Ellen Spoofs Target, Allure’s Beauty Channel, and a Plus-Size Prom Dress Shortage

Ellen DeGeneres and Tanya Marie Keller, a model from Target’s offensive Photoshop ads, do a sendup of the Photoshop fail. Keller breezes out looking like Stretch Armstrong wearing abnormally long prosthetic arms and tries not to break character while maintaining that there was no Photoshopping in the making of her image for three whole minutes. Best is her fumbling to lift a coffee mug from the table, and offering to lift her dress to prove to Ellen that the chunk removed from between her legs is real. Ellen stops her because it’s a civilized show for civilized people. (ELLE)

  • Allure launched a beauty channel yesterday that will try to compete with YouTube-famous beauty bloggers by feeling “raw and unrehearsed.” For a recent vid, a real person uses ten products, a tissue and a q-tip to master a beautiful smoky eye. When she announces “this is ticklish,” that’s probably what they meant by raw and unrehearsed. (Fashionista)
