Coco against Elle

Some models have no problem with nudity, like Heidi in Allure, but the current cover of Elle Brazil was not what Coco wanted and the whole world can know it. The creative department at Elle was a bit too eager to make their cover sexy and happily turned to Photoshop to do so. I just finished a basic photoshop training and it is unbelievable what you can do with this program. But as long as magazines use top models, they should also respect their wishes. Otherwise they could better turn to computer-animated models and go crazy on them.

Coco’s response on her blog: ‘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.’
