QUIZ: Iris v Arnim

If you view this submission from the right angle, the sweater seems to be hanging on nothing at all.

Photoshop Disasters

What say you, readers? Is this another instance of a photoshopper whittling a model down to skin and cheek bones, or are my realistic expectations regarding the female form skewing my perspective?

Thanks Sylvain. The photo is supposed to be off Kristen Stewart and you can see the original here.

  • VBW

    The left side of her face is the biggest disaster. Her chin could double as a chisel.

    I’ll be damned if that’s Kristen Stewart. Blarg.

  • Bill

    Looks like Dan Radcliffe..

  • Andulamb

    Whatever this is, it’s hideous. If it’s a PSD, they did too much. If it’s not a PSD, they did too little.

  • Dances with Lasagna

    The bottom half of that picture doesn’t go with the top half. And where is her other leg?

  • M.

    If that’s Kristen Stewart and not a haphazard collection of mismatched body parts with Kristen Stewart’s face slapped over the top, I’m Captain Planet.

  • Waldobaby

    Looks like someone wanted to be edgy. All of this harsh little thing can be explained away, but (if you were to accept the explanations) that leaves a pic that should have been shopped but wasn’t. Maybe it’s a four-shots-of-Jägermeister disaster…

  • R. I.

    Smudge fail.

  • Nuri 148

    Of course that id NOT Kristen Stewart. Here’s the original from the advertiser’s web, the same model appears in the other photos of the series: http://www.irisvonarnim.de/mantel-marshall-pullover-marietta/?cid=14

    (The other photos are not better)
    (This model clearly has more facial expressions than KS)

      Thanks for posting that link. It really clears things up. The model is gross, and the photographer doesn’t know how to pose her. That is, assuming he was going for something that looks human, and that isn’t high on something.

      I’m happy to hear that, I thought I was insane for not thinking it was her.

  • omnichad

    What we’re seeing is her left leg. Her right leg starts out behind the hanging clothes and crosses behind her left leg just at the very bottom of the photo.

    Chances are good that her other leg originally peeked out to the right of the visible leg and they airbrushed that out because it looked “weird.” But it looks like it could be possible for that not to have been touched up. With her hip twisted like that, her right leg would have to be planted pretty far behind her to have any sort of balance.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think the wonkiness of this photo has anything to do with photoshop. Could we all chip in and buy this poor thing a Burger King gift card? Then we can all sign petitions saying we refuse to buy anything from any store that uses anorexic-looking models.
