Coco Rocha is showing some skin on her latest magazine cover—and she’s not happy about it.

The model and designer has spoken out against Elle Brazil for a Photoshop job that’s left her looking more exposed than she had wanted.

“As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photo shoots,” Rocha wrote on her website. “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.”

The dress in question is an intricately embroidered illusion dress from Julien Macdonald’s Spring 2012 collection (you can see the full look on the runway here)—and though she hardly looks nude, for Rocha, it’s the illusion that’s the issue.

“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,” she continued. “I strongly believe very model has a right to set rules for how she is portrayed and for me these rules were clearly circumvented.”
