Honestly, it took us forever to figure out the famous lady on the cover of the Russian edition of Harper’s Bazaar. She barely, barely looks like herself, thanks to copious amounts of airbrushing and (perhaps) plastic surgery. Also, a strange lipstick color. Still not sure who the famous face is? Click for the answer after the jump!

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 advertisement featuring a malnourished model last year, and it would seem that Israel took notes on the subject. The country gave the go-ahead to a new law on Monday, a mandate that forces all advertisements to explicitly admit to the usage of digital imaging in order to make a model appear slimmer. Liad Gil-Har, an assistant to one of the law’s sponsors, said, “We want to break the illusion that the model we see is real.” Keep reading »
Take a gander at this J. Crew online catalog image (that’s since been removed) and try and guess what might have happened here.

This hilarious (and painfully accurate) video reimagines Photoshop as a beauty product that can erase acne, whiten teeth, make you skinny, and even change your race. Over a pulsing techno track, models pose and flip their hair while the narrator explains “Just one application of photoshop can give you results so dramatic they’re almost unrealistic.” Says creator Jesse Rosten: “I was watching TV one sleepless night and stumbled upon an infomercial for some beauty product. The commercial showed before and after portraits, that to my eye, looked like the same photo just photoshopped. I laughed to myself. Then I made this video.”
The tagline sums it up: “This commercial isn’t real, and neither are society’s standards of beauty.” Powerful stuff. [Fotoshop by Adobé]
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. Well, French online fashion retailer La Redoute managed to miss a random sun worshipper’s exposed cock’n'balls in a photo advertising kids’ T-shirts. (Above, I have helpfully indicated the aforementioned French peen using Photoshop, a tool La Redoute might need to re-familiarize themselves with.) Les oopsies! [The Gloss]
Really, to appear in Vogue, all you need is fabulous clothes and great styling — legs are really just superfluous. At least that’s what this editorial featuring Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta tells us. [Photoshop Disasters]
