The owner of a local lingerie store for petite women has spoken up in response to a report in a British tabloid that actress Keira Knightley refused to allow producers to digitally enhance her cleavage for a poster promoting “The Duchess,” her new film.
Ellen Shing, owner of Lula Lu in downtown San Mateo, issued a statement through a publicist in support of Knightley’s stand.
“Keira Knightley’s far from alone in her feelings,” said Shing. “It’s often assumed that women with small breasts are constantly fantasizing about implants, padded bras and more cleavage, but here at Lula Lu we’ve found the exact opposite to be true.”
“Most of our customers are happy with their bust size … they just want flattering bras that fit their natural shape,” Shing’s statement continued.
Alas, it appears the story that appeared in the Daily Mail was’t true, as Knightley has now declared that the dispute never took place.
