Fashion Exposed: Too Much Photoshop?

In recent years it is impossible to get away from photoshopped images. Usually it isn't that much a problem, it is definitely up for debate though. Are we pushing women and men too far by giving them unrealistic ideals? Do magazines sell better because of these views?
 There are many different points about this topic but I want to address how much photoshop is losing its path of nip and tuck here and there, hair removal and location change, and completely changing appearances, making women unattainably skinny and even going so far as to use two peoples body parts. Is it acceptable to do this if you've paid for both models work?? I have compiled a few images that I think are just going too far. Have a look and decide for yourself.

Ralph Lauren caused huge controversy for editing Valentina Zelyaeva to be an incredibly unrealistic size.

Ralph Lauren also gave Tao Okamoto the same treatment recently. Giving her a waist the size of a toddlers.

Emily Didonato for Armani Acqua Di Gio

It is assumed that Demi Moore's head was put on Anja Rubik's body and edited to match skin

Harper's Bazaar even went as far as giving the girls of the runway fake smiles on their runway report issue.

Dolce & Gabbana used Gemma Ward's face on Lily Donaldson body form their 2008 campaign as you can see below:

  3. It's crazy that they're getting awa with it, but I'm glad to see people are so passionate about it.

  4. the sad thing is an awful lot of people will think these images are real. it just sets the bar impossibly my personal opinion some of those photos are actually sick but by designers using them and the media printing them it gives the message that this is the fashionable aesthetic that should be adhered to :(
