Britney: Before & After Airbrushing, Photoshop Madness

Seems like the visuals here just speak for themselves, but we’ll give you a little context: Apparently, Britney Spears wanted to reach out to her fans by releasing un-altered images from an old Candie’s fashion shoot. Uh huh. Raanndom, but we’ll take it! Public awareness of just how much goes into Photoshopping images for advertising and editorial has skyrocketed in the past few years, but we’ll never get tired of seeing stuff like this. Another image, after the jump! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Why Your Hair Will Never Look As Good As The Commercials

You know that not everything on TV is real. But you’d assume that ads selling a product would show off fairly accurate, achievable results, right? (OK, maybe you wouldn’t, but who knows?) Reports show that over 25 percent of commercials selling beauty items like mascara or shampoo artificially enhanced their models with false lashes or hair extensions in order to sell their wares. Most recently, Cheryl Cole’s L’Oreal advertisements displayed flowing, shiny hair, which later turned out to be extensions. In fact, the next time you marvel at the long, extended lashes in mascara commercials, don’t grab your wallet and run out to the drugstore. Over 58 percent of those gorgeous black eyelashes were actually touched up during post-production — meaning Photoshop is the true beauty product to invest in, not a million different kinds of mascara.

Aubrey O’Day’s Milkshake Won’t Bring Boys To The Yard

This is just plain scary. The reality cracktress pop star is the new campaign model for classy L.A. chain Millions of Milkshakes. Not only is Photoshop working overtime on her bod, but apparently no one is timing Aubrey O’Day‘s 15 minutes. [TheLifeFiles] Keep reading »

Get Photoshop-Happy With Snooki

While you count down the days until the new season of “Jersey Shore,” here’s a blog to keep you entertained — Snookie Shop. Those with Photoshop and silhouetting talents cut and paste everyone’s favorite reality show whiner into random locations — movie posters, alongside former President Clinton, and even still shots from movies like “The Hangover.” We especially appreciate the very guidette outfit that she’s sporting in each image: a hot pink track jacket paired with liquid leggings and Uggs. And though we’re itching for a bit of sartorial variety, this “Sex and the City” poster couldn’t be more perfect. [Snookie Shop] 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.

Korean W Gives Demi Moore Her Hip Back

Poor Demi Moore. Just as the Photoshop drama regarding her W cover finally became last week’s news, the Korean version of the magazine had to go and stir up more controversy. As is the norm, the international mag reprinted the American cover, but failed to use the exact same copy of the image. To recap, after the initial drama, Demi took to Twitter and blasted out what she claimed to be an un-Photoshopped TwitPic of the issue which matches the American issue, followed by her lawyers sending a “threatening letter” to bloggers. But look really close at Demi’s left hip on the Korean W cover. See that extra bit of skin? She was Photoshopped, plain and simple. Now the question is, just which issue was touched up: the skinner hip or the fleshier one? So far there’s no response on the new Korean cover. Meh, at the end of the day, they’re probably both altered, just in different ways. [Hm, or are they just cropped differently?--Editor] [NY Post] Keep reading »

Photoshopping Meryl Streep: I Mean, Really?

I found this photograph after clicking on a VanityFair.com link that read: “Click here to see a slide show of Brigitte Lacombe’s portraits of Meryl Streep.” So, you get a series of photographs that Lacombe has taken of Streep over the years. The first one was taken in 1979. The most recent one is the one you see here and was taken in October. The package comes as part of an online-only teaser for a cover story on Streep, which graces the January issue of the magazine. As Streep states in the piece, she’s experiencing a rare thing for women over 40 in Hollywood: a major comeback. “It’s incredible,” Streep crows proudly. “I’m 60, and I’m playing the romantic lead in romantic comedies!” So, what do they do with her? Why, they airbrush her to death, of course. After the jump, compare the Vanity Fair Streep with the real one, sans Photoshop. Keep reading »

Demi’s Bizarro Hips May Actually Belong To Another Woman!

Remember the controversy over Demi Moore’s W cover, in which it appeared that the magazine’s retouchers had photoshopped her hip to be thinner than her waist? Well, it turns out those bizarro proportions may actually belong to a real, live, breathing woman! The highly observant blogger behind Pop Culture Madness has noted that the body Demi’s head is on may actually belong to a model who wore the same dress in Balmain’s runway show.

“Check out what it appears to be 36 year old Anja Rubik’s superimposed body… scratch that – her body was attached to Demi Moore’s for the sake of a better cover image. You have to wonder, did Demi even wear the same Balmain dress?”

The image she presents as proof — Demi’s cover super-imposed over Rubik’s body — is startling. W claims that “nothing unusual” was done when retouching the cover image, but let’s face it: photoshopping the living hell out of images is par for the course these days. So what do you think? Shady or standard practice? [Pop Culture Madness] Keep reading »
