    Hi,

    Media reports in Japan suggested many of the people buying the calendars, including a large number of women, were drawn to Putin’s unconventional style and unashamed machismo.

    (This comes intellasia.net Russian off the shelves: Vladimir Putin calendar outsells rivals in Japan from The Guardian on Dec.18, 2018.)

    Does "unashamed" here mean "not hidden"?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes. It implies the opposite of shame: pride.
