Ann Taylor Caught Photoshopping Skinny Model Even Skinnier

Ann Taylor knows what sells clothes: thin. Yesterday afternoon, Jezebel noticed that an item on AnnTaylor.com 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. [Jezebel.com and AnnTaylor.com] Keep reading »

Crystal Renn Says Her Uber-Skinny Photo Was Photoshopped

If you get caught Photoshopping a beautiful, healthy, full-figured woman to look like a twiglet, you should have one of your fingers chopped off. And I think supermodel Crystal Renn will agree: she told Glamour magazine she was “shocked” to see startling photos of her posing for a Fashion for Passion promotion, looking far, far skinnier than her size 10 or 12 plus-size model frame.

These pics were especially troubling given Renn’s hellacious bout with anorexia while trying to be a “straight size” model, which she described doing battle with in her recent memoir, Hungry. Rest assured, Renn has not re-developed her eating disorder. Instead, it’s just that Photoshop has struck again. Keep reading »

Lance Armstrong Is Not Happy With His Outside Magazine Cover

Tour de France cyclist Lance Armstrong is on the cover of the July issue of Outside, but he’s pissed about how the cover photo turned out. Why? Apparently, Outside staffers Photoshopped the text onto Armstrong’s plain blue T-shirt so it reads “38. BFD.” — a reference to his age not being a Big F**king Deal, I guess? Anyway, Armstrong tweeted the following when he saw the magazine:

”Just saw the cover of the new Outside mag w/ yours truly on it. Nice photoshop on a plain t-shirt guys. That’s some lame bulls**t. #weak”

Breaking News From French Marie Claire: Unretouched Models Still Perfect!

Behold! The airbrush-free April issue of French Marie Claire.

Quotable: Emily Blunt Says “No” To Airbrushing Diets

“I told him [the airbrusher] not to make me thinner. I hate when your legs are three times the length they actually are. It’s unfair to represent an image of yourself if it’s not true. They’re gonna see what you look like on film anyway, so why try to cover all your wobbly bits in a photo?”

— Emily Blunt in an interview with Los Angeles Times Magazine, of which she is this month’s cover girl [via People] Keep reading »

Kourtney Kardashian Gets The Deluxe OK! Photoshop Treatment

Another celeb has taken to Twitter in order to address outrageous magazine Photoshopping. But while Demi Moore fought against the claims that she was altered, Kourtney Kardashian is readily admitting that her body in real life does not match what appears on the cover of OK! magazine. And to make matters worse, in the race to secure exclusives, it seems that editors failed to actually ensure the rights to the story. “One of those weeklies got it wrong again … they didn’t have an exclusive with me,” tweeted Kourtney. “And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26 … But thanks!” In addition to their inaccurate figures, the magazine also altered her cover image, making her appear skinnier than she really is.
