Karlie Kloss’ Numero Magazine Photoshop Fiasco

By Clarissa17 @ClarissaSeaton

Photoshop is an excellent photo editing tool that has been very useful to the advertising and marketing world for many years. It is the go-to software when it comes to making alterations to the photos of models, modifying the way they look in their face and body. Lately, however, advertising companies and marketing firms have been exaggerating the use of Photoshop, whether to chance the appearance of a background or body figure of a model. Latest fashion news has mentioned numerous instances of Photoshop work gone wrong on models – whether new to the industry or a supermodel.Karlie Kloss’ Photo misadventuresIt has become commonplace for agencies to resort to Photoshop whenever they decide that a model turned out in her photo having  a crooked nose, distended abdomen, or oversized size. However, not all Photoshop corrections were successful. One of the most recent cases of wrong airbrushing is that of Karlie Kross, an American model who is acknowledged by Vogue Magazine as one of the top supermodels of recent times.Original Picture of Kloss’ Exposed Bony RibcageHer picture in question has been the subject of many questions, disgust, and even ridicule by fashion experts and the general public. This was the shot that Kloss did for popular Numero Magazine. The original picture showed her naked and revealing her protruding ribcage. It was supposedly an image that’s meant to celebrate the beauty of the human body. But instead, it elicited shocking and repulsive reactions from everyone.Photoshop – right solution to Kloss’ picture failure?Obviously, the people behind the photo led by Greg Kadel decided that there were too much visible bones that people can take and Numero Magazine can print, which is why he took matters into his own hands – by editing the photo and making the collarbones and ribs disappear. The result is a more sanitized picture of mega model Karlie, which still showed her breasts and nipples but without the revolting display of torso bones.Indeed, Kadel and his studio have been in the latest fashion news mainly because of this Photoshop fiasco. The public however is divided on the issue. Many have lauded Kadel for editing out the offending part of the photo as this can be a cause for young girls to think that having an Anorexic looking body is the norm. Still many others balked at the studio and the magazine, contending that if they didn’t hire a reed-thin model, Photoshop and airbrushing would not be necessary, in the first place.Image Source: About-Face
