I also thought there was nothing sexist about the comment, at absolute worst it simply isn't the most appropriate thing for a company to say, then again it's simply showing a human side to a company which doesn't have to be a bad thing.

Also shouldn't her opinion about this be what matters and I doubt she cares, who would be offended by someone saying they have a nice rear which is basically a polite compliment compared to what others might say, after all that's basically why she's there and chances are she knows all that. Hell chances are the extra attention will only help her career as a model.

No, there has to be a standard which can be applied equally or it leads to confusion and resentment. Just like 'no means no'. It's not 'no is sometimes a yes'. Regardless of the fact that she's obviously out there and doesn't mind being paid to be an object there still has to be boundaries and a modicum of common sense applied in these sorts of social situations. It's one thing to say that sort of thing to your buddies in private, it's another thing to say that when you're posting as an official company rep. Just not cricket, old sock.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
