Supermodel Coco Rocha Slams Elle Brasil Over Digital Undressing

Supermodel Coco Rocha has spoken out about her recent Elle Brasil May cover which saw the magazine Photoshopping a body suit out from under a sheer Julien Macdonald dress.

Coco, a model with a longstanding no nudity or partial nudity policy for shoots, voiced her anger in a post on her official Tumblr, stating:

"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."

Coco's personal policy on nudity and partial nudity (which we at MyDaily salute wholeheartedly) marks her out as something of an exception in the modelling community and, given her stance, it seems more than a little daft that Elle Brasil wouldn't either take account of Coco's wishes or book a different model for this specific shoot.

Here's the look as it appeared on the Julien Macdonald S/S 2012 catwalk during London Fashion Week:
