FHM Magazine cover

I have been looking for some red pumps for some time and today I saw this cover.



Now, I am not sure whats more drool-worthy, her peep-toes or her dress!! I haven't seen Minissha look this sizzling ever. And, honey, no-one has such glossy legs..Not even Britney Spears - today she released un-airbrushed images of herself next to the digitally-altered versions. You can see them here. So if what do u guys think - is altering celebs pics a do or a dont??

I am not against photoshopping an image as long as they have labels on the cover - 80% celeb, 19% software, 1% brain:-)

I did find some red shoes - u can see them in my stylefeeder. I am leaning towards the red patent Jessica Simpson slingbacks..And Minissha's dress reminded me of the printed dress..sigh..



That, hon, is 100% celeb.

Hmmm...regarding the Britney photoshop.. I don't understand why the need to photoshop then show the photoshopping!! That's crazy! It's a false sense of 'responsibility to society'... because now women are convinced that our our natural bodies are just good enough for public view.

Britney is a celebrity and Candies uses her to sell their products...she should have the power to say, you want me? Take me as I am.

hmmm...they have over-glossed her legs, very silly. Glossy legs give the illusion of slim length. This can be achieved 'naturally' by applying oil down the shin bone only.
Highlighter can be used but not everyone knows how to blend this properly and it just ends up looking obvious. Not as obvious as 'shopped legs.

Now...on to the important things... red shoes!!!! Yummmm!!! I am in search of the perfect pair and have been now for 27 years! I was 13 when I saw this magazine ad of a gorgeous woman with patent crimson red pumps and I have been looking for that perfect pair ever since. That's perhaps why I shoe-shop so much...I'm lookig for that perfect red pair.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

I like your choices! Please do share what you eventually decide upon.

Thanks for the oil down the shin bone tip.

About photoshopping, I agree with you. "With great power, comes great responsibility"...If celebs join forces, they can completely bring this down..So are consumers, we need to be more vocal..

I love that Carrie Bradshaw's dress. I like how she is not wearing any bra and totally rocking it :)

This should have been;

"...because now women are convinced that our natural bodies are just NOT good enough for public view."

(the point doesn't make sense otherwise)

@Dusk: I think everything boils down to one thing "thin is beautiful, fat is ugly"..not sure how and when this got started but one thing lead to another and we have now models starving themselves to death..

Hey come on now...SJP is only a few years older than me... our breasts don't head south 'til about 50... :)

I have always loved her body, she's small but in proportion and I LOVE that she hasn't had facial cosmetic surgery. Magazines airbrush the hell out of her, which is rude but she hasn't done that to herself in reality... it's why the sexist pigs at Maxim voted her the unsexiest woman alive when really... what?? How?? She is hot!

As for the "thin is beautiful..." thought pattern... I can't get started on this because my comment is already an essay, it will become an epic. I'm tall and a US size 2-4. And by model standards today I'm considered big. wow.

Models starving themselves to death... I am that harsh about the hypocrisy of this industry I would just lead them to a cliff and 'help' them jump.

eeek. Just blogcommentshopped' myself. I'm a US size 4-6...had to check that because I'm not quite sure about American sizes. I'm an Australian size 8-10, so that's US size 4-6 right? ...this comment is neither important nor relevant but had to rectify my mistake!! I like my curves!

aahh....photoshop just gives them....a goddess kind of look....and for me.....Minnisha is.....other than that she is a hottie...... i fell for her while watching her debut movies.....such a talented actor......and beautiful at the same time......now many can boast of that combo in present Indian Movie Industry.............


i checked out the Britney's altered and unaltered pics......and till that very second....i had that goddess image of her in my mind.....now i know why Kevin married her and then dumped her........

i hope not many of the myths are broken like this.........i have a huge list of goddesses....
