A star that's comfortable with her natural shape and doesn't mess with it is incredibly sexy!! Vivid gets this and they've captured Allie's beauty in Allie Haze: Natural Beauty. Allie isn't the only natural beauty in this flick; she's joined by Kelly Klass, Tia Cyrus, Ally Styles and one of our favorite natural beauties Adriana Luna!
