The July cover of Redbook, with Faith Hill seemed, perfect. I have the issue, and even said, “Wow, she looks great.” That is until jezebel.com revealed that the photo was ‘Photoshopped,’ by Redbook.

According to WWD.com, Redbook editor Stacy Morrison said, “The retouching we did on Faith Hill’s photo for the July cover of Redbook is completely in line with industry standards. We are investigating how the unretouched images got released.”

To see what was done to Faith click here, it is unbelievable, and is one reason I love candids so much-they show the celeb as they are.

Thanks Jezebel

    “…completely in line with Industry Standards” ??!!!?? What a complete lack of responsibility and sidestepping a valid question on Redbook’s part. We all know “industry standards” are way out of line with what reality is. The “Industry” creates images that are absolutely unnatural to everyday women. Shame on Redbook and any other entities standing behind “Industry Standards”.

    ITA with Ann. It’s funny because when I first saw the cover, I immediately thought it looked like she didn’t have ribs. They pinched her waist so tightly that it looked painful and unnatural. I wasn’t surprised when I saw the originals, but it’s ridiculous that they felt the need to edit them so much. (It’s also a terrible pose and I wonder why those chose that specific one for the cover.)

    She looks fine in the original pic, undernourished in the photoshopped.
    And this for a magazine who often write about teens and eating disorders etc.
    What an example. I find it beyond disgusting.
    Making someone look at least two sizes smaller, with stick arms, is not quite the same as adding some eyeshadow and covering up a few blemishes.

    At least they hid her dirty feet.
