Other: Why Some People Need To Be Kept Away From Airbrushes, Part II

Take a look at the picture in this article on the (seriously long overdue) backlash against retouching in ad photos.

Seriously, I can't understand how the clothes Lollipop Woman is wearing can be considered high fashion. Scandalous! Maybe that's what Ralph Lauren is really embarrassed about. I could get that outfit for $10 at a flea market.

(I love this commentary on the whole bullshit retouching thing.)

Forwarded to my sister, my pregnant cousin, my high-school friend who's a mom in Seattle, my high-school sweetheart, her friend who is also my friend, my friend-whom-I-never-have-met who's a physicist, my FWINHM who's a geophysicist, and every other woman I know, plus all of the men, as an afterthought.

I will not post this link to Facebook unless you give me permission.

Gee, I don't know. How many friends do you have on Facebook? I think you've already covered all the bases.

Heheh, that Ralph Lauren cover is so distorted it looks like a self-parody. I think we need a version of Poe's Law for creepy fashion mag photoshopping.
