Crossword Genius

Former model beginning to dance naked (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

exposed

Here is my best explanation:

'naked' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'former model beginning to dance' is the subsidiary indication.

'former' becomes 'ex'.

'model' becomes 'pose' ('pose' can be a synonym of 'model').

'beginning to' says to take the initial letters.

The first letter of 'dance' is 'd'.

'ex'+'pose'+'d'='exposed'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for exposed that I've seen before include "Unprotected from the weather", "Without protection", "Not covered", "Made public", "Open to view", "Unmasked, revealed", "Without cover", "Uncovered, visible", "Brought to light" and "Not hidden".)
