Photoshopping Real Women into Cover Models (2-Minute Viral Video)

6 million views in 11 days. That’s how deeply we women can relate to this important video in which four regular women were chosen to participate in a photo shoot, and then the resulting photos were photoshopped to make them look like skinny, gorgeous, blemish-free supermodels. The surprising thing is that the women, who previously had dreamed of looking like models, felt ambivalent to see themselves transformed.

One woman explained, “Once someone else has done your makeup and someone else has done your hair and someone’s directed the way your body looks and then taken away your imperfections then there’s not much left of who you really are.” Another said, “This is how I always wanted to see myself, but now that I’m seeing it I’m questioning why I wanted to look like that.”
