Guess Who? Do You Recognize The Famous Face On The Cover Of Harper’s Bazaar Russia?

Honestly, it took us forever to figure out the famous lady on the cover of the Russian edition of Harper’s Bazaar.

Israel Passes New Legislation Regarding Models In Advertising

The battle against photo manipulation, namely within the realm of fashion, is an ongoing one with no end in sight. It seems like more fuel is constantly being fed to the fire: a (stunning) size 10 model depicted as a waifish size zero here, an errant penis there. England was the first to ban an

Photoshop Failure: Trouble In J. Crew-Land

Take a gander at this J. Crew online catalog image (that’s since been removed) and try and guess what might have happened here. Is it a hot dog bun that the model was surreptitiously hiding in his pants until the right moment? A poor assistant’s fingers that somehow escaped the airbrusher’s skilled eyes? Or something

Nude Man Accidentally Helps Sell French Retailer’s Kids’ T-Shirts

As the old saying goes, the problem with doing a children’s fashion photo shoot on a beach in France is that you never know when a naked man might wander in the shot. What? They don’t say that? Oh.

Evening Quickies: Taylor Swift Cover Girl Ad Accused Of Egregious Photoshopping

Uh oh. A group called the National Advertising Division has accused CoverGirl of Photoshopping Taylor Swift’s NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara ad to the high heavens, enhancing Swift’s lashes postproduction in a way that portrays the product inaccurately.

New Software Can Tell You How Much Pics Have Been Photoshopped

Surprise, surprise: basically all of the photos we see in the media today are Photoshopped in some way. Lighting is tweaked; blemishes, pores, and cellulite vanish; and wrinkles smooth into oblivion.

Photoshop Fail: The Case Of Beyonce’s Disappearing Legs

My friends and I have always loved Beyonce’s figure — and specifically her thighs — because she has more of a real body than most super stick-thin celebs. We call her legs tree trunk legs because they’re muscular as hell. You’d figure all that dancing and bootyshaking she does means her stems are pretty strong.

A Douche With A Douche

The dudes over at Slacktory used Photoshop to remove the iPhones from people’s self-portraits and replaced them with a variety of random objects.

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.
