I found some interesting photos the other day when I was looking for Photoshop actions. These are, obviously, pictures of celebrities before and after Photoshop.
I always knew that celebrity photographs where highly edited, but I was a little stunned to see the extent of it.
I was a actually angry when I saw the before and after of Kourtney Kardashian right after having her son. As if you aren't vulnerable enough about your body image after having a baby, but then to be slapped with a picture like that...so completely unrealistic. She went from a plus size/obviously still had a baby belly to a svelte, thin little figure. They cut like an entire half off of her front. Its disappointing that "stars" cant be comfortable enough in their own skin to just rock their own, real bodies. Its sort of a disgrace to us as a culture.
I dont even really know what to say about this one. Madonna is getting so old. Its sad, actually to see how "average" she looks without all that crazy, over the top editing.
What do you think, is it time for Madonna to hang up the leotards? Is it ok that we are constantly fed these unattainable and unrealistic images of beauty? What is beauty if the things that we aim for aren't even real?
