Where have her hips gone Bloomingdales model is latest to fall victim to Photoshop
It”s a wonder this model can even stand up, let alone pose for a photograph.
Thanks to some creative use of Photoshop, the model in this advert for Bloomingdales appears to have lost her entire pelvis, all so she can show off the latest sweater dress.
The description for the Max & Cleo turtleneck sweater dress says it “boasts a waist-cinching belt for the most flattering fit”.
The hips do lie: This model wearing a Max & Cleo turtleneck sweater dress appears to be missing her hips and bottom
“Digitally enhanced”: Left, it isn”t clear how the model would be able to stand up with her pelvis missing and, right, how she actually looks when she hasn”t been altered
Models tend to be on the skinny side, but it looks like this woman”s belt has managed to squash her hips and completely remove her bottom.
A close-up of the dress shows it has been digitally altered to make it “drape” over her body.
The software is regularly used to create the ideal look for magazine or advertising purposes.
In May, Grazia came under fire after a picture of the Duchess of Cambridge on its cover appeared to have been altered to slim down her waistline.
“Decency”: Model Giselle Bndchen appears in an H&M advertising campaign in May and, right, edited to suit a Muslim audience in Dubai
“Altered”: The Duchess of Cambridge had her already slim waistline adjusted on the front cover of Grazia in May
Slimline: Beyonce”s voluptuous legs were toned down on the front cover of Harper”s Bazaar magazine earlier this year
Less than a week after the Royal Wedding, the image of Kate in her wedding dress revealed a discrepancy between the line of her corset and the fabric of her Alexander McQueen skirt.
The Duchess was already slim, so it hardly seemed necessary to doctor the image.
H&M was also guilty of altering its images after a campaign featuring model Gisele Bndchen this year was deemed too risqu for the Middle East.
Despite revealing only her bare arms or a hint of cleavage, t-shirts or vests were Photo-shopped into the images for adverts running in Dubai.
And in November mega-star Beyoncs usually voluptuous legs were shaved until they were virtually stick-thin for the front cover of Harper”s Bazaar.
The image also did not show any hint of a baby bump – despite the fact her first child is thought to be due in February.
