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 very model has a right to set rules for how she is portrayed and for me these rules were clearly circumvented. - Coco Rocha

What do you think about Coco Rocha’s nudity manifesto? Though I personally find it surprising that a high fashion model has such a clause – and would appreciate it if Kate Moss would consider the same – I find it appalling that her wishes were ignored in such a manner. Why not just use another model, if this was the look they were going for? If they wanted Coco Rocha, they should have taken Coco Rocha – as much or as little as she wanted to give them. Thoughts, please.
