(Newser) – You might not expect to see 62-year-old Susan Sarandon in a group of starlets bringing the sexy back, but she, along with Kate Hudson, Denise Richards and others, is baring much for celebrated photographer Timothy White’s Hollywood Pinups, a coffee-table book recreating the risqué look of the 1940s. Sarandon is clad in only a feather boa and some fishnets, the Daily Mail notes.

All the proceeds from the book go to the charity Oxfam, which may have helped convince Sarandon to do it. It also couldn’t hurt that White has worked with—and airbrushed—her before. The photographer says the pics aren’t sleazy, and that pinup girls aren’t being objectified. “To me, she is much more than a beautiful image,” says White. “She is an empowered woman.”
