Obviously, Urban Outfitters is an affordable trendsetting retailer, but did you know they are also MAGICIANS? Photoshop Disasters came across this image on Urban’s website in which the model dons Silence & Noise’s Ikat Dress whilst hovering. That is some David Blaine s**t right there. But seriously, Urban, I would have thought that dress was pretty damn cute even without the magical powers. Break out the bag of tricks for your more hideous offerings next time, ‘kay?

Remember that iconic photo of President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the White House Situation Room watching the raid in Pakistan which killed Osama bin Laden? (Top photo!) Well, a conservative Hasidic Jewish newspaper in Brooklyn for Hasids completely edited Hillary Clinton and the other woman in the Situation Room out of the photo. (See bottom photo!) They’re gone entirely! It’s a Situation Room full of dudes.
In Hasidic culture, unrelated men and women do not socialize with each other; in some communities, men and women don’t even work alongside each other. Some say Hillary Clinton and counterterrorism analyst Audrey Tomasen were Photoshopped out because the Hasids didn’t want to depict women in positions of authority or because the women mixing with men with whom they are not related is sexually suggestive. (Hillary’s pantsuits are so sexually suggestive.) The newspaper, Der Zeitung, has not commented on to why they erased the women from the pics. But who cares what their reason is? Erasing two women from a moment that will go down in the history books — that they experienced — is sexism, plain and simple.

Take a close look at this picture. Notice something … amiss? Maybe a limb? We’re going to go out on one and say that this model was probably born with two, but Ann Taylor’s keen Photoshop wizards seem to have made it suddenly disappear. [PSD] Keep reading »
A few months ago, we told you that the makeup brand Rimmel London had signed Zooey Deschanel as their new spokesmodel. So when we saw this ad for Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lipstick, we were like, “Weird, who is this chick? Where’s Zooey?” Oh, but this is Zooey, after some serious Photoshopping. Rendering your famous spokesmodel completely unrecognizable — not to mention a wee bit wall-eyed! — doesn’t seem like a very brilliant business move. [Styleite] Keep reading »
Photoshop is out of control, people. These days, y’all should just assume any model’s thighs are twice as thick as they appear. That’s why I’m loving these completely unretouched ads from the beauty line Make Up For Ever. In fact, these pics have even been certified by a notary! Each of the models is naturally gorgeous and had her makeup professionally applied, of course. But I still love any and all proof that women can look this ah-maz-ing without airbrushing.

I dunno about you ladies, but when my inner thighs touch, I feel, like, totally disgusting. Frankly, if you can’t toss at least a softball through them at all times, it’s diet time, amIright?! As for this Victoria’s Secret model, well, the way she’s been Photoshopped just makes me want to go bowling. [Victoria's Secret via The Gloss] Keep reading »
Holly Madison wants us to know that she isn’t perfect. And so she allowed Life and Style magazine to publish a photo of her in a bikini without retouching. I don’t see much in the cellulite department, but Holly insists that it’s there. “I have cellulite—and had it even when I was at my absolute thinnest. I’m never not going to have cellulite,” she said. “People need to just accept that it’s there.” Good point, but I’m actually more interested in that scar on her lower back that looks suspiciously like a butterfly tramp stamp that’s been lasered off.

Posing for photos sans retouching has become a big celebrity trend. And I gotta give it up for them—there is something reassuring about seeing that famously gorgeous ladies don’t just come that way and understanding that there’s an entire industry that makes people look the way they do on glossy pages. After the jump, more stars without retouching.
How sad! Model Marisa Miller appears to have lost her arm in a tragic airbrushing accident while wearing Victoria’s Secret’s “Sexiest Polo.” [Victoria's Secret via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Warning: this image might put you in a trance. On one hand, I’m glad to see they didn’t butcher the original image by shaving inches off Katy’s arms and legs. But they sure seemed to have pumped up her ta-tas huh? But the hand! The hand! I cannot look away! Keep reading »
What’s that? Wrinkles on the cover of a national magazine? Could it be?!?! Jane Fonda, looking fabulous at 73, posed on the cover of Good Housekeeping (you know, that magazine your grandma reads?) sans airbrushing. “I feel sorry for these young actresses coming up,” Fonda told the magazine, continuing:
“If they have a dimple on their buttock, there’s a close-up of it in some gossip magazine. So there’s a cult of perfection. Consequently all the young people who emulate celebrities think they have to look perfect and that’s so destructive.”
Granted this is observation is coming from a woman with plastic surgery who is famous, in part, for her line of aerobics videos. But hey, I’ll take my feminists in Hollywood where I can get them. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
