Complex Situation

Kim Kardashian is featured in Complex magazine this month, but as you might have already heard, the magazine originally "forgot" to Photoshop one of the images of her. {see below}

Don't worry, the "mistake" was caught and replaced with society's idea of the perfect woman. Kim miraculously lost the veins and cellulite on her legs, gained some additional curves to her cleavage and waistline and her outfit now fits her every curve.


Honestly, we think the lack of photo shopping was the least of the magazine's worries. Kim looks great in all her PhotoShopped glory, but the creative direction for the shoot itself was just really bad.


Then again, Complex is a magazine for men, so as long as the female "models" they use show some majorly enhanced T & A, who cares about bad backdrops and lighting effects, right?

That's just a horrible pose anyway, where have her arms disappeared to?

Oh Mandie! said...

she looks like shes from the 80's in these pics, not flattering, photoshoped or not!

Now in the April GQ she posed with her boyfriend and its casual and pretty and she looks great there. Miss Kardashian needs to get it simple!

These are horrendous pics and it's sad that every photo here has been manipulated, but it IS what we are now used to seeing as a society. SAD!

Don't get me started about the fact that she (and now her family) is only famous because she did a sex tape!

Hmmm, they made her lighter too, interesting.

And they wonder why we develop eating disorders! They're feeding us visions of what we should be and the visions aren't even real. It's maddening.

I think she's beautiful without the photoshop. I hate when people hate on her becasue she is curvy. I think she looks great the way she is.
