Public figures stand up againgst retouching in magazines to avoid “public trashing” of their perceived flaws or insecurities.
Celebrities speak out on Women Fitness about their insecurities & photo editing.
Shannon-Lee, model & mother shared her view on Women Fitness surrounding photo editing & shaming “Women and girls are easily discontent and can think about what we lack instead of focusing on our positives and strengths. It took me some time, especially after going through 7 pregnancies and remembering what I used to look like when pregnant, to accept myself as I am today. Be the best you that you can be. You are not the same as anyone else and God made you unique. As long as I am working hard and trying to make the best decisions the majority of the time then I am content with myself.”
This is wht Social Media Megastar Abigail Ratchford has to say “I’ve always dealt with pressure from the beginning because my body is not a normal size: two body type for a model, so I’ve always been called fat or thicker told I needed to lose weight. The funny thing is about a year ago, I was dealing with a lot of stress personally and ended up losing weight – the ironic thing was I got a lot of backlash for that and everybody was like “Why did you lose weight?!!!” So that’s when I realized… no matter if I’m skinny or too “thick” at the end of the day, you just can’t make everybody happy. As long as I’m happy with myself that’s all that matters.”
Supermodel, Robyn Lawley promotes, women and men to accept their natural size and to stop the body hating and shaming. We’ve been inundated with a certain body type for so long it’s gratifying seeing shifts in fashion and campaigns of late.
‘Riverdale’ star, Reinhart showed her displeasure in seeing the Photoshopped pictures of herself in Cosmopolitan magazine sharing about the ways in which society’s unrealistic beauty standards affect women’s relationships with their own bodies. Another clebrity model Emily Ratajkowski shared how French magazine Madame Figaro, Photoshopped her lips and breasts to look smaller. She went on to add “Everyone is uniquely beautiful in their own ways. We all have insecurities about the things that make us different from a typical ideal of beauty. I, like so many of us, try every day to work past those insecurities … I hope the fashion industry will finally learn to stop trying to stifle the things that make us unique and instead begin to celebrate individuality.”
Iskra Lawrence highly criticizes heavily edited photos on Instagram. She furthur adds, Please NEVER EVER compare yourself to images you see, many aren’t real. Perfect does NOT exist so trying to achieve that is unrealistic and editing your pictures will not make you happy. What’s real is YOU, your imperfectly perfect self that’s what makes you magical, unique and beautiful.
Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Kate Winslet, Meghan Trainor, Kerry Washington and many more agree that we have become a society of picture adjusters.
There is no one else like you! You have to believe that!
