Don't blame Miranda! Miranda Kerr "had no idea" that an altered image of herself uploaded onto Instagram earlier this week had been photoshopped.
Kerr responded to the backlash Friday evening and explained, "Hi guys, here is the original VS image! When I re-posted the photo this week to support the girls I screen grabbed it off the internet when I was working in Japan. I had no idea it was photoshopped. All good intentions- sorry for the confusion and congratulations to the girls for such a great show!"
The former Victoria's Secret Angel, 30, posted a regram of sorts on Tuesday, Nov. 12, of herself backstage at the 2012 VS Fashion Show, posing with pals Doutzen Kroes and Alessanda Ambrosio. The image was nearly identical to the one she had originally shared on Instagram in Nov. 2012 -- with the exception of several bodily adjustments. The new picture revealed a significantly slimmer Kerr, whose figure appeared to have been photoshopped with a leaner waist and more defined tummy. The supermodel's face has also been retouched for a glowing effect, while Angels Kroes and Ambrosio's faces remained the same.
Followers of Orlando Bloom's estranged wife on the photo-enhancing social media app immediately slammed the supermodel-mom for apparently retouching her famous body. One keen observer commented on Kerr's revised image, "Most photos are unfortunately photoshopped. Why can't models stand up and say enough!"
Back in April, Us Weekly broke the news that Kerr was no longer a Victoria's Secret Angel. (She confirmed the news herself shortly thereafter, saying in a statement, "I'm just not in a position to commit to a full contract at this time.") So this past Wednesday, while her former colleagues stormed the runway in NYC for the 2013 fashion show special taping, she was in Tokyo to celebrate her Elle Japan cover with Michael Kors.
