Candyman’s daughter, Lucciana Beynon, 19, has been heavily photoshopped by a bikini brand after her runway debut at Miami Swim Week
An American bikini label has been accused of heavily editing photos of its own runway models – including: Australian stunner Lucciana Beynon.
Lucciana, the daughter of tobacco mogul Travers “Candyman” Beynon, made her runway debut for OMG Swimwear in July during Miami Swim Week.
But photos of the event, taken by a Getty Images photographer, look very different from the images OMG Swimwear has posted on Instagram.
What an insult! Candyman’s daughter Lucciana Beynon, 19, has been photoshopped by American swimwear brand OMG Swimwear in photos of the model walking on her first runway at this year’s Miami Swim Week.

Fans would struggle to recognize the emerging model from the photos shared on social media, as her features had changed significantly.
The edited images sparked a wave of criticism Wednesday after popular Instagram account CelebFace compared the retouched versions of OMG Swimwear to the original images from the Getty’s website.
In the edited images, Lucciana has noticeably slimmer features, including a smoother jawline and raised eyebrows.
Spot the Differences: Another image also featured an edited version of Lucciana’s body shape, sticking out her hips and making her appear smaller.

One of the photos even shows Lucciana’s body shape has been reworked, with her waist scrunched up to appear smaller.
Lucciana also looked more tanned in the edited version, while the natural texture of her skin was smoothed out with an airbrush filter.
Other models from the July 8 runway show also received the same airbrush treatment by OMG Swimwear’s social media team, including Karina Ramos, Aline Bernardes and Antje Utgaard.

Instagram users have criticized the manipulated images, calling the brand’s decision to Photoshop these genetically blessed women “an insult.”
“Before editing, they already looked like an Instagram filter… it’s like no one is ever good enough. Shame on them,” one person wrote.
“Give them all the exact same face,” added another.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted OMG Swimwear for comment.
