Marina Diamandis — formerly known by her stage name Marina and the Diamonds — has called out a fashion designer for digitally retouching her legs to look like “sticks” after she wore one of the label’s dresses to an awards ceremony.

The Welsh singer took to social media to speak out against the fashion brand, which she did not name.

She described the moment as “internalized misogyny in full action” and called for fellow designers to “do better” and “be less dumb.” 

The singer admitted that 10 years ago, she would have been hurt by the manipulated image and would have probably even reposted the photoshopped photograph. But now, she understands that it’s “irresponsible” to distort somebody’s figure.

If you want me to wear your clothing, don’t photoshop my wonderful hourglass body shape as if it’s is unacceptable,” she added.

Fans soon started to speculate which designer was behind the scandal, with some believing it to be Greek couturier Celia Kritharioti.

Back in December, Diamandis wore one of the designer’s sheer ruffled jumpsuits to the British Fashion Awards.

Amid the speculation, the singer simply retweeted one of her fan’s responses to the criticism, explaining that it isn’t about the designer’s identity but “the need to Photoshop another woman’s body to fit a certain mold.”

She isn’t the only celebrity to call out the fashion industry for retouching images without permission.

Jameela Jamil recently apologized to fans who may have been affected by altered photographs of the actress taken in her 20s.

The 33-year-old revealed that looking at the images now,makes her feel “gross.”

“When I first started out in this industry, I didn’t know I was allowed to say no to airbrushing,” she told Red magazine. “I was given a whiter face, a little English nose and perfect skinny thighs. It makes me feel gross.”

“I’m sorry to anyone who ever saw pictures of me like that and wanted to be thin like me,” Jamil added.
