One of the points of body-positivity is not to be shy of showing your body without airbrushing or Photoshop. Ordinary people with this mindset post their honest photos on social networks, while plus-sized models allow themselves to use the services of professional retouch artists. As a result, in glossy magazines we see only attractive bodies with zero cellulite and flab.
American model Ashley Graham was suspected when her photos on social networks were compared to candid shots made by random photographers on the beach.
Ashley was enjoying leisure time with her mother on Yucatan’s Caribbean coast, so she allowed herself to relax except for a few selfies for Instagram.
Real photos, however, showed Ashley Graham’s skin imperfections, larger legs, and cellulite. It may be due to her recent weight loss and re-gain. Or perhaps she skipped a few workouts.
Anyway, these aren't flaws in any way because they unite Ashley with her body-positive colleagues around the world.
One more American model, the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, Kylie Jenner, also resorts to the services of Photoshop.
She slightly “slimmed down” her waist in the picture in her microblog from what guests at the recent Met Gala ball actually saw.
What do you think about the discrepancy between how models look in magazines and in real life? Do they need to be airbrushed to perfection or should they be like everyone else?
