Karlie Kloss Semi-Nude in Controversial Numéro Magazine Shoot by Greg Kadel
Photographer Greg Kadel shares his black and white spread for Numéro Magazine, featuring American supermodel Karlie Kloss in a variety of semi-nude poses. There’s a bit of drama surrounding this shoot:
Greg Kadel’s original shows Karlie’s natural ribs intact, while a second Photoshopped version, printed by Numéro, has the ribs smoothed out.
Here’s the statement from Greg’s studio on the issue: “It was Greg’s desire to represent Karlie as she naturally is … slender, athletic and beautiful. That is why he released the images as he intended them to be seen by the public. He is shocked and dismayed that unbeknownst to him, Numéro took it upon themselves to airbrush over his original images. Greg stands by his original artwork and cannot stress enough that he not only was unaware of the magazine’s retouching but also finds the airbrushing of Karlie unacceptable and unnecessary.”
