Ashlee Simpson has come under fire for having a nose job after appearing in a special "body image" issue of a US magazine.

The 21-year-old star was chosen as the cover girl for the July issue of Marie Claire to emphasise how important it was for women to love their own bodies.

However, by the time the magazine hit news-stands, Ashlee looked very different after having cosmetic surgery and long blonde hair extensions.

Marie Claire received more than 1,000 angry letters of complaint from readers, and even editor Joanna Coles waded into the debate.
