Miranda Kerr Accused of Photoshopping Herself Skinnier on Instagram

Not the photoshopped image
Filtering your Instagram photo to make the lighting look better is one thing. But photoshopping an image of yourself? It appears images on former Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr's Instagram have been photoshopped. Eagle-eyed fashion writers have been comparing photos of Kerr with the same photos as posted on her Instagram and... oh dear, it does indeed look as if someone has been doing a bit of tinkering.

In fact, Kerr regrammed an altered version of a photo from the 2012 Victoria's Secret just a few days ago. Two photos in her own Instagram stream -- what on Earth is she thinking? And why does someone with her body feel the need to make herself look even thinner, anyway?!?

Kerr says she had "no idea" this was happening. Seriously, that's what she's saying. Here's what she said via Instagram: 

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!

Hmm... do we believe her? I think it would be easier to buy if there weren't a couple other clearly photoshopped images elsewhere in her Instagram stream. Then again, if she's just grabbing images off the Internet on the fly, it could happen. Except in this case she happened to grab an image in which she was altered to look slimmer, but the other two models in the photos were untouched. 

Do you think Miranda Kerr deliberately photoshopped images of herself on Instagram, or were they all accidents?

I would just take it at face value. I doubt she posted the photoshopped version on purpose.

Out of the hundreds of pictures she posts a few are photoshopped? I doubt it's on purpose. Look at all the other photos (almost all of them) of her half naked that aren't photoshopped.

A photoshopped picture of a celebrity? Say it ain't so!

All models are super vain and I am sure she did it but I really dont care. I have two friends who are models and they do the same thing before posting any selfies. If the ribs are showing even better. I just laugh at them. Nothing to be taken serious.

It was an honest mistake. I used to act and model, not on VS level, but over full time. That is what you do when need to promote. Google, find an image, and post. Seems like you all get your panties in a bunch for no reason. And even better she professionally handled the mistake. SMH at these writers.

I wonder if she's battling an eating disorder? She photoshops her own images and she's already so skinny. I also wonder if that might not also have something to do with her split with Orlando?
