Coco Rocha’s Photoshop Fury

Coco RochaCoco Rocha has hit out after a magazine allegedly Photoshopped images of her.

The stunning model appears on the front cover of Elle Brazil in a plunging skin-tight dress, which reveals lots of skin and cleavage. However, Coco claims she was wearing a body suit under the dress to protect her modesty but it had been edited out and took to her Tumblr account to speak of her upset.

"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."

In 2011, Coco starred in a Photoshop-free campaign for Canadian fashion retailer Jacob stating on her blog at the time that she hoped the shoot would "balance the scales a little by pulling so far back from what has been the current trend of total digital model manipulation."
