Supermodels are known for being skinny but this is just plain weird. Victoria's Secret is under fire for allegedly Photoshopping its model to the point that she no longer looks human.
The photo, which was posted on Instagram, features models Martha Hunt and Stella Maxwell. Martha's visible arm looks really slimmed down while her left elbow appears unnaturally disjointed behind her. Is Martha a contortionist?!
Commenters on Instagram quickly pointed to Photoshop as the culprit. "Loving the Photoshop on the left," said one. Adds another, "Did anyone actually look at this photo before it was published?"
This isn't the first time the lingerie brand has been criticized for going overboard with retouching. Refinery29 spoke to a professional retoucher for Victoria's Secret who says that body alterations are totally normal. Sometimes, they'll even replace entire body parts! “There's a lot of the switching bodies up. Can you change these arms with a different girl's arms," she cites as an example.
Moral of the story? Don't believe anything you see.
