Dirty Pretty Rant...Adele

Adele is featured in Vogue Magazine's 'Shape' Issue this month, looking a lot less...well, shapely.

They've primped, prodded, positioned and photo-shopped her into what they obviously think is an ideal size and we don't like it one bit!

Here's Adele BEFORE Vogue... a voluptuous beauty:

And, here is Adele in the current issue of Vogue, totally positioned and photo-shopped into what looks like a size 6-8. Again, this is from Vogue's 'SHAPE' issue, which supposedly 'celebrates' women of ALL shapes and sizes:

Boo to Vogue! Let's hear it for REAL women with REAL curves and be done with all of this insane photo-shopped, lipo-suctioned, plastic surgeried fakeness that abounds anymore!

And, if you've not yet heard Adele, who just recently won a Grammy for Best New Artist, then here's a treat for your pretty little ears:

adele, adele - first, I hate that the Vogue Matriarch styled her in such a matronly outfit for the Granny's uh I mean Grammy's!

second, She's gorgeous! They so could have styled her in a way to make her voluptuous curves pop!! Instead they put her in a long sleeve polka dot coat, laying on an unmade bed... that's just wrong!!!

She looks totally different for sure! I'm pretty tired of the media making everyone feel that they have to get a face lift, tuck, boob job, Botox, etc. just to fit in to today's young obsessed society. So, I'm with you there. We are beautiful as we are!

so sad... A beautiful woman does not need to be "made over."

Boo @ Vogue indeed!

That's truly disappointing and, sadly, not at all surprising. Our culture is obsessed with an unhealthy concept of what "all" women should look like. A concept that goes against your body type and, as a result, is just not healthy.

Then again, I've never looked to Vogue for examples of what real women look like.

Does it really matter? I mean, as long as she's okay with it, then let Vogue do whatever the hell they want!

Size isn't important... looks aren't important... so why are we all ranting about it here?

Slim or shapely, Adele is pure AWESOMENESS. And let's leave it at that.

BandaiBlossom, I think the point we're all trying to make and Raven was making with this post is that Adele IS awesome as is. AS IS!
We're all just wondering why Vogue had to "slim" her down just so that she looks good by their skinny model magazine editorial standards.
