When is the last time that you looked at a magazine cover? The real question is how close did you look at that cover? Have you ever noticed that celebrities and models that are gracing the cover of magazines magically appear without having hair or pores on their body?! Now maybe it’s some right of passage when you cross over into the land of celebrityism…or maybe it’s that every star or models picture on the cover of these magazines are JUST NOT REALISTIC!
I’m not publicizing the fact that magazines should go and explore the world of hairy people then ask them to appear on the cover; I am simply saying that the “real” celebrity/model should be able to appear on a cover still looking beautiful without being AIRBRUSHED into a perfect picture form.
What boggles my mind is that with all the help that celebrities receive such as top hair and make up artists, stylists, and professional photographers why would anyone need airbrushing??? Who knew that arm hair and pores on your face were suppose to be kept a secret or just out of style! Did they forget that we are all human and do realize that celebrities are too(crazy… I know?!)! As a young girl, how are you NOT suppose to get a complex when these covers paint pictures that aren’t even attainable?!
I hate to break it to the industry, but with all the other media outlets in the wolrd (a.k.a: Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Web Pages, and well of course…Blogs) there is no need for hairless models on covers. We’ve seen the real pictures… they’ve posted them! It’s time to break into the 21st century people: let’s BE REAL not PLASTIC!
