Models: Before & After (It’s Feel-good-Friday!)

In I spied... on November 25, 2011 at 11:32 am

In the aftermath of Thanksgiving, when many of us are perhaps feeling a little like stuffed turkeys ourselves, I thought a post featuring models looking like mere mortals could come in handy. Let’s call it ‘feel better about yourself’ Friday! We all love a good ‘before & after’ don’t we? So let’s get started.

Here are some model photos I dug up from a Gucci® fashion show a few seasons ago. A few of them actually look like some of my mates down at the pub (I don’t have mates down at the pub but if I did, I imagine this is what they would look like)….

Now as the fair and serious journalist that I am, I’m obliged to cover all grounds and remind you that fashion shows usually have very early call times for models, which might explain some of them looking so extremely dishevelled.

But for fun, let’s just ignore that possibility and proceed….

Life Before Photoshop

Ever wonder why today’s fashion campaigns are a product of lengthy Photoshopping sessions?

What kind of touch-ups did the models get before Adobe came along and changed our world forever? As these pin-up before & afters show, the models literally became cartoons of their former selves…

And just for good measure… let’s see some Supermodels’ Before & After

From the Louis Vuitton 2010 fashion show, it seems a little bit of make-up can’t do these well-known faces too much harm either…
