The Anti-Photoshop Spread

When we look at these photos, all we can think of is how ridiculous the comments from Self Magazine FAIL in every which way in regards to the Kelly Clarkson photoshoot.

Renowned Fashion Photographer Peter Lindbergh decided he had had enough of airbrushing and how it makes women in magazines look like “objects from Mars”. He says “that for years now it has taken a much too big part in how women are being visually defined today. Heartless retouching should not be the chosen tool to represent women in the beginning of this century.”
Lindbergh not being one to comment and stand idly by, photographed supermodels, including Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen, and Amber Valetta, without makeup or excessive retouching (think flyaway hair, a blemish, or a wrinkle in clothing) for the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

And they were GORGEOUS!

Women are too often forced to chase after impossible and unrealistic ideals that they themselves would never normally pursue if they had not had the initial notion planted into their minds in the first place with silly magazine covers depicting ”high-fashion” and the ”ideals of today”.
