Photoshop Of Horrors: Even Men Are Photoshopped Into Monsters Sometimes

Photoshop Of Horrors: Even Men Are Photoshopped Into Monsters Sometimes

It’s so common to see women on magazines Photoshopped into some kind of chitinous, spindly, segmented monster that we don’t always look twice unless something truly bizarre is going on (like this model who could destroy Tokyo in her high-low dress, or this picture of Megan Fox Photoshopped to look like another woman entirely). But it’s not just women’s magazines that are going crazy with the office copy of CS Elements, the men are at it as well. Sometimes it takes a really ridiculous monster man to remind us of that. Read more on The Gloss…

Why Throw A Bouquet At Your Wedding When You Could Throw Cats?

Brides Throwing Cats

If brides were to toss kittens into the crowd for all the single ladiez, I would actually make an effort to grab it. Bouquets, on the other hand, are best handled with a subtle side-step away from whatever direction they’re going in. No cats were harmed in the making of this meme, but it does serve as additional evidence in the case for Photoshopping a cat into every picture ever. So much better! [Brides Throwing Cats]

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE: we can finally fucking give up. You can forget about agonizing juice cleanses, dieting, exercising (I shudder at the thought) … hell, forget about every single obsessive thought you’ve ever had regarding body image. Yes, ALL OF THEM. J Brand is here to save us all, provided we all have somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 to $300 to spare on a fine pair of “Photo Ready” jeans. Quoth Grazia:

It’s an amazing patented technological fabric which basically creates a photoshop’d silhouette, giving the slimmest, smoothest appearance with a unique holding power that is super comfortable and never sags.

That’s right: a “photoshop’d” silhouette. The future is here, and it’s way thinner than you. [The Gloss]

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 »

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…
