while i can’t blame anyone for wanting to have the covergirl look her best this is just ridiculous….

I don’t really see anything different that they did with SJP that they do with other cover girls. They took away the wrinkles…and that’s about it really. This is one of the most natural covershots of SJP, no matter how sad it is to say it.

I honestly cannot figure out why they would even hire her to be on the cover when they intend to make her unrecognizable. Hiring an ‘everyday’ sort of model would have been WAY cheaper.

They didn’t make her unrecognizable, just 20 years younger lol

Perhaps she asked them to photoshop her face?

almost the same dress as that one demi moore cover?!

It does look similar to that dress. And never even mind her face, that is NOT her body!

which celebrity actually looks as flawless as her image on a magazine cover- why, i would believe that number is zero!

The more I see photoshop in mags the less I become bothered about it. It may sound strange but I’ve always viewed the entertainment industry as one that sells us a fantasy. We demand it they create it. They create it we accept it. Maybe because i’m savvy enough to recognise this I don’t feel so affected by photoshop, though I see it as rather pointless most of the time. Then I know that other people are impressionable and can easily be upset by these images of perfection. These industries will never change as going will stay good so hopefully… Read more »

her body is over “hourglassyfied” too

But she is an hourglass. Just a very slim one.

yeah, i agree. she is a super athletic hourglass, but an hourglass. i was always amazed at her ability to produce breasts when the occasion called for them, too!

but her waist is not that small I think

This might not be a bad thing?

Eh, I am not too bothered by it. They made her skin smoother and took out the wrinkles. Aside from Vogue, the rest seem to have not edited her face.

I think they should have eased up a little, and left at least a few wrinkles, because the truth is she is not 20 anymore and it just looks unnatural from an asthetic point of view.

my biggest issue is they keep getting rid of her ‘beauty mark’ on her chin. its sort of a trade mark for her. i know its there and when its gone its just a sure sign of photoshop. if she wanted it gone, she would have it removed!

Casey

I believe she did have her beauty mark removed.

Yeah that’s been gone for a while now.

really? its in the ‘before’ photo.

all the celebrities have a photoshop…this is not a new! and I love SJP!!!!

As funny as it is about magazines using photoshop, it’s just as interesting that she doesn’t look like the photo on the left either! Either she had some work done and / or uses a lot of makeup, but I haven’t seen any recent untouched photos of her looking like the photo on the left. And yes she doesn’t have the beauty mark anymore.

I guess this thread is a little bit irrelevant since she certainly doesn’t actually look the before picture and maybe not the after pictures either.

jjj
Guest
I certainly didn’t mean it in a way that you modified the before picture, and I understand how difficult it is to get her ‘before picture’ at the correct angle and smiling. I give you lots of credit for that, but my point is that I don’t feel she looks like that anymore and thus it is a fair comparison. Much like magazines using Photoshop to modify pictures to make actresses look better, actresses do the same thing with makeup and doctors. So how fake is the fake picture if she may have altered herself to look like that? She… Read more »

first, you need to get a more updated “real” picture because SJP had botox and those moles removed from her face months ago. so the “after” airbrushed pictures aren’t that far from her botoxed filled face.

Am I the only one that thinks she looks like Bar Refaeli when photoshopped (face-wise)??

They do this with all the celebrities and it’s gotten to the point where there is no difference between a women in her late 40’s on a magazine cover and a 21 year old. Its just stupid. I understand they need for a little touching up to make the cover look its best but to completely elimate any signs of age sends out a really dismal message. Also people need to lay of versus, complaining over something as small as the “before” pic is a bit petty, and besides I havent seen any pictures lately of SJP all dolled up,… Read more »

why do you care if they take away some wrinkles? what do you expect? they photoshop everyone. her body obviously doesn’t need it like most people’s bodies do and her face does need a little bit of photoshop. get over it.

thank you! i thought i was the only one who was getting tired of hearing people complain about photoshop

boohiss

well the problem is that some people will not realize this is photoshopped. and they will hold themselves to this standard. yes they just made her look younger…but everything looks perfect. no one is perfect. and a woman her age may see this, not realize the extent to which this is ‘improved,’ (and to be honest, if i saw it, i would assume it was photoshopped, b/c i assume all magazines are, but not ever guessed to this extent) and feel bad about themselves for having waaayyy more wrinkles. and this applies to ALL photoshop. it sets a standard that… Read more »

Why wouldn’t you photoshop her face. 😛
I like SJP, but not in pictures.

And she looks cross-eyed again on the cover.

I saw this on another website, and I imidently came here because I knew it would be on here. They shouldn’t do that, she has never looked like anyone else, she’s gorgoeous and they should keep her the way she is.

Sigh.. she is already looks good as her age. Dont ask for too much.

Seriously? This is horrible how they made her into a woman she is clearly not! They gave a 40+ year old woman the skin of a baby… not realistic!

Clare

She looks like a normal woman of her age in the untouched pics-why not show this?? Why do they have to show us unrealistic pics of perfection???

Ellie

They’ve totally reshaped her jaw. This is the worst one of the three, she looks reeaally weird. I like SJP but she’s no model.

well at least the creations resemble each other 😀 i never really liked SJP, but it’s horrid to invite you to do a photoshoot and then photoshop you to death…why not invite a model in the first place?

Way to choose an awful comparison photo.
