Even model Molly Fletcher has criticised the ad by saying that she laughed when she saw the picture for the first time as the retouching had gone too far this time.
Defending the brand, Craig Lawrence, President of ONE.1Management, said that the picture does not look retouched as the girl does not look too thin and this is what the brand is about–making fantasies.
