My favorite supermodel Coco Rocha is on the May cover of Elle Brazil but this is not a cover Coco will be hanging on her wall. The supermodel is very disappointed that Elle Brazil made her look like she is wearing less clothes then she is comfortable and was wearing. Coco was wearing a bodysuit under the sheer dress that appears on the cover. Many of you might not see anything wrong with this because she is wearing much more clothes then most models out there are, but Coco is one of the few models who does not do nude or anything that shows more skin then she is comfortable showing. As you can see on the photo above, it give the impression that Coco is showing her boobs and that's not something Coco would ever do or has done in her entire career, she has even said no to working with Victoria Secret. One of the reasons why admire Coco so much is one because she is down to earth and also because unlike other models out there, she uses her power in the fashion industry to try to make it better for others, and also because unlike most models out there Coco doesn't sell sex, she sells the product with a good photo and with clothes on. Hopefully other models will take Coco's example and say no to certain things that they are not comfortable doing, and to speak up when their rights are violated. Here's what Coco posted on her Tumblr 

"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.
