LA style blogger Maegan Tintari of ... Love, Maegan is kicking up a fuss after a brand deal resulted in her face and body being photoshopped. Tintari accepted a free bag from Brahmin and agreed to take photos with the bag that the company could use for its catalog. After seeing the final result, she writes, "My photo had indeed been altered...but at first I couldn't tell what on earth had been done to even get my face to look like that." The brand denies the allegations of retouching. [Racked N'tl]
