Vogue Has Committed Another Huge Photoshop Faux Pas
Vogue is now receiving heavy criticism for its use of Photoshop on models Ashley Graham and Gigi Hadid on the cover of its March issue, going so far as to extend Hadid's arm by what looks like about a foot. Do you think Photoshopping like this is acceptable?
Vogue has been known to make some major Photoshop mistakes over the years, especially when it comes to plus-sized models and celebrities. You can watch a Short detailing a brief history of these massive failures here, including their most recent, in which they extended the length of Gigi Hadid's arm an inhuman amount for what appear to be purposes of covering Ashley Graham's "plus sized" waist.
Many have pointed out the outrageous lengthening of Hadid's arm, as well as significant edits made to Graham's body, appearing in an attempt to slim down the plus-sized model, including putting a stripe and a label on her shorts that weren't there originally.
Many were also concerned that Graham was directed to cover her stomach with her arm by placing it on her thigh instead of reaching for another model's waist like the rest of the girls. Graham, however, has commented to say that this was her choice.
I chose to pose like that.. no one told me to do anything.
So, now, what we would like to know is...
Do you think this kind of photo editing should be acceptable?
