    The racy photos, which appear to show the "New Moon" star topless and, in another, fully nude, appeared online one day after Ashley picked up the Choice Fresh Face Female award at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.

    Overall, it was a big night for Ashley, 22, and her "Twilight" cohorts, as they took home 11 awards altogether.

    However, Ashley isn't the only young star currently caught up in a nude photo scandal.

    A set of nude photos of "High School Musical" and "Bandslam" star Vanessa Hudgens circulated online last week. It was the second set of racy photos of the actress to be leaked in the past few years.
