Believe it or not, everyone has their insecurities, even someone known for her beautiful looks, like model and actress Emily Ratajkowski. Her fiercest and most enviable style moments have been well-documented, and who can forget her gorgeous, beachy hair which is never out of place?

On Friday, the 26-year-old took to Instagram to call out French magazine Madame Figaro, the cover of which she graces.

In an emotional post, Ratajkowski shared that the publication had photoshopped her breasts and lips for their cover, presenting both the original photo and final product for comparison.

‘Everyone is uniquely beautiful in their own ways. We all have insecurities about the things that make us different from a typical ideal of beauty,’ the model wrote on Instagram.

‘I, like so many of us, try every day to work past those insecurities. I was extremely disappointed to see my lips and breasts altered in Photoshop on this cover. I hope the fashion industry will finally learn to stop trying to stifle the things that make us unique and instead begin to celebrate individuality.’

Ratajkowski’s breasts and lips appear noticeably larger in the un-edited image.

It comes just months after Emily opened up about why she feels her body is stopping her from getting work within the modelling and movie industry.

She recently told Harper’s Bazaar: ‘There’s this thing that happens to me: “Oh, she’s too sexy.” It’s like an anti-woman thing, people don’t want to work with me because my boobs are too big.

‘What’s wrong with boobs? They’re a beautiful, feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares?’

For what it’s worth, we think the original shot is exquisite.
