So-called “KFC heiress” Kaila Methven has taken part in a daring photo shoot in a mission to create “something artistic and empowering”.
The 26-year-old’s South African grandfather, Stanley Methven, founded a company called Rainbow Chicken Unlimited, which once supplied 90 per cent of KFC’s poultry.
The Methven family became the third richest family in South Africa, although they have no current ties to the fast food giant. Despite Mr Methven having sold the company back in 1991, Ms Methven describes herself as a “KFC heiress” on her website.
Ms Methven has just posed nude for the latest edition of JMG Lifestyle magazine, which is touted as a “millennials’ luxury and lifestyle” publication. She wore nothing but diamonds worth $US10 million ($A14 million) and a Versace crown, worth $US3 million ($A4.2 million).
“For the shoot, I had to be naked in front of about 20 people, which was a little scary at first, but it really wasn’t about nudity for me, this was about creating something artistic and empowering with a woman’s body,” she said.
“I’m proud to be a woman, and JMG Lifestyle magazine uplifts women. They are about representing strong, modern day women. I wanted to create a shoot that is strong and fearless and powerful.
