It came as a shock to fans as Emily has, in the past, been vocal about the issues plaguing the modelling industry. She has also discussed how she struggled with body image.

Fans took to the comment section, with one of them saying, “What a strange second photo. And you wrote a book about body image? Mm!” “Designers won’t make plus sizes unless it’s for a photo opp where a thin person can be quirky,” one user said, while another wrote, “The fact a whole team of people worked on this and thought this was cool is so fu**** up”. “what is the reason for this second photo? genuinely curious,” one user said, while another wrote, “writing a book centered body image and then doing the second photo is crazy”.

“One user mocked Emily, saying, “omg ur so skinny should we have a party should we invite bella hadid”. “That second photo is such godforsaken trash. In the year of our lord 2023?? STILL??? Yikes,” one user said, while another wrote, “That second pic is so out of touch and ignorant but the comments are chef’s kiss.
