Has Photo-Shopping Gone Too Far?

 

Above left is  Demi Moore, modeling for Helena Rubenstein’s 2012 campaign and to the right  is a recent candid of Demi Moore. While I agree we all have our bad days and look better when we have had time to make ourselves up. This photo shows how far beauty advertising has gone from the truth. I am not against a touch up here or there to clean up a picture but when the pictures are so glaringly different that falls into false advertising.

In comparison Intelligent Life did something shocking had their cover model Cate Blanchett appear Photoshop free!

March/ April issue of Intelligent Life Photo: INTELLIGENT LIFE

While Cate’s un-retouched photo shows her wrinkles it also shows a real live beautiful older woman.

The magazine’s editor, Tim de Lisle, explained the reasoning behind the un-retouched image in his editor’s letter: “When other magazines photograph actresses, they routinely end up running heavily Photoshopped images, with every last wrinkle expunged. Their skin is rendered so improbably smooth that, with the biggest stars, you wonder why the photographer didn’t just do a shoot with their waxwork.”

 

What do you think? Do you like the perfected Photoshop look on models? Or should we have a limit to how much retouching can be done on product adverts?

Demi Moore photoshops 20 years off her life in these new fragrance ads!

Here are some new pictures of Demi Moore, modeling for Helena Rubenstein. They’re causing quite a stir online today, for the unbelievable amount of photoshop that was done on the pictures. Demi easily looks 20 years younger. The 49-year-old actress doesn’t look a day over 25 in these pictures.

Before you get defensive, we’re happy to see Demi Moore back to work, and she is beautiful. We know that, you know that, everybody knows that, and that’s why we ask this question.

The star’s latest ads for Helena Rubinstein’s 2012 campaign have been released, and all we can focus our attention on is the massive amount of Photoshopping going on.

Let’s see, there’s absolutely no wrinkles or facial lines whatsoever, her nose and chin seem a different shape and suddenly, her tan has vanished. Yes, people always notice these things.

We understand that all ads and widely distributed photos get some retouching done, it’s part of the biz, but it’s freakin’ Demi Moore. How much do you really have to fix?

I hate – hate – hate – the way print advertisements are going these days. You can’t trust anyone or anything anymore, can you? Products that promise this – or that – and you get it home, try it on your own, and it doesn’t live up to the hype! And these pictures – that’s not even Demi’s real face! They’ve airbrushed every single flaw off her face. It’s unbelievable!

NEW PICS: Demi Moore looks flawless in Harper’s Bazaar!

Demi Moore graces the February cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and the accompanying photo shoot is absolutely stunning! Yes, it’s photoshopped like crazy – but either way – she looks pretty unfreakingbelievable for her age! (I appreciate the fact that she admits she looks too skinny these days.)

Demi is promoting her new show, ‘The Conversation’, which will appear on Lifetime. The show promises to  “feature strikingly frank discussions with A-listers,” such as prominent women discussing “the universal themes in women’s lives” i.e. relationships, body image, sex, career. So far the women lined up are Gwyneth PaltrowLady GagaAlicia Keys and Jane Fonda.

On Body Image: “I have had a love-hate relationship with my body. When I’m at the greatest odds with my body, it’s usually because I feel my body’s betraying me, whether that’s been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn’t eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn’t get my body to do what I wanted it to do. I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin – thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, ‘You’re too thin, and you don’t look good.’”

On Abandonment & The Unknown: “I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, ‘Only children can be abandoned. Adults can’t be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don’t have a choice.’ So I started to rethink. ‘Okay, it’s not that. What’s the underlying thread that really scares me?’ I think what scares me is not having the courage to reach my full potential . . . which means that I would allow fear, insecurity, and doubt to rule me and that I would ask for only a little of what is actually there for me. It would mean that I would be settling.

“And so for me, it’s not just about reaching my potential in terms of my career. It goes more to the idea of being whole, of loving oneself. And I think there is no way to reach your fullest potential if you don’t really find the love of yourself. If I were to answer it just kind of bold-faced, I would say what scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved. That there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.

“And that I wasn’t wanted here in the first place, so the fight against gravity for me is to find that love for myself that gives me the courage to reach my fullest potential, to actually receive this abundance that’s really there. I also think that what scares you goes back to being a kid; what really scares you is not knowing. What scares me the most is not knowing and accepting that just about everything is not in my control. That makes me feel unsafe.”

On Comfort: “I think being comfortable is perhaps overrated. I think a better word than comfortable is accepting. Accepting weaknesses and strengths and being more able to celebrate all of it as a whole package. Well, it indicates an illusion as opposed to the reality, which is that we don’t live in black and white – we live in the gray – and that, as you’re saying, stepping out of the familiar, the known, the comfortable, allows us to become more whole and complete. So to answer the question ‘Have I become more comfortable with myself as a woman?’ I would say that I have in the sense of valuing myself, certainly more than I did when I was a teenager.”

On Her Idea Of Freedom: “Letting go of the outcome. Truly being in the moment. Not reflecting on the past. Not projecting into the future. That’s freedom. Not caring more about what other people think than what you think. That’s freedom. To not be defined by your wounds. Somebody wrote something to me that said, ‘Don’t let your wounds make you become someone you’re not.’ That’s really powerful.”

Interesting!

See Demi Moore’s NEW Ann Taylor ads!

While going through what could be the most difficult time in her life, Demi Moore’s new Ann Taylor ads have been released.

She’s in the middle of a nasty public marriage crisis with husband Ashton Kutcher. Details of her husband’s alleged affair keep coming forward.

But at least she looks amazing in these new Ann Taylor ads for the Holiday 2011 campaign!

The 48-year-old looks happy and ethereal as she poses for famed fashion photographer Norman Jean Roy in a Nordic Winter Wonderland setting for the photo shoot.

In one snap, the brunette beauty lounges on a fur-lined recliner looking at the camera with a wide grin as she models a luxe faux chinchilla stole, a chandelier necklace, and tweed pants.

With a youthful glow and hardly a wrinkle on her complexion, she looks nowhere near her age in the chic ensemble.

Cuddled up in a beige fur-lined jacket and sparkly miniskirt, Demi shows off her slender legs in another snap as she is surrounded by snow-laden Christmas trees.

The actress also flaunts her slender figure in fitted jeans and an open-neck white shirt as she perches on a stool.

Behind-the-scenes snaps of the actress at work have also been revealed.

Demi is seen getting touched up by a make-up artist and hair stylist as she reads from a notebook in a cream lace miniskirt and red blouse.

The Striptease star also reviews her images in between takes with the photographer.

This is the second time the actress has featured in the designer’s campaigns.

She was also shot by fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier for the company’s Fall 2011 campaign.

Demi’s newest shoot will feature in this year’s December magazines and the actress has said that she is thrilled to continue the partnership with the brand.

‘It has been a true pleasure to continue my collaboration with Ann Taylor,’ she said.

‘The energy and enthusiasm behind the evolution of this iconic brand is remarkable, and being a part of that has been a wonderful creative experience. The new Ann Taylor is so chic, and I personally love their Holiday collection.’
