One-Handed Model: Inspiring or Just Hot?

We're bombarded with photos of beautiful women in bras -- but never one quite like this.
One-handed, half-armed model Tanja Kiewitz has become famous overnight after posing in a bra for a charity ad campaign, the "Today" show reports.
Kiewitz, a graphic designer who was born with her left arm ending just below her elbow, wears a low-cut black bra in the ad. Below, a tagline translates from French as: “Look me in the eyes … I said the eyes.”
And her disability seems to be only a small part of her appeal. The stunning 35-year-old looks a decade younger!
“They see that I am above all a woman and can be beautiful and sexy, and that disability is secondary,” Kiewitz said. “I wanted people to confront the ambiguity of beauty and disability.”
The ad was for CAP48, a nonprofit organization that highlights disability issues in France and Belgium.
Now, Kiewitz says she has "journalists from around the world calling" -- and we believe her. Who needs Victoria's Secret when you can see beauty and be inspired?
