HOWEVER today I was browsing the Huffington Post (which, if I can take a moment to plug it, I really love) and I saw a story on Kourtney Kardashian (whom I am normally oblivious to, never having watching her show) relating to her 'post baby body'.
I really hate these stories, by the way. They are the most irrelevent piles of crap, just making people feel insecure. Because without a trainer to wake you up at 4am and crates of wheatgerm smoothies delivered to your door, there is no way you are going to lose 2 stone in a month. None.
Anyway. I deviate. The image on the front of the magazine is on the right, and on the left is the original, before they let the picture department loose on it:
They have literally just erased her stomach! I am so appalled. How magazines can try and sell themselves with completely fabricated stories, I don't understand. So not only is this story advertising an already highly unhealthy view of weight loss, the example they are using hasn't even happened! They may as well have Beyonce on the cover, telling everybody about how happy she is since she learnt to fly.
And not only did they remove her baby weight and then try to pass it off as the result of a diet, they changed the colour of her top... and her head. HER HEAD?! What the hell was wrong with her head??
