Kim Kardashian Photoshop’s latest victim 

Why the lightened skin? Thats what ide like to know! Is her skin colour offensive or ugly? NO! So why have the retouchers made her paler, is dark skin not fashionable? WTF?????
This is not unlike the unnecessary air brushing of Angelina Jolie which made her look anorexic… Except that this time it seems racist, no??

That's not lightening the skin tone, that's a color adjustment, which primarily effected her arm and thighs - unless you think burnt orange is natural?

What you should be upset about is the side fat removed from her right breast. The altered hairline changing her forehead shape and reducing temple size, plus smoothing the top of her head. The removing of all veins and skin imperfections on her thighs. They removed skin bulge from the belt being too tight on her right. The contour of the bodice over her right hip was smoothed - the mesh blended so you can't see the contour amplifying her bulging stomach. An indentation was added where her left breast meets her ribcage, also changing what was belly bulge into the appearance of a smooth left hip curve, plus smoothing the lump on the top side, of her left thigh. Not to forget the most important part, they made her waist and hips, more narrow overall.

Altering the overall color/tone of a photo to be more appealing (purple background to blue, subdued skin tones from a bad light job in the studio) is a common practice in photos - Color Theory 101. Making someone look like an hourglass not bulging out of their clothes, 2 sizes too small... that's a lie.

An unrealistic body proportion, adding onto the ever growing inferiority complex for women in today's society. :( Screw you Photoshop.
