Quotable: Emily Blunt Talks Smack About Airbrushing

“I don’t like it when they stretch you out and make you all long and skinny. It makes you look like a Barbie. Who the hell looks like that?”

– Emily Blunt would prefer you leave the fun house mirror retouching to yourself, please. Hopefully, Elle UK did for her September issue cover. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

The Daily Beast Makes Chelsea Clinton Look Vaguely Skeletal

Chelsea Clinton’s wedding is going down this weekend, complete with its $15K porta-potties. And folks can’t stop talking about her wedding dress—will it be a Vera Wang or an Oscar de la Renta? Websites, magazines, and newspapers have been fighting about this for months, while the Clinton camp hasn’t let out a murmur on the issue. And apparently, Chelsea had appointments at the studios of both designers yesterday, which isn’t helping the speculation die down. The Daily Beast has a big article today about the debate and in it, they’ve pasted Chelsea’s head atop of gowns by both designers. But, uh, they totally made her into a bobblehead! Seriously, this is some bad Photoshopping. Couldn’t they have figured out the right head and body proportions not to make her look so skeletal? Are anyone’s arms really that thin? And do you care which designer’s dress she is wearing? Either way, I’m sure it will be gorgeous and uber-pricey. [Daily Beast, PopEater] 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”

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

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.
