The airbrush strikes again

At least Kimora Lee Simmons admits that this picture for her “Dare Me” fragrance was heavily touched up. I don’t, however, understand why anyone would allow herself to be airbrushed THIS MUCH. Not only does the altered image look nothing like Simmons, it doesn’t remotely resemble the figure of any flesh-and-blood woman. Barbie might be envious, but I simply find myself shaking my head at the absurdity of it all.

    An interesting blog post…I’m looking for more information here on this topic! You’ve started something real and it’s a valid point of discussion in regards to Simmons’ statement. It would be great to hear more of your opinion as well as maybe some quotes from others who have chimed in about the same thing.

    This is actually my 6th post so the requirement for class is already complete — this was just something I didn’t have quite enough time to give detailed commentary on (especially since this post feels like a bit of a postscript to a few of my earlier posts), but I felt belonged on this blog. Thanks for the suggestion, though!

  3. I want to know more! This is ridiculous. What are other stars thnking about this? Geez, I do not like this one bit. She doesn’t look real! How could she think that as a widely know celebrity/model/fashion icon that people would not recognize her in a nationally printed ad?

    WOW. Although it this is obviously absurd, I am more saddened than anything. What would make a woman go to these extremes to do this? Not only are women extremely motivated by their appearance, the consequences of a media like this on young girls is quite frightening.
