This image is making its round in cyberspace….is it wrong to snap a 16 year old model and plaster her all over the internet? Is this the modeling industry in regardless of an model’s age? Controversial? One thing is for certain is Michaela Steenkamp face and breast will be seen all over the world….that type of advertisement is priceless for an upcoming model. #Global
“New Zealand’s Next Top Model” under fire for having a 16-year-old contestant pose topless, with only mud smeared across her naked breasts. Then the show posted an unedited picture from the shoot online.
According to the New Zealand Herald News the image of teenage contestant Michaela Steenkamp “appeared on [NZ's] TV3 website yesterday morning showing her posing over a rock, her body smeared with mud but with her breasts clearly shown.” Several hours later, TV3 replaced the image in question with the same picture but with steam covering up Steenkamp’s chest.
