of its original size.
Wrinkles, normal

almost entirely.
Enough said.
* This scary display of digital
manipulation in action was
caught on popular clothing
store Ann Taylor’s website
in August 2010, when the
women behind the feminist
website Jezebel discovered
the “before” image (on the
left, obviously) being
displayed while the
startlingly
narrower ”after” the image
loaded. The already
stunning model’s hips and
thighs were shrunk
to strikingly thin
proportions, but her waist
simply looks ridiculous.
