Accidental Before and After

I’m so sorry that travel kept me from posting this sooner. Jezebel had a fabulous story:

Remember how Ann Taylor promised to “feature more real, beautiful images” after turning models into Stretch Armstrong dolls on its website? Well, they’ve started by adding some unretouched thumbnails that transform into ribless monstrosities when you click them.

To see for yourself, head to this page on Ann Taylor’s website and click on the image in the upper left corner…

As the page loads, you’ll get to see what the Chiffon Trim Tank looks like on a real woman for a few seconds. Then she shrinks into a awkward creature barely able to support the weight of her torso with her tiny child hips.

Sadly, it’s now been removed. But here’s a screen capture of the images in question.

(Thanks, Mr Jender!)

  1. Ick. The photo-shopped version looks weird, probably because of her contraposto position, which highlights the damage done to her waist. The eye is inevitably drawn right to it because of the extra empty (white) space, which frames it. Body issues aside, it’s a great example of a very poor artistic decision.
