want really, it doesn't bother me.

I must say though, those high waisted bikini bottoms are NOT flattering on Erika Toda.

LOL..I know, it's like making her look like she has a flat ass or something...it's granny bikini...anyways..it's part of showbiz and entertainment..celebs here does it also..Some even go bare nude (Britney Spears, Christina A., Jennifer Aniston, ect)..I don't see a problem with it..but I must say, Ayase has a freakin large boobs. After I saw some of her pics, I was really suprised. It look too big and heavy for her...

Well, there are a lot of them who do happen to do this. I think at this level it's acceptable. Just as long as they don't turn into Kato Ai and her recent photobook... (shivers)

Many of my favorite actresses are indeed gravure models. However, even if they do happen to pose in bikinis, it doesn't mean that they're bad actresses, no? The only think I can't stand is if they get those nasty sex tapes and Lindsey-Lohan or Paris-hilton type photos. Now that is nasty.
