Default celebrities are drastically modified fueling unrealistic expectations

You may have seen this but I thought it was interesting.

This popular ad from personal care company Dove and their new Campaign for Real Beauty does an excellent job of revealing how photos of models and celebrities are drastically modified fueling unrealistic expectations in girls and guys.

I have seen that one - it's an amazing transformation isn't it? I think the best thing we can do is instill a good sense of worth in our children. Make them realize that beauty is difference. Could you imagine if everybody looked the same? What a boring world this would be.

Dawn, that is true wisdom, and I couldn't agree more. Hugs.

I have seen it before too and it is indeed amazing. I knew they doctored some pictures but I had no idea that they take it that far.

No wonder so many girls have low self esteems

I've seen that before ... sadly it's very inaccurate, and they don't actually distort images as much as they make it out here =/ Coming from someone who used to model, the pics aren't modified nearly half that much. Normally all they do is airbrush out skin imperfections, like blemishes. So yeah ... the ad has a sweet idea, but it's as inaccurate as their view of the modelling industry.

I've always known that celebrities are no different than the rest of us, other than having great makeup artists. We'd all look like models if we could borrow thier makeup and hair folks.

Growing up in Los Angeles I've seen "stars" au natural, and they look the same (or worse) than the rest of us. Basically, you need good bone structure, big eyes and somewhat good teeth to be considered beautiful.
