Subject: [Leica] glamour/nude photography

I've decided to start nude photography as a hobby.  In my research so 
far, and considering the style I want to do (natural, no artificial 
lighting), I have decided that a Leica M6 would be best suited for me.  
My question is, what focal lengths are recommended?  I know super-wides 
wouldn't be very flattering because of the distortion.  I was thinking 
of getting the classic Summicron trio 35-50-90, or even a 35/90 
Summicrons and 50 Noctilux.  Does anyone have any other suggestions 
and/or recommend any good books to check out?  Thanks!
