Will the real Karlie Kloss please.....maybe eat a sandwich?
Top model Karlie Kloss (who is twenty years old and grew up in Webster Groves) is now gracing the pages of the French fashion mag, Numéro -- well, a certain photoshopped version of her is, at least. And some people aren't happy about it.

Including the artiste behind the lens, photographer Greg Kadel, who grew so displeased with what Numéro did to his shots of Kloss, he e-mailed New York Magazine to say that he was "shocked and dismayed" at the "unacceptable and unnecessary" airbrushing.

Kadel's original photo looked like this:

How could you not tell this is shopped? I'm pretty sure it's shopped...and I should know because I've seen a few shops in my day.

Look, I know I shouldn't be hating on anybody's body image, but ...

 

Maybe they photoshopped it because it's impossible to look at that top photograph and not think "Auschwitz survivor"? or "famine victim" at the very least? No, wait, I've got it, I know why I'm having such a visceral reaction to this: she looks like an AIDS patient from back in the days of AZT, she's reminding me of friends I almost lost because the drug that was treating their viral infection was starving them to death by making it impossible to keep food, or even water, down.

 

What kind of disgusting person finds this attractive?

@AMBabka It's only print industries blurring the lines?

 @jbradhicks The photog who took the pictures, in fact. He said it showed her as "slender, athletic and beautiful."

@AMBabka I know. That's why I had to ask.
