I am not one to condone random acts of destruction, however! I was
unable to hide my smirk when I saw this shop window with its
fractured glass, I guess someone has had enough of the media
portrayal of women.

I don't know, but I do have to say that's quite literally the most horrifying photo Ive ever seen on the cover of Vogue.

I'm by no means a big girl but that's just *scary*, yo.

A great role model for the school 30 seconds away!

bronxelf says:

I just have to wonder if that's what this girl looks like *on camera*.... How thin she *really* is, in *person*.

They don't lie when they say a camera adds 10 lbs.

Steve says:

It doesn't look like she has been eating any cameras!

or anything else... in quite some time.

Look, just because *most women need to lose weight* doesn't mean you should take it out on *those who've managed to look after themselves*.

*exits, pursued by a bear

That was sarcasm, right?

Don't worry, the bear will sort him out.

Rich says:

Did you really need to ask that?

Camera may add 10lbs, but Photoshop will remove as much as you like..

bronxelf says:

Rich-- I'm just makings sure, is all. Just one of those bad text moments. :)

mat-- I really hope that's just p-shop, but I really, really worry that it's not.

elf - I'm pretty sure that we don't see un-shopped images in magazines any more. Of anything.

see here

bronxelf says:

No no, I know that all images are 'shopped. It's just I didn't know that 'shop was being used for that particular purpose.

I did a piece for a big corporate magazine on a young flamenco dancer last summer. Had a stunning photo of her - might post it one day - and they photoshopped her waist so it was even smaller. Didn't need it - honest - and she's a dancer not a model

.. and what B'elf said in her first post

It's not an effect, it was on the outside window of a hair salon in Finsbury Park.

Mat-- I just saw the link you posted. That's *fascinating*... Holy CRAP.

I used to feel guilty for correcting color balance and hair color on photos-- but goodness gracious I've NEVER 'shopped an image of myself like *THAT* (or ANYTHING* resembling that.) Holy COW.
