23 Animated Gifs of Celebrities Before and After Retouching

The article says 24 but the last one is a joke. The “after” images could be triggering so use your own discretion about if you can handle looking at “perfect” airbrushed bodies, also, this post discusses body image and its relation to the fashion industry so use caution.

My friend on Facebook shared this article and I knew I had to share. It shows pictures of celebrities before and after retouching. Some of these “after” images are so different from the “before” images that the people in them don’t look like the same persons and it would be comical if it wasn’t so frightening. It’s frightening because of the completely unrealistic standards of “beauty” it establishes — if these people society tells us are beautiful can’t obtain that standard then how can we?

Anyway, here is the article. Non-hyperlinked version:
