No wonder women feel so bad about themselves when they’re routinely presented with images like this.
The cover girl means nothing to me – an American singer, apparently – and you don’t realise quite how bad this Photoshopping is until you see the befores and afters, which Jezebel has outlined in horrible detail. No real human being can anatomically look like this. Just as a clue, look at the length and width of her left arm.
It is very worrying that we are all becoming so used to these airbrushed images and even more disappointing when this mag is aimed at older women. Shame on them.
