Hey all,
I came across this today and I just thought I'd share it here. It just goes to show that the standard that is set for standards of beauty is not always as real as it seems. This video clip does have sound.

Holy mackerel. That's just, I don't know, depressing? That a very lovely woman has to be tweaked and retouched like that just to be glamorous enough to sell some product.

What a great, and true, video! I work in printing/publishing and I remember some years back a very famous mens' magazine gave some spec work to my prepress house. It was a swimsuit-type picture of a beautiful woman wearing only a white mesh tunic, and it was marked up with things to change. I don't remember all of them, but "trim hip" was an instruction that really stands out. As in, erase part of her hip so it is smaller. We were also instructed to brush out a nipple. Uhhh...but you're Old And Famous Mens' Magazine. Men BUY your magazine to see nipples.

I also met a guy on a trip once who did the same kind of thing, but in video. I wish I could remember what he had to do to Mariah Carey's face. I think she had a zit when filming a video, and it had to be taken out. So his job was going frame by frame erasing this zit.

The lesson is: the images you see in magazines, billboards, anywhere...they're retouched. They're retouched UP THE WAZOO. Heads are put onto different bodies. Skin is smoothed, eyes are enlarged, bulges are erased, tiny wrinkles are filled, eyes and teeth are whitened and brightened, the list goes on and on. Absolutely teenage girls should be told about this so that they know to view these images as idealized art, not as something to attempt to emulate.

Anyway....I think that the people I have met here are among the most beautiful people I have ever met in my life. I am privelaged and greatful. From all walks of live, all stages, all locations. Just thought I'd share that too. We are all real strength and beauty, no matter what our vices we will triumph.

One of our favorite things around the holidays is to look at old photos and smile and laugh and reminisce about our loved ones and how we all looked then. Will our future generations have the good fortune to do the same? Will anyone look "real" after all our pics are redone and photoshopped to death?

Thanks for sharing this video. I'll definitely show it to my 14 yr. old DD.
