One commenter wrote, “love her but yikes at the Photoshopping on this...”

Another added, “You are a true beauty but this photo has been altered unnecessarily.”

In the forward of the book, Copeland writes that there was no glam squad on the set, and she was blown away by the final photos.

“Because of the unassuming simplicity in our preparation, I didn’t expect to see the exceptional classic beauty that was consistently created in our photographs, and I was blown away by how full and finessed the end product always was,” Copeland writes. “For the majority of our shoots there was no glam squad or walls of wardrobe -- I did my own hair and makeup, wore my own clothes, and just like that, we’d get to work.”

The book will be released September 27th.

Delman and Copeland did not return FOX411’s request for comment.
