What Models Really Look Like — Without Photoshopping

Though we logically know that the images we see in magazines have been airbrushed and retouched beyond recognition, it’s still hard not to compare ourselves to the glossy, fresh and smooth faces and bodies we see. Which is why it’s healthy to take a glance at photographer Scott Trindle’s photos of models in their natural state. From top left, clockwise, Raquel Zimmerman, Natalia Vodianova, Jessica Clarke and Kristy Hume show their brave and makeup-free faces to the world. [Styileite] Keep reading »

Photoshop Fail: Urban Outfitters Dress Defies The Laws Of Physics

Obviously, Urban Outfitters is an affordable trendsetting retailer, but did you know they are also MAGICIANS? Photoshop Disasters came across this image on Urban’s website in which the model dons Silence & Noise’s Ikat Dress whilst hovering. That is some David Blaine s**t right there. But seriously, Urban, I would have thought that dress was pretty damn cute even without the magical powers. Break out the bag of tricks for your more hideous offerings next time, ‘kay?

Make Up For Ever’s Models Aren’t Airbrushed

Photoshop is out of control, people. These days, y’all should just assume any model’s thighs are twice as thick as they appear. That’s why I’m loving these completely unretouched ads from the beauty line Make Up For Ever. In fact, these pics have even been certified by a notary! Each of the models is naturally gorgeous and had her makeup professionally applied, of course. But I still love any and all proof that women can look this ah-maz-ing without airbrushing.

Check out another one of Make Up For Ever’s airbrushing-free images, after the jump: Keep reading »

As for this Victoria’s Secret model, well, the way she’s been Photoshopped just makes me want to go bowling. [Victoria's Secret via The Gloss] Keep reading »

Jane Fonda Poses Without Photoshop

What’s that? Wrinkles on the cover of a national magazine? Could it be?!?! Jane Fonda, looking fabulous at 73, posed on the cover of Good Housekeeping (you know, that magazine your grandma reads?) sans airbrushing. “I feel sorry for these young actresses coming up,” Fonda told the magazine, continuing:

“If they have a dimple on their buttock, there’s a close-up of it in some gossip magazine. So there’s a cult of perfection. Consequently all the young people who emulate celebrities think they have to look perfect and that’s so destructive.”

Granted this is observation is coming from a woman with plastic surgery who is famous, in part, for her line of aerobics videos. But hey, I’ll take my feminists in Hollywood where I can get them. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
