Did Vogue Go Too Far? Lady Gaga’s New Dress Size
We all know that fashion and glamour photography can be controversial at times. First with Kate Upton’s horribly retouched cover of Sports Illustrated, then with the leak of Victoria’s Secret’s untouched photos and their debatable over-retouch of Lais Ribeiro earlier this month. Well, now it seems to be Vogue magazine that’s the culprit, and their celebrity of choice… the eccentric Lady Gaga. It seems the re-toucher might have been a little overzealous with the liquify tool in Photoshop, making our lovely pop-icon into a disproportionate Barbie doll on September’s cover.
However weird it may be, it’s likely this was a conscious choice. That said, how do you feel about the retouch? Did the folks at Vouge go too far, or should we just learn to accept this as industry standard?
