retouching Page 1
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 squeaky wheel really does get the grease. After asking its readers for their opinions about what role Photoshop should play in creating the images in magazines, the people at Glamour have decided to take a stand against overzealous retouching in the photos they publish.
Yesterday we wrote a post wondering whether or not Glamour had retouched its trio of bikini clad cover girls, also known as Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Brooklyn Decker, and plus-size supermodel Crystal Renn. We e-mailed Glamour for comment after our post went up and now Glamour’s editor in chief Cindi Leive has responded.
Apparently it’s the month for nudity. First Emmanuelle Chriqui, Kara DioGuardi and Catherine Zeta-Jones stripped down for Allure, and now Kim Kardashian, Joy Bryant, and photographer Amanda de Cadenet stripped down for the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
Everyone and their mother has an opinion on retouching magazines — and now Fergie has weighed in. Fergie is Elle magazine’s May cover star — which coincides nicely with the launch of her first fragrance, Outspoken by Fergie. To celebrate the cover as well as her fragrance, Elle threw the Black Eyed Peas singer a party at New York’s Crosby Hotel, where she spoke to WWD about airbrushing in magazines.
