But what a shame that a photo like this appearing in magazines, unphotoshopped, is completely inconceivable these days.
Marilyn looks great, but to our modern eyes, accustomed to a false representation of perfection, it’s now seems strange, even shocking, to see a tummy not perfectly toned, thighs that touch, breasts subject to gravitational forces.
That’s not right.
How has this: Become preferable to this?
Elle magazine in France ran a feature in 2009 ‘Stars Sans Fards’ where celebrities appeared without makeup and without photoshop.
I guess it wasn’t a great success, or they’d have repeated the exercise. When did reality become so unattractive?
