Just found this post on the front page of WordPress.com and thought I’d repost the pics here (giving full credit of course to the original author).

Here’s an impossibly beautiful model who, in my opinon, needs no retouching whatsoever, but just look at all they plan to do to her!

Unairbrushed Model

First, how cute is her hair?! I love this haircut and if I looked good with short hair, I would totally go for this cut.

Second, even though this model is thin, she actually looks relatively healthy to me. She’s not skin-and-bones skinny, and I can even see some muscles in there.

Third, I think she looks perfectly fine in this pic. I would totally buy this bikini if I were 16 years old (because really, ruffles on a 39 year old? I don’t think so.).

Anyway, here are the before/after shots.  You tell me, which one looks better?

Before and After

Yeah, me too. The second photo looks “off” to me. Oh that’s right…because it IS!

So for all of you out there who think you aren’t good enough – don’t feel bad. Apparently we live in a world where near-perfection isn’t perfect enough!

Anyone else out there get a thrill/breathe a sigh of relief when you see untouched photos?
