GQ: The other side

There’s another side to the controversial story of GQ photoshopping Irina Shayk naked: the magazine’s. Their take? She was naked, posed willingly, that no contract stated she had final say on the pictures used, and that any suggestion to the contrary is both a lie and slander.

The crux of GQ Spain’s retort is after the jump.

Via their blog GQ Spain have responded:

Irina posed nude for GQ , Irina knows, the Elite agency knows, the photographer knows, and so do the stylists and the fifteen witnesses who attended the photo shoot.

Under the previous contract we signed with the modeling agency and in our possession, commitment to the agency was that the interview be approved before publication by Gael Marie Elite agency. And it was.

We have the contract, more than 15 witnesses who saw Irina agree to undress for the session, we have the original photos of a naked Irina… What more evidence is needed? The facts, witnesses, original documents, photos … Why lie for lying’s sake?

Our feeling: anger and disbelief.
