Airbrushed images to be specially labeled in the UK
Dr Linda Papadopoulos, a clinical psychologist and leading Government advisor from the UK, claims airbrushed images featured in magazine spreads targeted at young girls make teens insecure about their looks and encourage them to believe that being super-skinny is ok, TheDailyMail.co.uk reported.
Dr Papadopoulos thinks the fashion and beauty mags containing airbrushed images of models and stars in the spreads and/or on the cover should be specially labeled for girls to know that what they see is not what the models really look like in real life.
Whereas I can pick up a magazine and say ‘Clearly this is lighting and make-up’, I’m pretty sure that a 13-year-old can’t. I’m not saying people should stop airbrushing, but they need to be honest about it.”
Doctor also suggests that recognizable images should be presented for teen to be aware of the alterations.
Subconsciously this could make a big difference because it will separate fantasy from reality,” Papadopoulos noted. “It’s going to say this is not a realistic ideal – people have pores on their face and if someone’s waist was that small their lungs would collapse.”
Totally agree! Know why? Recently revealed images of Madonna for Louis Vuitton ads before airbrushing are totally scary and have nothing to do with the airbrushed porcelain doll we all see for LV’s F/W campaign.
