New Zealand PM John Key said he supported his 20-year-old's decision to strip for a photoshoot, wherein she posed in the buff with food

Posing nude could land any young daughter in trouble with her parents. More so, when your father happens to be a world leader. But not for Stephanie Key, the 20-year-old daughter of New Zealand PM John Key.

Lovin’ it: Stephanie Key, the 20-year-old art student, posed with McDonald’s burgers covering her breasts. The pictures are for a Paris exhibition

The 20-year-old who is studying at a prestigious Paris arts school has created astonishing self-portraits of herself posing topless with a cherry in her mouth while holding a gun in one hand.

In another, she can be seen lying down with McDonald’s burgers covering her breasts.

In another she poses naked with sushi on her breasts and an octopus covering her lower body.

However, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key has brushed off comments that his daughter’s nude self portraits are ‘bizarre’ and ‘provocative’, saying he is ‘really proud’ of her.

Key said he knew his daughter was working on the self portraits, and said he was not surprised by the images.

“I told her to eat her food not play with it. But oh well she’s got sushi all over her,” he joked.

Key said his daughter was ‘doing incredibly well’, and that the images were part of the brief for the work that she was doing at school in Paris.

He said that he and his family were ‘really proud of her’. 

former Australian PM Gillard’s stepdaughter’s nude photoshoot
In September 2010, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard's stepdaughter had appeared in a raunchy photoshoot wearing only a bikini and the Australian flag. The New York-based stylist Staci Child (31), who is the daughter of Gillard's partner Tim Mathieson, posed for Zoo Weekly magazine and says her father loved the photos. “I think Julia will think it's a very Australian thing to do,” she added. The photoshoot created quite a controversy Down Under as many thought the photograph was disrespectful to the national flag. RSL State President David McLachlan said the Australian flag should be respected.
