Mariah Carey is a naturally beautiful woman with a gorgeous and fit frame, which is even more extraordinary when you consider she’s not only had one baby – but twins!
So why did Terry Richardson feel the need to photoshop her excessively in a recent photoshoot? Jezebel noted all digital enhancements in the photos below. If Mariah Carey’s flat stomach (post twins!) can’t appear in a magazine sans airbrushing, whose stomach can?
This isn’t the only body image buzz hitting the news. In the recent music videoYou & I, John Legend promotes positive body image among women. He shows women of all different backgrounds, ages and sizes gazing into the camera as if looking into a mirror while the poignant lyrics play in the background. “You fix your makeup just so. Guess you don’t know you’re beautiful.”
We can’t help but appreciate videos like John Legend’s when several magazines still airbrush their subjects in an excessive manner. Maybe if we send Terry Richardson a link to John Legend’s video, he will let art mimic life.
