Julia Roberts Ad Banned Because of Excessive Airbrushing!

Julia Roberts‘ L’Oréal advertisement for Lancôme has been banned in the United Kingdom for excessive airbrushing.

A Maybelline campaign featuring Christy Turlington was also pulled.

The watchdog Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) upheld complaints from politician Jo Swinson, who argues against “overly perfected and unrealistic images” of women in advertisements.

Roberts’ ad promotes Teint Miracle foundation, and was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino. Turlington’s is for an anti-ageing line called The Eraser.

Swinson claims the faces in the digitally altered photos were “not representative of the results the product could achieve.”

“Pictures of flawless skin and super-slim bodies are all around, but they don’t reflect reality,” said Swinson. “Excessive airbrushing and digital manipulation techniques have become the norm, but both Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts are naturally beautiful women who don’t need retouching to look great.”

The ASA agreed, ruling that the Roberts and Turlington ads breached the standards for exaggeration.

“On the basis of the evidence we have received we could not conclude that the ad image accurately illustrated what effect the product could achieve.”

Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin Are the New Faces of MAC’s Viva Glam

MAC Cosmetics have announced that two new faces will be following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper for the Viva Glam campaign in 2012.

Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin will represent the campaign from February next year. The fund has already raised $224 million dollars and the makeup brand hopes to continue its fundraising success with the help of their new celebrity spokespeople.

This is not the first time the two have worked together. Last year, the Young Money raptress teamed up with M.A.C to release a limited edition “Pink 4 Friday” lipstick that flew off the shelves and sold out.

Minaj and Martin are shooting the new advert today with David LaChapelle; we can’t wait to see the results!
