When we first heard about Missguided no longer using Photoshop on its models, we were thrilled.
While plenty of people gushed about the brand featuring models with stretch marks, body hair, and scars, some people were quick to raise their brows at the stretch marks, insisting they were too even and the shading looked off.
Revelist spoke with the model, Amanda [last name redacted], exclusively.
Asked whether the stretch marks were added by editors, Amanda said, "I actually have quite a lot of stretch marks and I'm happy that such a big, well-known brand decided to keep them there. It goes to show that everyone, no matter how old you are, can have them."
We asked Amanda about the zoomed-in image that's circulating on social media and she said she hadn't seen it, so we sent it to her.
After seeing it, she replied via Instagram DM, "Honestly I don't know what goes on in the editing room."
