The gifs from this video just go to show how much creative license someone skilled at Photoshop can take with the image of a woman. Honestly, it doesn't really seem to matter what the model looks like to begin with. She could have been a scribble of a stick figure on the back of a CVS receipt, and we would have ended up with the same image of a doe-eyed, long-legged, perfectly toned woman.


We've seen these side-by-side gifs before—we even made one back in 2007 with Faith Hill's 'award'-winning Redbook cover. So it's not exactly news that the images of women in magazines today are more like those in comic books, an artistic rendition of the concept of a feminine body type, while the photographs of real women continue to simply be a suggestion.
