Coco Rocha has slammed Elle Brazil for airbrushing a cover photo of her.
The Canadian model posed for the magazine’s May 2012 edition in a sheer blue dress. On the cover Coco seems to wear nothing underneath, exposing her cleavage.
She took to her Tumblr page yesterday to lash out at the magazine for retouching the image.
“As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photoshoots,” she said.
“For my recent Elle Brazil cover shoot I wore a body suit under a sheer dress which I now find was photoshopped out to give the impression of me showing much more skin than I was, or am comfortable with.”
She insists she told the publication she was against partial nudity before the shoot. Coco, who is known for being outspoken on social media, claims the magazine did not honour their agreement.
“This was specifically against my expressed verbal and written direction to the entire team that they not do so,” she said.
“I’m extremely disappointed that my wishes and contract was ignored. I strongly believe every model has a right to set rules for how she is portrayed and for me these rules were clearly circumvented.”
Coco is not the first star to slam the magazine industry standard of photoshopping. Kate Winslet said the retouching of her 2003 GQ cover was “excessive” while Pakistani actress Veena Malik recently sued FHM for using airbrushing that implied she'd posed nude.© Cover Media
