Woman Who Was Verbally Attacked By A Tinder Match Becomes ASOS Model
ICYMI, Thea Chippendale went viral earlier in the week, when she shared the vile abuse she received from a Tinder match who told her a dress she was wearing in one of her pictures was "not doing any favours".
When the 20-year-old challenged George on why he felt his opinion was at all relevant, he launched into a ridiculous rant, telling her: "Literally had to tell you else I wouldn't of slept. It's awful you not reckon? Charity shop job! I tell you what.. GROW UP! And shop somewhere decent! Thanks."

Since sharing the conversation, along with the picture of the dress (which incidentally is nothing short of stunning) on Twitter, the tweet has received nearly 100,000 likes and been inundated with responses telling Thea how incredible she looks.
Now, ASOS - aka the "charity shop" behind the dress, has taken it one step further, by putting Thea's photo on its website advertising the lace midi dress. Bravo.

Sharing the link to the dress on its website, ASOS said: "Swipe right to see who had the last laugh."
Some girls were so impressed with Thea's photo that they went straight on the ASOS website to order the £75 dress themselves.
:clap::clap::clap::clap: Amazing, and actually, it's amazing to see what the dress looks like on a real woman in a real setting. I wouldn't have bought the dress based on the original pictures but seeing Thea's picture I want it!!

After her tweet went viral, Thea told Pretty52: "It did really upset me when he first sent it to me because, I understand that people have different opinions about what they see as nice or pretty, but he went out of his way to be mean to me? So I saw it as really malicious and cruel."
But she has found that the internet has been a great source of catharsis and support: "Since posting it on Twitter, there have been SO many people replying to the tweet and sending me messages and they're all just so lovely!
"I've never personally experienced something quite as bad as this, but I've definitely had my fair share of strange messages from people before."
It's fair to say Thea certainly did have the last laugh.
