A woman who was mocked on Tinder for the Asos dress she was wearing has been featured as a model on the fast-fashion retailer’s website.
Thea Lauryn Chippendale, 20, was messaged by a man on the Tinder dating app who told her the dress she was wearing in one of her photos was “awful” and looked like a “charity shop job”. Chippendale posted a screenshot of the exchange on Twitter and has now received over 100,000 likes and 8,000 retweets for the post.

Fast-fashion retailer Asos, whose dress Chippendale was wearing, saw the viral post and is now featuring the same photo on its website to advertise the 74 pound dress.
"I'm absolutely gobsmacked that they've actually done it," Chippendale told Radio 1 Newsbeat. "I've had to pinch myself quite a few times to believe it's real. I'm still so shocked and amazed that they've put a picture of me on their website.”
