Every magazine seems to be working on a weight issue these first months of the new year. Take for instance the Australian edition of Marie Claire. Would you have given it any real thought if there wasn’t for this incredibly beautiful cover with Miss Universe 2004, Jennifer Hawkins?
I respectfully admit I most certainly wouldn’t have! Jennifer Hawkins bares it all for Marie Claire February 2010! Wearing only makeup, she makes the no-Photoshop statement of this year’s debut! (the story continues right after the jump)
Jennifer Hawkins is not your average catwalk model, no sir! She’s svelte enough to make it into the models ranks but there’s more to her than bones and skin (luckily!). Her Marie Claire statement honors the Butterfly Foundation (which helps Australian with eating disorders), posing entirely without photoshop retouches (you can see the signs of minor dimples formations on her thighs).
Why they didn’t go for normal women instead of – true, not skinny, but still – unearthly good looking former Miss Universe? Maybe because they also need to sell the magazine in order to spread the message? Would you have bought it if there was a regular Jane Doe on the cover? (via 1, 2)
