Madonna Gets a Virtual Makeover

Madonna-gets-insanely-photoshopped - Madonna Gets a Virtual Makeover

So this one on the left would be 51 year-old Madonna posing for Louis Vuitton and the one on the right would be her plastic daughter cartoonized, youngified, why-even-bother-hiring-Madonna-if-you-are-gonna-draw-her-anyway version after it was wildly bombed with various operations in Photoshop.

Nice one, photoshoppers!

What the heck! And what is wrong with her arms in the photoshopped one?!

imo, Because she has bunny ears, the real one reminds me of someone who has gone out to town and gotten really trashed and is looking at the camera person like “don’t you dare take my photo”!

She looks awful. I wouldn’t buy anything she advertises. I hate and despise this woman, and I rarely do. She’s the most overrated celebrity out there, IMO. And for the first time- thank you, photoshop!

Louis Vuitton I LOVE you, stop using this old hag to advertise your goods. What is the point??? hire someone attractive and save on the retouching! Jeez

you’d think she would be embarrassed or insulted by how much they’ve retouched her image. i know i would be.

I like the photoshop picture better. Yeah it’s not real but that’s the point, to make it SOOO unrealistic and unreal that it’s this “perfectly perfect” image. I know many people probably disagree with me but this is my opinion and I don’t really care: I don’t mind photoshop at all. That is why I buy magazines, I KNOW it’s all photoshop and fake, but I don’t care, that is what makes it fun to read. I like going into the fake little world for a little bit and looking at all the pretty people. It would be frickin’ boring… Read more »

Specifically about this Madonna LV ad… I don’t think the photo editors were actually trying to pass off the photoshopped image as “real”, it’s all about the ad and the art of the photo. It suppose to look dreamy and too perfect and drawn. I don’t see the fuss, it’s not like they are trying to set a standard of perfection in this particular ad (even if they were, it’s all fake and I know what real looks like so I don’t give a sh*t, I like seeing the impossible perfection, it’s intriguing). I don’t know… I think people overreact… Read more »

Hehe, spill your guts out if it helps!

So, while i completely agree with you about photoshop, it surprised me how a whole bunch of people do not get it and really think that is real. You would think that anyone with half a brain can tell photoshop apart from reality, but no they can’t. I do not hate photoshop, i hate the people who fail to see it and argue that what they see is real and so on. The least they could do is shut up.

I also agree with jellywish, very good points you have!

YOU’RE RIGHT, Uma…LOL my dad would still say “wow madonna looks so hot” meh…(photoshop)

Alias, all mature individuals know that magazines are not real, you are not the only one. But kids grow up surrounded by all thius fakeness, without the capacity to identify real from unreal… that is another story. There is a reason why the number of plastic surgeries has increased 7 times in the past decade – it would be absurd to claim that the “retouched” media didn’t contribute to this. So no, it’s not “anyone with half a brain shouldn’t let it get to them!” – it’s quite the contrary, as I happen to care about the INVOLUTION of our… Read more »

“But kids grow up surrounded by all this fakeness, without the capacity to identify real from unreal.” Um, this is why children are growing up dumb. Because we tell them they are. Children can think quite well on their own. They HAVE the capacity to identify real from unreal. They know that a certain celebrity may or may not have been photoshopped, or had surgery. The thing is though, they know that they can also have these results, and that is why they fall victim. Because it is so widely available and publicly permitted. Surgeries have increased in popularity because… Read more »

I’m not sure about the social etc consequences of photoshopping, but i agree with you about creating the “perfect” image. I like to look at unrealistic, dreamy ads every now and then also.

Alias, I agree with you! I really don’t mind photoshop. I don’t mind if they take lines off there, add more color there, make those boobies bigger…whatever. Because the truth is, I’ll still go to the store and try on the product myself before buying it. That way I’m never really disappointed. I do admit though there was a point that I thought that magazine pictures were just really beautiful and perfect women with perfect skin. But nowadays, you can just Google photoshop and there you go…you gain 5 years worth of knowledge in about a minute. I like the… Read more »

She’s been looking REALLY tired and rough lately…

There was a post a few weeks about pertaining to actresses 60+ … and they all look so much fresher than she does.

She looks like a mannequin. o_O

Her chest looks stupidly smooth.
She only seems to have one collarbone.
The list goes on really.

Not much a fan of her anyway. She looks pretty old and haggard.

I’m really into digital imaging and photoshop is an amazing program. However, this excessive use of APS in ads is ridiculous.

It’s nice. It’s more like graphic art than just an airbrushed picture, and that makes it nice. Get the hell over it.

Exactly. This was meant to be unrealist. This ad and colecction was all about dreams, womans with bunny ears, fluffy dresses, etc. They meant to make her look like a doll.
And the unphotoshoped pic is in a unflattering pose and facial expression.

When is she going to wake up and realize that she’s not 25 anymore? No amount of exercise, leotards, 80’s retro pop music or gyrating is going to make her look like she is 25.

I’ve found people like to be deluded in all aspects of life. It gets a little complicated because you can only keep up lies for so long. Our political system is a great example of that. LV is playing the demographic game. They know 20 something years olds probably don’t have the money to buy their bags but Madonna groupies? Well, they are a bit older and if you shoot for that market you are far more likely to find some ladies with money. There’s a problem though: Aging. I’m not sure why western society is so desperately afraid of… Read more »

What is wrong with being 51?

Exactly, I honestly don’t understand why they’d hire someone who they clearly think looks too old to be in their ad. Why not hire an actual twenty year old? I literally wouldn’t have even known that it was her in the second picture. It was taken way too far; if I was her I’d be deeply offended.

In the creation of autograph copy watches, there are many players. Many of them sell decently serviceable autograph copy watches. But the best of the lot come from the manufacturing and warehousing facilities of our site. The best selling Rolex autograph copy watch tier is an exemplification of the same.Each Rolex autograph copy Daytona watch sold on our site is an rigid autograph copy of the primitive, in all aspects material and functional. And each Rolex Daytona autograph copy watch has also been reviewed by the autograph copy watches reviews team and only those watches that have passed with flying… Read more »
