Hot or Not?

Dove have been extending their ‘Campaign for Real Beauty’ with this short video showing how an average looking person is transformed into a billboard beauty model through a combination of lighting, make-up, styling and, finally, excessive PhotoShop tweaking. Scary. No wonder girls have such distorted views of their own beauty these days. One idea I had a while back about this was that beauty adverts should all have health warnings on them akin to cigarettes, explaining that these images are not real people and explaining what’s been done to them.
