It was hardly a surprise that Heidi Montag’s Playboy photos received an overwhelming (and very public) display of approval from her husband Spencer Pratt.

But what did a seasoned body-baring pro think of her nude debut?

Former bikini model Beth Stern, whose work has graced the pages of FHM and Maxim,  gives The Hills star a big thumbs up.

“She looks beautiful,” Mrs  Howard Stern told OK! at a benefit for the North Shore Animal League America.

“Her body is beautiful.”

In fact, Beth could scarcely believe Heidi was taking her first try at posing au naturale.

“It’s her first time?,” asked Beth at the Algonquin Hotel in New York. “She did awesome for her, she looks beautiful and why not?”
