We’ve been dealing with the concept of fashion magazines airbrushing models to look thinner and prettier for years, but just when we thought that it was out of control, we find out that apparently, thin isn’t in—at least like it used to be.
According to Blisstree.com, magazines are now airbrushing models to make them look heavier, after discovering that thin doesn’t always sell.
“I have to airbrush clients’ to make them appear bigger and more womanly before I submit photographs,” a talent manager told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column, according to the site. “Skinny doesn’t sell.”
The process has been dubbed as “reverse retouching,” where models are being digitally enhanced to look larger and curvier to appeal to the magazines’ audiences.
On one hand, it’s great that the trend to use pin-thin models is fading, but on the other hand, why not use healthy, curvy models instead of digitally enhancing skinnier ones?
Do you think reverse retouching is a good thing?
