Internet outcry over hairy leg tights

A pair of tights which make the model look as if she has extremely hairy legs has become an accidental internet hit over the last week.

The lace tights are fawn in colour and give the distinct impression of unshaven legs, which has caused the photo to be taken down, to go viral.

Once it was established that the unusual look was not the result of a mischievous photo shopper, the tights were dubbed 'hairy leg tights' and ridiculed by online fashion bloggers.

Consequently, the company responsible for this style faux pas have switched the original photo for an almost identical one where the model is now sporting black patterned tights.

The tights are described on the retailer's site as an "essential ingredient in the season's textural mash-up", as patterned tights are expected to be a big hit this winter.
