This Photoshop Fail is Quite a Stretch

Models are known for having “legs for days” but this latest photo-shop fail is taking that saying to the extreme.

Online retailer, OASAP, was advertising a “Sexy Open Back And Cutout Dress” for $75. But it’s not the sexy dress that caught our eye, it’s the model’s ridiculously long legs. To accept this woman’s lower half as unretouched would be, well, a stretch. No one seemed to care. The dress sold out despite the Photoshop fail.

But is Photoshopping and airbrushing going too far? One magazine says yes. In fact, Verily, a fashion and lifestyle magazine aimed at women 18-35 does not alter any images whatsoever. Imagine that?! Verily states: “Whereas other magazines artificially alter images in Photoshop to achieve the so-called ideal body type or leave a maximum of three wrinkles, Verily never alters the body or face structure of the Verily models.”

They believe in celebrating real women. They even have a section called “Runway to Realway” which shows what a woman would actually look like in designer threads.

I love this concept and find it refreshing; to showcase women in their natural form. No artificial beauty added.  It’s time we brush up on what real beauty is.

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
