A couple weeks ago we told you about an amazing 14-year-old activist named Julia Bluhm who wrote a petition to Seventeen magazine asking them to publish one unaltered photo spread every month. Well, since then Julia’s been busy. Her petition has garnered over 74,000 signatures (yep, you read that right: 74,000), she scored a profile in The New York Times, and she recently held a mock photo shoot outside the Seventeen offices (that’s her in the middle)… Keep reading »

The cover of a recent issue of LOOK magazine features Rihanna looking, well, a little wonky, no? That’s because the photo of the singer is an exceptionally poor composite, cut and pasted together from two separate images. Rihanna’s head is from a photo taken on the red carpet of the “Battleship” premiere in Japan, while her body was from a photo shot at the Stella McCartney presentation at London Fashion Week. Oh, and her body was flip-flopped and her dress was colored pink instead of green. How creative! Why not just draw a picture of the Rihanna with crayons? Seriously. [Red Carpet Fashion Awards]

Sadly, while Photoshop is a necessary and helpful tool, it is often used to excess, especially when it comes to “perfecting” celebrity images. Just look at these other lovely celeb women who’ve suffered at the hands of an overeager Photoshopper.

This poor model’s waist has been whittled away so much that her middle is now barely as wide as her head. That can’t be healthy — or even, well, possible, now can it? The hack Photoshop job is made all the more obvious because the back shot of the Vera Wang gown shows the model with correct un-’shopped proportions. Quite the difference, no? [Daily Mail UK]

Why a "no airbrushing" policy is good, but not good enough. Read More »

Honestly, it took us forever to figure out the famous lady on the cover of the Russian edition of Harper’s Bazaar. She barely, barely looks like herself, thanks to copious amounts of airbrushing and (perhaps) plastic surgery. Also, a strange lipstick color. Still not sure who the famous face is? Click for the answer after the jump!

A lot of work — and airbrushing — goes into modeling. Here are (from left to right) Alessandra Ambrosio, Crystal Renn and Brooklyn Decker posing for Victoria’s Secret.

Shocker! Cate Blanchett has fine lines. She even has slight bags under her eyes. Big, huge gasp!

Blanchett bravely posed for the March/April cover of Intelligent Life magazine without the assistance of makeup, retouching, or a wardrobe stylist. The magazine’s editor-in-chief says that they wanted to capture  Blanchett in her natural habitat, as “a woman of 42, spending her days in an office, her evenings on stage and the rest of her time looking after three young children.”  Keep reading »
