Flare Magazine Needlessly Photoshopped Jennifer Lawrence

December 16, 2013 2 min read

So this cover isn't anything new.  Its from the 2011 Cover of Flare Magazine.  For all of those who don't know, Flare is "Canada's Fashion Magazine."  I didn't know that either. The extreme photoshopping going on for magazines and advertisements have been all over the web recently.  But its a question that isn't ever answered for us, WHY IS THIS EVEN NECESSARY? Let's talk about the fact that Jennifer's BONES were moved around.  Who knew that your collarbone is so unsightly that it has to be lowered down.  On top of that here's what else they did to J-Law, who publicly spoke out about her anger over the cover. 1.Shrunk her waist. 2.Those itty bitty rolls around her waist. 3.Slimmed her thighs 4. Removed all those awful awful wrinkles in the skirt (being facetious here) 5. Added more "definition" to her breasts and lifted them up 6. Slimmed her arms 7. Moved hair 8. Added highlighting and contouring all over 9. Flattened hand 10. Porcelain skin It's just beyond ridiculous at this point.  Jennifer is gorgeous, but by lengthening her clavicle (that bone in the neck area that moved) it gives the illusion of a longer neck and more height.  While boosting the color of the image and adding shadows and highlights is considered "normal" and within the accepted means there is absolutely no reason at all for this amount of photoshop. How is it that in our society where rising numbers of girls are developing eating disorders and are obsessing over their weight that stunts like this are accepted?  What message does this send to young women and girls who see this model of perfection splashed across the front page of a newspaper?  What are the ramifications of letting this continue?  What happens to a society that doesn't accept a normal woman as beautiful anymore and the standard of beauty has become the click of a mouse in photoshop? We must, every day, remind ourselves that beauty isn't a airbrushed model.  Beauty is who you are on the inside and that gorgeous face looking out at you from the mirror at 6 am.
