A model photographed near naked for a cover is a common thing. But it’ll be a different story if the model told the magazine people that they won’t do near naked shoot and the final cover was photoshopped out so it looks like one.
Here’s a quote from Coco Rocha‘s blog regarding her controversial Elle Brazil cover (in a Julien Macdonald dress) photographed by Max Abadian:
“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.”
Will she sue the magazine? We just have to wait and see.
