Ann Taylor photoshop controversy is leaving me feeling a bit better about myself.Â I mean, I could hardly stomach shopping online, looking at their perfect models.Â Of course, if something or someone appears too good to be true â€“ they probably are.
Jezebel.com, a popular womenâ€™s online mag, called Ann Taylor out on their photoshopping. Could it be that women in their natural glory just arenâ€™t good enough to be featured online?
@AnnTaylorStyle replied to Jezebel, tweeting â€œWe agree, we may have been overzealous on some retouching but go [sic] forward weâ€™ll make sure to feature more real, beautiful images.â€ And also â€œWe want to celebrate the natural beauty of women, and we apologize that in the process of retouching if some of that was lost.â€
They apologized only because they were called out on something.Â Itâ€™s a horrific reminder that as women, we have to be retouched and photoshopped in order for the rest of the world to see us as beautiful.
If Ann Taylor wants to feature natural and beautiful women â€“ then why not showcase a size 12 or even 14 on their site? Someone without, as Jezebel calls it â€œchild hips.â€
