Amanda Beard is world-class swimmer who may be known as much for her looks as for her talent in the water. You can see why, as she was...

A major uproar broke out this week after Interview Magazine published a picture of Kendall Jenner topless.

But let's be honest: this reality star wasn't the first famous female to ditch her shirt for a national magazine spread... or the second... or the third... or the fourth...

You get the idea.

Kendall is only 18, of course, yet plenty of celebrities have gone half-birthday suit style in order to leave their racy mark on readers.

Some might be obvious (hi, Miley Cyrus!), some might be surprising (really, Celine Dion?!?) and some might be cast members on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

So sit back, try to control your drool and click through 43 steamy images of well-known women going topless in various publications:

Amanda Beard has proven that she's as fast on land as she is in water.

The seven-time Olympic medalist swimmer evaded paparazzi often enough in the last few weeks to get knocked up and married with almost no one finding out.

Until now.

Beard told People that she's now married to photographer Sacha Brown, whose child she's been carrying for almost 6 months now.

"It was absolutely perfect," Beard said of her May 1 wedding on Wakatobi, an archipelago in the Banda Sea off southeastern Indonesia. "It was stress-free, and super low-key."

The couple exchanged vows in a sunset ceremony on a private beach. They also followed local custom, as bride and groom adhered to Muslim tradition and covered most of their bodies for the event.

Beard donned a black, long-sleeved tunic, a sarong and a white veil; while Brown also wore a sarong a hat and a sword.

Unlike everyone else in the world, Sacha Brown won't need to search the Internet to find Amanda Beard nude.

He can just roll over in bed.

The Olympic swimmer admitted to Us Weekly that she and the professional photographer are engaged.

"We got engaged on Christmas day," Beard said. "It was really simple. We decided to do Christmas by ourselves in our house in Tuscon. He had a little Tiffany's box, and it was hidden in this Santa statue that we had - his little sack - and it was perfect."

A small wedding is planned for April.

Remember those rumors about Michael Phelps seeing Amanda Beard naked earlier this year, when everyone was wondering who he was dating?

No? Was that just us?

Well, they weren't true in case. The two Olympians were never an item. But Amanda Beard is quick to defend her friend Phelps just the same as he's gotten criticized for becoming a fixture in Las Vegas and dating Caroline Pal.

Beard admits that it's "definitely weird" to see Michael Phelps becoming a celebrity gossip mainstay, but she thinks he should be cut some slack.

Pre-Caz, Michael Phelps did some platonic palling around with Amanda Beard.

"A swimmer's life is extremely boring," Beard lamented to E! Online at yesterday evening's opening of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.

"We swim and we're in the pool all day long. I know he trains his butt off, so I know it feels good for him to let loose and have a drink - and to have ladies underneath his arms. It's good for him."

Watch out, Caz Pal. She said ladies - plural!

Amanda Beard is confident Michael will rein it in once he starts training again: "He has a really, really, really intense coach who's very strict."

Hopefully not too strict. We need him to win eight more golds in 2012, but right now, we need him to generate gossip! He's almost as prolific at this as he is in the pool. Check out our gallery of Michael Phelps pictures and see!

Thank you to all the readers who replied to our previous poll, asking whether you'd rather sleep with Michael Phelps or Mark Spitz. If you haven't already, go vote now!

Then, focus on the similarly pressing question below.

Amanda Beard and Leryn Franco are two Olympic athletes known more for their looks than their accomplishments in the pool or on the field. Granted, Beard is a gold medalist - but as soon as she posed for Playboy, she became a cover girl before a swimmer in most people's minds.

Franco is a very bad javelin thrower, at least by Olympic standards. She finished second to last in this year's competition.

Take a look at the topless photos of each and let us know: Who would you rather, well, you know...

Michael Phelps is not seeing Amanda Beard nude.

At least not more than anyone who hasn't bought that swimmer's Playboy issue.

With rumors swirling about these Olympians' activities out of the pool, Beard joked around with 93.7 KRQ Tucson's Johnjay and Rich in the Morning yesterday. Asked to classify her relationship with Phelps, Beard said:

"I am not dating Michael Phelps," adding, "Come on, I have really good taste."

Now, though, Beard is catching flak for her flippancy. She's been forced to clarify her remarks to a sensitive public:

"Everyone who knows me knows I can be a jokester, but I guess I took it too far," the four-time Olympian said. "I never meant to say anything rude about Michael. I am 100-percent sorry for what I said. I take full responsibility for it."

With that out of the way, let us know who you'd sleep with first: Michael Phelps or Mark Spitz?

Americans that tune in to the Olympics this month won't see Amanda Beard swimming for her country. The beautiful athlete failed to quality in any events.

But fans can still see Beard playing a prominent role in Beiing, as her new, naked ad for PETA debuts there today.

“Seeing animals slaughtered to be worn as fashion is awful to me, so I’m definitely against wearing fur … I’d much rather go naked than ever put a dead animal on my body,” it reads.

You can now see Amanda Beard nude in Playboy and in defense of animals.

Considering the example Beard set for other athletes to bare in all in Playboy - such as Ashley Harkleroad - does this mean we'll see other sports stars come out against fur in the near future?

Time shall tell.

Sacha Brown is one lucky, random celebrity boyfriend.

While the rest of us drool over mere pictures of Amanda Beard nude in Playboy, Brown gets to go home and see that monument to beauty every night.

He probably gets to touch her, too.

Everyone else, meanwhile? We're left ogling the following pictures of Amanda Beard in a bikini. Alongside Sacha Brown, of course. Damn him.

Wanna see Amanda Beard nude? Check out a recent issue of Playboy.

Kylie Jenner Fashion

Wanna see Tara Reid nude? Buy her a couple drinks on any Tuesday night.

But if you wanna see these two famous women involved in a celebrity fashion face-off, look no further. The Hollywood Gossip is your hook up!

Beard, an Olympic Gold Medalist who's actually known for positive athletic exploits (unlike Michael Vick) grabbed headlines last month when she posed naked for Hugh Hefner's well-known publication. She's lovely and talented.

Reid, a train wreck of an actress, is known largely for botched plastic surgery and a boob job that makes the work done on Ashlee Simpson look perfect. She's ugly and usually drunk.

So this isn't the most difficult match-up we've ever posted. Unlike the time we pitted Stacy Keibler against Kelly Clarkson in a battle of beauty, it should be obvious who wore the dress above better.

But if you want a real brain teaser, try this question on for size: Who looks better in the buff: Beard nude or Eva Longoria nude?
