Back in June, the US edition of Marie Claire ran a feature on Ashlee Simpson as part of an empowering piece on being proud of your body and embracing your image.

Then, of course, she had a nose job.

Now, Marie Claire have run an expanded bunch of letters and a headmasterly dressing down for Simpson:

"She was quoting chapter and verse about how crucial it is to love yourself as you are, etc.," Editor in Chief Joanna Coles wrote. "We're dazed and confused — and disappointed — by her choice too!"

Simpson's response has come from a spokesperson:

"I'm sorry the new editor is using Ashlee to get publicity for her magazine."

Because, of course, using a platform for publicity is bad, of course. Unless, we suppose, you're Ashlee Simpson, who wasn't at all using the original article and the group of teenage girls mak[ing] a mural that celebrated the female figure she appeared with for publicity.
