Ann Taylor, are you seeing what we’re seeing??
The fashion label came under fire a little while back for one of their bikini photos (above), in which a model’s upper torso appears to have been shrunken significantly smaller than her waist.
They have since removed the image from their site, but not without pleading innocence:
"The photo in question was actually only minimally retouched to remove a tattoo. Admittedly, the photo highlighted the model at an awkward angle, making it look as if there had been significant retouching. That was not the case. You can see in the original photo the shape of the model is consistent, and the retouching was simply to address the tattoo and not the shape of the model. Because the photo could be perceived as significantly retouched, we have replaced the shot on our website. At our heart, we are a brand that is about making women feel more confident and stylish. The LOFT team is personally committed to making sure our product and marketing live up to brand promise."
And this definitely isn't the first time mysterious photoshop mutilations have surfaced on Ann Taylor's site, so we don't know if we buy it.
Check out the photo Ann Taylor is calling “untouched” and judge for yourself …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
