Since being skinny is that new social standard everyone (and soon their dogs) is so keen on, you’d say that Photoshop and magazines photos go together like rain and umbrella. Ella ella.
But no! here’s Love to teach us how to really Photoshop! Remember that first Love cover with Beth Ditto? Weeeeell, that cover was Photoshopped en plus! Love’s editor, Katie Grand, demanded that they make Beth look bigger on the cover! Isn’t that pure aesthetic bliss? (via, photo via)
Apparantly big or fat needs to be HUGE FAT. ENORMOUS. Fashion is about extremes isn’t it? There can be nothing in between like “normal”. Ah well, museums have wonderful art-work portrayed women looking like Beth and Adele (a fave of mine). Adele is very pretty imo. Not to speak about her singing talent.
I recommend to read the Sunday Times interview with Beth. It’s interesting. Sunday Times is a pleasure on holidays in the UK at home I read Sunday Times online regurarly.
It is really not a shock that they want to make Beth Ditto far more Rubenesque than she is. Fashion is about extremes and if they are going to put a large lass on the cover of their magazine she better be a big as possible. Just an observation Ms. Ditto sure likes to take off her clothes a lot. I like her hair its cute.
Love this cover, pure artwork. I think she looks gorgeous on it as well.
Where is her niples?
No way! They really photoshopped her to make her look bigger? That’s just as sick as photoshopping skinny people to make them even skinnier. Why turn people into a more exaggerated, grotesque version of themselves? If they’re not quite right they way they are naturally, the editors have no call putting them on the cover!
M.B.J. that’s a very good question. Why turn people into a more exaggerated, grotesque version of themselves?
I know! Yet it’s what magazine editors continue to do to all their cover stars. It seems that nobody measures up naturally -not even models!
