Perfection in the Eye of the Mouse Clicker

It is no secret that celebrities and models are given a helping hand by photo retouching. It is such a common practice that consumers have just accepted this practice as the norm in print media. Besides the fact that this seriously skews our image of womanhood and femininity, I am tired of magazines assuming that we are not intelligent enough to miss deformed proportions. Point in case, Leighton Meester's recent shoot for Vanity Fair:


Which is more disturbing: the disregard for our intelligence or the fact that they want women to believe that we are supposed to have stilts for appendages? I thought the unedited Leighton in the video of the photoshoot was absolutely stunning. Why mess with natural beauty?

Okay, late night rant over.

Oh my! It seems I need to put up a video ASAP. LOL! I have definitely been slacking in the video department, especially because by the time I get home my lighting stinks for swatches. I do have a list of videos I really want to film though.
