On the fact that France has banned underweight models from the runways:

I do not want to BODY SHAME Naturally thin women nor do I want to dictate whether or not they should work based on weight or whether or not they have a mental illness (ED) HOWEVER the thing I love about this is we in America Should have MANDITORY WARNINGS on images in ADvertisements & PRESS that have been doctored. Because the real issue (in my opinion) is that we are selling products (clothes, perfume, music, film) on unrealistic and doctored images of people. And I for one would want to know, I would want my friends to know and strangers and especially young men and women to know if they were looking at something real or something fake. Because then we can see clearly that we are being sold products on the basis of first making ourselves feel less than (not pretty enough not skinny enough not healthy enough whatever) so we “need to buy this product to be like the person in the ad. And feel better about ourselves” Well guess what. The person in the ad doesn’t even look like that. What an amazing world it would be if we could just acknowledge that. And then celebrate that we all look different, have different bodies and different backgrounds and histories, and then find all of those differences beautiful.

… says the 31 year-old actress.

Thank you @attndotcom for sharing this. I do not agree with all of this. I do not want to BODY SHAME Naturally thin women nor do I want to dictate whether or not they should work based on weight or whether or not they have a mental illness (ED) HOWEVER the thing I love about this is we in America Should have MANDITORY WARNINGS on images in ADvertisements & PRESS that have been doctored.

I didn’t the first time I saw her on PLL, but now she’s gorgeous in my eyes. I definitely think she’s somebody who gets more attractive the more you look at/see her

She is my favorite and I think the prettiest on PLL. I think she is very smart, but I don’t know I completely agree with what she is saying. I’m against the Photoshopping when you make someone heavy thin all of a sudden when you know they are overweight. But I can understand getting rid of unflattering folds and other features with some of the very overweight models. After all, unflattering images in magazine ads don’t sell lingerie. Women want to look good when they buy clothes, I can understand either picking the right model or getting rid of unflattering… Read more »

Let’s not get delusional, perfectly fit and thin women get photoshoped too, not only overweight women. Ffs, they photoshoped out Karlie’s ribs in a famous magazine shoot. Light correction is also not what people think about when talking about “no photoshop”, and you know it.

true, the same goes to editing occasional bruises, tan lines, tattoos and other things out.

interesting… maybe she didn’t really watch most of the fashion shows during Paris Fashion Week, because Kaia Gerber surely walked and let’s all agree that no matter how much people may or may not like her, she’s skin and bones at only 16 (and the same applies to many of the other models on the shows). Every now and then the fashion industry tries to pull something like this, which would be truly AMAZING if taken seriously and was effective. Ever since a young brazilian model died from anorexia in the mid 2000s (Carolina Reston if I recall) the industry… Read more »
