Kelly Brook has hit back at those who’ve criticised her for Photoshopping her Instagram pictures.
The 35-year-old came under serious fire at the weekend for appearing to edit one of the snaps taken at the launch of London restaurant Ping Pong last week.
She’d posted a selection of images from the event, giving fans a good look at the figure-hugging sparkly midi dress she’d opted for.
Kelly (and her body) looked ah-mazing in the outfit. However, certain parts of her physique looked somewhat different in the aforementioned shot.
Followers accused her of significantly slimming down her waist, calling her ‘pathetic’, ‘vain’ and ‘sad’. Eek.
But the furore didn’t seem to get Kelly down. Instead, she posted a photo from another occasion – and confessed in the caption that she DOES use Photoshop from time to time.
She’s certainly not ashamed of this fact, comparing her use of editing to wearing hair extensions or getting plastic surgery.
Kelly wrote: ‘Depending on Camera Angles and Clothes my size comes in to question a lot. The pictures I post are not unrealistic to who I am. I embrace my Curves and love my body.
‘Slightly photoshopping pics is no different to women wearing fake hair, putting chicken Fillets in their bras, squeezing into Spanx or having filler and Botox in their face. None of which I do.
