Did Victoria’s Secret ‘Over-Photoshop’ This Image?
Victoria’s Secret has been in the news quite a bit for pushing Photoshop too far. Yesterday, on their Facebook page, they promoted their ‘Body by Victoria’ line and uploaded this image (within the article) to go along with it. Immediately, the public reacted in outrage about how they were pushing Photoshop too far and it eclipsed the discussion of the product itself. What are your thoughts, Did they abuse Photoshop again or is it natural? Before deciding, check out these reasons why they may not be in the wrong this time.
Though V.S. has had their fair share of negative coverage of going too far with Photoshop, you can’t blame the public for reacting the same way after seeing this image.
However, we took a look into it and we realized that outside of the regular retouching they usually do, they may not have morphed her body into something it wasn’t. The public’s reaction is based on her body size and not the skin work itself.
The model’s name is Lais Ribeiro. After taking a look at a few of her runway photos below, she does appear to be the same proportions as the image in question showcases.
Do you still feel that Victoria’s Secret went too far or do you think they really didn’t modify her body in comparison to her natural proportions and dimensions?
