Good news for ordinary shaped women

This is how the deed is done

It looks like the French government is looking into banning images of women that have been airbrushed to make them look “perfect”.  There will also be investigations into the thin-ness of models on the cat walk. 

The other day I was looking at some magazines on display at the newsagents.  One of them caught my eye and I was reading the titles trying to find out what was wrong with the poor woman on the cover.  Then I realized that she was modeling clothes that were to be featured in the magazine.

It's salutary to watch these short video films. Actually, I feel a lot better about myself now, because I feel 'real'.

I'm slightly sorry for the models. They must realise that they are merely raw clay to be drawn on and painted, then photographically altered into a quite different person. I'd find that insulting.

Caroline: ! indeed

Lucy: Yes, I feel better about myself too.

So even supermodels aren't as "pretty" as what you see in magazines?

I read an article explaining how movies use cgi now to the actors look better. This is an addition to make-up, hair design, lighting, etc.

Dave: hello, thank you for your comment. There is a lot of deception going on. Unfortunately very young girls try to model themselves on women that don't exist which makes for a lot of unhappiness.
