What good is a woman without a little airbrushing? Jessica Simpson and Marie Claire would say a lot, but Elizabeth Hurley, god bless her, knows better.
The 100% airbrush-free issue of French Marie Claire has hit the internet, featuring actress Louise Bourgoin looking slim and dewy and fantastic. Actually, the photographs don't look "different" in any way at all, other than a slight giddiness about them (which could have been on the part of the reader, really). But what did we expect? Just because you remove Photoshop from the equation does not mean Bourgoin's going to have cellulite on her forehead or spare tires around her thighs. As we damn well know, magazines don't have to airbrush images or Photoshop a woman within an inch of her life, and that approach is as harmful as it is prone to spectacularly backfiring.
