Photoshop Fail: Vogue Wonkifies Kristen Stewart

Vogue may be the biggest fashion magazine in the world, with the most talented photographers and retouchers at their disposal, but even they are capable of tragic Photoshop butchery. Poor cover girl Kristen Stewart. She’s been rendered almost unrecognizable in one of the photographs featured in the February issue. Surely Anna Wintour didn’t approve this?!

Some Unphotoshopped Madonna Pics For Your Analytical Entertainment

Anytime you hear about un-Photoshopped celeb pics, you assume you’re in for a scandalous treat. We love these gossip items because they make us feel better about ourselves by showing us that famous people aren’t actually flawless demi-gods. Apparently, however, in the case of Madonna, she still looks pretty damn fine without photoshop magic. Here, for your viewing pleasure, some pre-Photoshop pics from her much talked about Dolce & Gabbana campaign. And we must say … we can only hope we look this good at 52 years old. After the jump, some more photos for you to closely inspect with fascination (because we know you will). [StyleFrizz] Keep reading »

We’re With Vintage Cybill On Her Anti-Photoshopping Stance


Remember the late-’90s show “Cybill,” starring Cybill Shepherd? Here’s a clip from our favorite episode in which Cybill models for a shoe campaign only to find a billboard of herself with an incredibly Photoshopped body. Outraged about her lack of curves, she and her pal sneak up to the billboard at night to paint in her shape. This quote takes the cake: “This billboard is telling women that they can’t be fabulous in their forties unless they haven’t eaten since their twenties!” [YouTube] Keep reading »

Marion Cotillard On Vanity Fair Sans Retouching

Some say French beauty Marion Cotillard looks tired and haggard without retouching on the cover of Vanity Fair, but I think she looks like a real beauty with a real sense of vulnerability. Peep the photos from her spread inside the mag and let us know what you think of Marion without the power of Photoshop. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Why A “No Airbrushing” Policy Is Good, But Not Good Enough

JACOB, a Canadian clothing brand, announced last week they are “committed to no longer alter the bodies of its models” in ad campaigns.

I don’t mean to knock JACOB, because they are at least making steps to be part of the solution. Keep reading »

Bloomingdale’s Has Just The Dress For Your Wonky Elbow!

Sometimes I think Jezebel is a little too anal in their war on Photoshop (for example, I disagree that Rolling Stone gave the women of “Mad Men” “brand new torsos”); however, sometimes the blog hunts down some truly gross examples of retouching gone wrong. Like this photo from Bloomingdales.com of a model wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg dress which, apparently, is the height of fashion for women with bizarrely dislocated elbows. Yikes!

Shizz-Talker Says Kimora Lee Simmons Fired From Baby Phat Over Airbrushing Costs

Kimora Lee Simmons has made it seem like her departure from her line, Baby Phat, is amicable, but gossips are blabbing to Page Six that Miss Thang was “unceremoniously dumped” for bad behavior. “Kimora was going over-budget. She’d pay herself a fee to be in the ads, plus she paid her children fees to appear in ads,” a source claims. But that’s not all! “It costs thousands of dollars to airbrush her because she’s a size 10. Plus, they spent a ton of money on body doubles. They would shoot another model in the clothes, and take Kimora’s head and put in on her body.” Wait, so they used body doubles and airbrushed her? That doesn’t make sense. Get your story straight! Also, not that I’m disagreeing Kimora is a hellion, but isn’t “she’s a size 10″ the most cliché way to dis/fat-shame a notoriously vain and self-absorbed ex-model? [New York Post] Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston Without Retouching

UPDATE: So, the people who own the unretouched photos asked us to take them down, so we did, because we had to, but in the meantime, you can still see them here.

By now everyone knows that the photographs that appear in magazines are retouched, but sometimes it takes seeing an unretouched photo of one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars to realize just how much. Behold, outtakes from a photoshoot Jennifer Aniston did with Harper’s Bazaar UK in 2006. Okay, so the expression on her face is clearly mid-laugh or something, so it’s not really, um, attractive, but Jen looks like what, I dunno, I would look like after 10 hours in the sun with sand encrusted in my hair. What do you think? Do you think the retouching looks over the top? Are you surprised by the differences? [ONTD] Keep reading »
