In the detailed note, she wrote: "The kids came up with a concept, I agreed to be their clothes horse, and now I must confess I had a blast!
"Fashion can be intimidating and let’s be honest, it’s usually geared towards being ‘sexy’. That’s certainly been my experience of it. I’ve heard the words “diva”, “bombshell” and “glamour” enough to never need to hear them again in my life!
"So now, I focus on fun. Sexy is great and you bet I can still deliver, but fashion should also be light, goofy, comfy and experimental, don’t you think? In fact, let’s call this look scarecrow chic! (winking face emoticon)
"This entire test shoot was conceptualised and executed by a vibrant team of young technicians. Thank you kids for the good times!"
The actor's post garnered positive comments with many thanking her for breaking stereotypes and being an inspiration.
