This industry is crazy!!!! Why use so much Photoshop and retouching?
Kausman took to her Instagram meagsk to share two photos from the shoot she did with photographer Pip Summerville one prior to editing and one from after. Needless to say, the two were quite different. Not only was her stomach slimmed down, but the rest of her body appears to be retouched, too. The most important part of her post is her own opinion.
This industry is crazy!!!!
Kausman is calling it “shocking”, my body is a size 8, not a size 4. That’s my body! I refuse to stand by and allow ANY company or person to perpetuate the belief that ‘thinner is better. All women are beautiful, and we come in different shapes and sizes! This industry is crazy!!!! It is NOT OKAY to alter a woman’s body to make it look thinner. EVER!”
‘Thinner is better’ is this old fashion way of thinking. Beauty comes in different sizes, color and ages. And Big is beautiful is also a bad slogan… this means thin is ugly? everyBODY is beautiful… and it’s time to show more ‘real size’ bodies. Showing a diversity of bodies, is the refection of reality. And there’s still illusion. Because we still get inspired by beautiful women.
