I always roll my eyes when people get upset if they hear the figures portrayed in modeling photoshoots and catalogue ads referred to as “fake” because, yes, what you are seeing in magazines is fake. Barring the fact that the styling alone usually involves a lot of heavy duty work done by an entire team of professionals who have each put countless hours into specializing in their field to create looks that are completely unsustainable if you intended to leave the house and go about an average day, and the fact that the clothes are often draped on the figures in ways that look great from only one angle and ridiculous from every other
The models are then photoshopped to hell to remove all the pores and fine lines and completely change the dimensions of their bodies and skew their proportions to elongate their skeleton in ways that no healthy human is actually shaped, but can appear compositionally pleasing in that single still image with the specific pose they’re striking. The bodies are so drastically altered you get cases like this model
who in reality was fired by Ralph Lauren because they considered her real body too heavyset for their brand.
The people you see in magazines are fake. The people who are literally in those photos do not even look like the people in those photos. I promise you the imaginary poreless, unblemished, elongated mannequin people who have been artfully crafted out of photos of real humans do not get their feelings hurt if you call them “fake”.
So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.
Wow this is so fucked up
