Debenhams, European Department Store, Won’t Airbrush Lingerie Models Anymore

  • Yesterday, Debenhams, a European department store, announced on Facebook that it is scaling back on airbrushing images of lingerie models, citing a “moral” imperative to portray women’s bodies more naturally. The store also offered an example of how one lingerie model would have been retouched (um, everywhere) with before-and-after photos — see above! [Yahoo]
  • A committee in New Jersey’s Assembly has advanced a bill that would ban licensed therapists from trying to “convert” or “repair” gay minors. It now heads to the NJ Assembly and Senate. [CBS Local]

“Oh my god, I haven’t seen [the new Dior campaign]. That doesn’t look like me at all. I love Photoshop more than anything in the world. Of course it’s Photoshop, people don’t look like that.”

— Oh, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, always coming up with new, ridiculously endearing ways to worm herself even deeper into our hearts. She loves Photoshop! Jen’s Miss Dior ads are stunning, but I love that she’s acknowledging that the otherworldly smooth, velvety skin in the photos is not the same skin she wears on a regular basis. (Undertones of Buffalo Bill? It is what it is.) It spares us all the self-doubt, not to mention the soul-searching trip to Sephora for Dior Airflash Foundation. But on the real, that stuff rules, just sayin’. It’s spray-on. [Crushable]

Look, I know we’ve all done some crazy things for a job. But nothing tops Shirley Hornstein, an erstwhile, according to her Twitter, “Angel Investor and (dare I say) Entrepreneur” (nice random capitalization there, Shirley). To give herself credibility in the tech industry, Hornstein posted several heavily doctored photos online, showing herself hanging with famous notables, including Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg. On her blog, she boasted of working with tech players like iMeem, Nitro PDF and Dropbox.

And she probably would have gotten away with it, too, had she not boasted of working with the wrong guy. Keep reading »

19 Sexy Lingerie Models Whose Boobs Are Mysteriously Missing Nipples

It’s hard out there for a nipple. Or at least, it must be — that’s what we’ve got to assume based on the fact that so many lingerie models seem to be missing theirs these days. As we attempted to shop for sexy V-Day lingerie, we were struck by all of these hapless models, who’ve gone through life (or, ha! at least a lingerie catalog photoshoot) sans nips. So we decided to do some serious investigating to find out where all these nipples have run off to…

There’s no such thing as “too perfect” in the age of Photoshop. Reconstruct eyes, mouths, noses, cheekbones, entire faces? Turn real, blemished human skin into smooth sculpted porcelain? Make full thighs slender, small breasts large, protruding bellies flat? Well, if you can do it, then why not? We’re so accustomed to the image of widespread flawlessness that permeates our pop culture-consumed social climate that our own physical errs seem, frankly, unnatural. If we could apply digital image-altering tools to our flesh-and-bone beings, would we ― and how? “Photoshop in Real Life,” a photo series by Hungarian artist Flóra Borsi, uses satire to explore the darker implications of vanity insofar as we vie to alter ourselves to meet unattainable standards. Check out the rest of the photos after the jump, and more of Flora’s work at her Facebook page. [PetaPixel] Keep reading »

Is nothing sacred? Not even Kate Moss is safe from unrepentant abuse at the hand of the blur tool, and she was practically born of God’s holiest vision. Chilean fashion line Basement, which Moss is apparently the face of, took it upon themselves to be like, “Let’s just put her eyes a little farther over here, and, oh, why don’t we take out the skin and replace it with plastic. Shiny plastic. There, that’s perfect.” Even The Sun thinks this just might be the most airbrushed photoshoot of all time, and you know if The Sun says it, it must be true. [AdWeek]

“My weight was a very big issue when I started. I was then — and am now — a very normal size 10. But that’s not acceptable. Everyone’s aware of it. It’s partly because fashion, film and television have become so interdependent. Increasingly, it’s actresses doing the big fashion advertising campaigns and now there’s no distinction between actresses and models. There’s no way I could ring up a company that was lending me a red carpet dress and say, ‘Do you have it in a 10?’ Because all the press samples are an eight —I would say a small eight. If you want the profile, you have to lose the weight. … It’s difficult because if I refuse to do any magazines at all, my work, I think, would suffer in a very immediate way. But when I appear in these magazines, I know I’m being ‘trimmed’. I’m being airbrushed a lot. And I know that people are accepting those images and are under the impression that that is really how my body looks, that I’m hairless and sexless and weigh 90 lbs. That really worries me. And I really don’t know what to do except talk about it.”

– Romola Garai plays a pioneering woman in journalism on the kickass BBC drama “The Hour” and it turns out she’s just as rad in real life. I find it fascinating that she’s aware she’s being airbrushed in magazines and feels guilty about women who look at her and think it’s the real deal. Photoshop is not going anywhere, so we all have to make peace with it somehow; it should not be too much to ask that Photoshop does not change the fundamental way we look. If I were a celebrity, I feel like I’d be okay with having a zit airbrushed off or something. But 20 lbs? That’s a bit much. [Telegraph UK]
