She caused scandal back in the Nineties when she was caught having her toes sucked by an American businessman.
Fast forward 19 years and Sarah Ferguson is daring to bare her infamous feet again – but this time in a photoshoot for the U.S. edition of Harper”s Bazaar.
Revisiting her former glory days as a member of the Royal family, Fergie was dressed up in a glamorous red dress.
Revealing: Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has flashed her toes in a new photoshoot for Harper”s Bazaar U.S. where she is promoting her new book Finding Sarah: A Duchess”s Journey
She wore a diamond necklace and matching earrings and her famous red hair was coiffed in a half up do.

The Duchess of York also let her toes peep out from under the long dress, resting them on a pineapple which is among an array of fruit at her feet.
Perhaps it is a cheeky nod to the scandalous photos of U.S. financialmanager John Bryan apparently sucking her toes in the south of France back in 1992.
In the accompanying interview she talks about everything from her recent cash for access scandal to calling her ex-husband her “soul mate”.
Ferguson is promoting her new book Finding Sarah: A Duchess”s Journey to Find, which is out in June.
In her latest interview, Fergie insists that she was not being disloyal to Prince Andrew when secret video of her negotiating a cash sum for access to her ex-husband came to light last year.
She says that a businessman, who turned out to be a imposter from British newspaper News of the World, wanted to invest in her company so she suggested that he meet her family.
“If you’re going to invest in my business, with that comes my family, because we’re all a team together.
“It shocked me to the roots of my whole being. I didn’t do that, selling access,” Fergie said of the furore.

“But the way it came across in the video, it was so horrible, because they cut it and edited it and changed it, chopped it”, she claimed.
But despite all the scandals from the latest one to the mother-of-two being pictured sunbathing topless while having her toes sucked by American businessman John Bryan, Fergie says she and Prince Andrew are still great friends.
“He”s such a great man and a first-rate father and the bestest friend,” Fergie insisted.
She added: “I love him. He”s my soulmate. It”s actually what we said in front of God at the altar.

“We honour and respect each other until death do us part. The only thing is, he has girlfriends and I have boyfriends.”
The 51-year-old stressed that she is currently single but “would love a boyfriend”.
She spends most of her time with her daughters Princess Beatrice, 22, and Princess Eugenie, 21, and says she is proud of the job she has done with her two daughters.
“The only thing I know I”ve done 100 per cent right is be a good mother”, Fergie said.
“I”m proud to say I”m the best mum I know. People say to be, “What is your brand identity” And I say, “I”m a global mother.””
Fergie also addressed how she felt not being invited to the nuptials of Prince William and Duchess Catherine last month and said she understood why she was not included.

“I understand that they didn”t invite me. I”m divorced from Prince Andrew.
“I think it”s a new chapter and a fresh page. I look at it and think, I was once that bride.
“It”s very sad. You”re happy for them, of course, but it”s sad because you”d love to do it all over again, but with the awareness that you have now,” she surmised.
Fergie says that she has learned a lot and feels like she is a better person for it and does not think she will make the same mistakes again.
“It won’t happen again,” she says, “because I’m awake now. I’m aware of my behaviour.”
She is now set to showcase her progress and her journey of self-discovery in a new docu-series called Finding Sarah that will air on Oprah Winfrey”s network, OWN.
The pair have become friends after Fergie appeared on Oprah”s talk show last year.
Sarah Ferguson”s memoir is released on June 28 and her docu-series on OWN premieres on June 12.
