I’ve been wanting to write a blog about celebrity airbrushing gone wrong for quite some time now. Whenever I am watching television or reading magazines, the first thing I check out are the spray tans and how bad some of them are sometimes–even on celebrities! While compiling some info for my latest blog, I instead became infatuated with another type of celebrity airbrushing gone wrong – but this kind is Photoshop airbrushing.
It really is amazing to know that even the perfect bodies get airbrushed in Hollywood….More than amazing, it is actually kind of sad. Most of the over-airbrushing instances I found are actresses and supermodels – most already thought to have the perfectly shaped bodies – but print and online fashion editors often take these already-perfect bodies and contort them to make them thinner and thinner. Here are a few of the disturbing airbrushing photos I found – but to see the whole spread, click here. If these kinds of bodies are scrutinized, it is no wonder why so many American girls feel the need to be skinnier, prettier, and better. Hey, Hollywood! How about instead of overly airbrushing models, we embrace the fact that women and humans, in general, ALL come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and shapes?! Is it not okay to just be ourselves anymore?
