What’s worse: Falling for weight loss supplement claims, or employing the same bogus tricks they use for their before and after photos on your own?
We’re fearful our favorite magazines are going to be overrun with identical models exhibiting more mutated proportions than Barbie.
Something’s not right about this photo for their Dorothy Perkins collaboration. And by ‘something’ we mean pretty much everything.
Photo editors have been known to harbor vendettas against models’ limbs. Sometimes they’ll haphazardly gouge parts out of thighs, sometimes they’ll amputate them entirely, and sometimes they’ll take a shoulder and move it somewhere it doesn’t belong. But was Moda Operandi’s Adobe whiz overzealous with the eraser tool on this particular image? You be the judge.
Back in March, Israel passed a law that bans underweight models from working, and requires publications to disclose all airbrushing. On Tuesday, the ban finally went into effect.
No one was safe from the Photoshop monster this year — not celebs, not models, not Kate Middleton, certainly not the Kardashians, and bizarrely, not even animals.
Do you notice anything missing in Coco Rocha‘s Longchamp ad?
Sometimes Photoshop fails are offensive, like when a company hacks away at an already-skinny model’s waist, whittles their leg into a veritable twig, digitally removes their entire ribcage, or excises every last woman from their catalog. Other times, however, they’re just plain funny, like with this picture from J. Crew‘s e-commerce website, which ostensibly shows off the label’s casual chic Jackie cardigan.
The U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority has banned Christian Dior‘s Diorshow New Look Mascara ad featuring Natalie Portman for overzealous airbrushing and exaggerating the product’s results.
We’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to models being Photoshopped into oblivion. But this time it wasn’t a human that was completely botched by the PS monster. Because the photo editors over at American Apparel wanted to shake things up, this time they mutilated a horse.
Oh, IKEA. We love you for allowing us to fully furnish our first college apartment. We love you for the free ferry ride to Red Hook and the cafeteria filled with funny things like lingonberry juice. We don’t even mind the billions of components and endlessly confusing instructions every you sell seems to have (ok fine, we’ll hire someone to put the really tricky stuff together). But this we definitely do not love.
And yet another model Victoria’s Secret model gets maimed by Photoshop!
Well, this is awkward. After the blogosphere ooh’d and ahh’d over Karlie Kloss‘ banging body in her latest, semi-nude Numéro shoot, it turns out the glossy’s art department didn’t feel quite the same way. Today, the version of the spread that will appear in the magazine itself has been released, and unlike the one that came from photographer Greg Kadel‘s studio yesterday, Kloss’ ribs and sternum have been smoothed entirely out of a shot.
Obviously there is some serious post-production magic going on in the campaign videos for Lady Gaga‘s “Fame” fragrance — after all, even Gaga’s money can’t buy a crew of palm-sized worker men — but it looks like the Photoshop work doesn’t just extend to the surreal elements of the film.
Doutzen Kroes is, as Janis Ian might say, a regulation hottie. But that doesn’t stop Victoria’s Secret from doing some heavy Photoshop work on her swimwear photos before they make their way to the retailer’s website and catalog.
The ad for America’s Next Top Model: College Edition is out, and it’s pretty bad. In fact, it features three major FAILS.
While magazines like Seventeen are easing off the Photoshop and pledging to keep models looking as natural as possible, retailers like Banana Republic apparently are not. Herewith: we present the case of the missing kneecap.
