Photoshop Of Horrors: Lindsey Wixson

We’ve written about 15-year-old model Lindsey Wixson here before, and now her new ad campaign for Miu Miu, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, is floating its way around the fashion blogs. This shot in particular caught our eye. No doubt, Wixson is tall and skinny, but that leg? It looks either very, very skinny and very, very long, or it’s been weirdly tweaked by that magical body-morphing process known as Photoshop. These days, there’s a great deal of discussion over how thin is too thin in the modeling world, and why those in the magazine and advertising industries insist upon tweaking women’s bodies into unreal, unsightly proportions. It’s hard to tell if what’s going on here is a pair of coltish legs or a photo-manipulator gone wild. Either way, it looks … alien. Isn’t Wixson interesting-looking enough on her own? [The Cut]
