Come on now!

This controversial photgraph that appeared in a Ralph Lauren ad shows what happens when airbrushing goes too far. The image was airbrushed so drastically that the model’s waist actually appeared to be smaller than her head.

After a brief series of denials, Ralph Lauren admitted to modifying the image. (http://www.stylelist.com/2009/10/09/update-ralph-lauren-takes-responsiblity-for-distorted-ad/)

As long as behaviors like  this are common among magazines, fashion designers, and the media, it is even more important that the messages gets out to girls. You don’t have to compare yourself to anything, especially to images that  are impossible to live up to.
