They physically moved her bones. They moved her collar bone lower. I hope stuff like this makes girls realize how ridiculous the media is.
Even the ‘before’ picture is unattainable by most women. To begin with, she’s had her makeup and hair styled by professionals with expensive products. She’s also been given a flattering designer outfit, which is most likely altered to perfectly fit her shape. She has also been photographed in a fancy studio with perfect lighting and camera equipment, by an industry professional.
The fact that they would then go on to photoshop her beyond recognition (they even changed the appearance of her fingers, for crying out loud) just further emphasizes the unattainability of the media’s idea of ‘beauty’.
I am thoroughly disgusted by all this.
and its even worse because you know she hates this shit too
I don’t get why people get so pissy about it, just because some magazine company decided to photoshop the model on their front page doesn’t mean they are evil people stuffing false lies down peoples throats. you make a magazine without it, there’s clearly a niche of people who dislike the amount of editing involved but at the end of the day they’re just giving the consumer what they want. surely that’s an appreciable art form, it’s their magazine if you care so much, stop buying them or better yet make your own.
