2 weeks ago, we were shocked to see ‘plus-size’ model Crystal Renn in 2 photos that featured a much skinnier version of the model and some found it hard to believe that Crystal was still a size 10 US.
Well, a pre-Photoshop photo of Crystal taken during the photo-shoot surfaced (see above) and once again, congrats (not) to the airbrusher! Here’s what he had to say (from Glamour):
Photographer Nicholas Routzen explained that Crystal looks the way she does because the photos were â€œâ€¦taken from a higher angle with a wider lens.â€ But he also added, â€œI shaped herâ€¦I did nothing that I wouldn’t do to anyone. I’m paid to make women look beautiful.â€
And how did Crystal feel about her digital makeover?
Well, I was shocked. When I saw the pictures, I think I was silent for a good five minutes, staring with my mouth open. I don’t know what was done to those photos or who did it, but they look retouched to me. And listen, everybody retouches, but don’t make me into something I’m not.
That body doesn’t look like my body. It doesn’t. Having had an eating disorder, I know what that very thin body looks like on me, and it’s not something I find attractive. It’s not something I aspire to. I feel completely confident in my own health because I know I don’t look like that, but even to see it in an image was really disturbing to me.
What do you guys think about that?
