Rosario Dawson On Airbrushing: “None Of Us Look Like That!”

“Iā€™m constantly telling girls all the time everything is airbrushed, everything is retouched to the point it’s not even asked. None of us look like that. … It’s a form of violence in the way that we look at women and the way we expect them to look and be for what sake? Not for health, survival, not for enjoyment of life, but just so you could look pretty.”

ā€”Rosario Dawson talks body image and airbrushing in Shape magazine. She also said that she lost a lot of weight to play Mimi in “Rent” because her character was supposed to be a dope addict with AIDS. But instead of telling her she looked sick, the actress said she got tons of compliments. “I remember everyone asking what did you do to get so thin? You looked great,” she said. “I looked emaciated.” Oh, Rosario, I love you so. [CNN] Keep reading »

Breaking News: Julia Roberts and model Christy Turlington — both women in their 40s — are not the dewy, fresh-faced nymphs these ads for Maybelline and Lancome would have you believe. In fact, these airbrushed within-an-inch-of-their-lives ads have gotten both cosmetics companies in trouble with the United Kingdom’s Advertising Standards Authority, which regulates truth in advertising.

Ditto regarding Lancome’s ad, which the ASA claims did not “accurately illustrate what effect the product could achieve.” Further, the ASA couldn’t conclusively determine whether digital retouching had been used to alter the image.

In this case, this guy’s cellphone was ‘shopped out and replaced with a lovely package of Summer’s Eve. If the douche fits… (Warning, the link isn’t entirely SFW.) [Slacktory] Keep reading »

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 »

Not Buying It: Sugar Daddy Dating Site’s Shoddy Photoshop

The thing that cracks me up the most about these ads for Sugar Sugar, an online dating site that matches younger women with older, weathy men, is that these are so obviously stock images of young couples. The guys’ hair has just been badly photoshopped to look grey. These dudes, to quote one blogger, look “very (very) premature gray-blue … with the skin of a 26-year-old” — likely not representative of the actual sugar daddies the site has to offer.
