Ann Taylor Caught Photoshopping Skinny Model Even Skinnier

Jessica Wakeman / August 4, 2010

Ann Taylor knows what sells clothes: thin. Yesterday afternoon, Jezebel noticed that an item on was originally depicted by a skinny model in a tank top, but three seconds later, the page re-boots and the skinny model has magically dropped 20 lbs. around her midsection. Some might say the image was airbrushed beyond looking like a proportional human being. But what a bunch of whiners! Seriously, how could that fat cow sell a Chiffon Trim Tank looking that huge? Next you’re going to tell me something crazy like we should have models who are actually the size of the average American woman. [ and]
