Coco Rocha Calls Out Elle Brasil For Photoshopping Her Clothes Off
Coco Rocha is one of the (very, very) few supermodels who has managed to reach the top of her game without ever having posed totally (or even a little bit) nude. Until now. Sort of.
Rocha fronts the May issue of Elle Brasil in a sheer dress, and while she wore a body suit underneath it during the photoshoot, the mag’s team airbrushed it out. She is not pleased. As per Rocha’s Tumblr:
As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photo shoots. 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. This was specifically against my expressed verbal and written direction to the entire team that they not do so. 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.
For what it’s worth, it’s a poor Photoshop job. It’s also incredibly rare for a model to speak out about a contract being broken. To which we say: you go, Coco.
