Supermodel Karlie Kloss was photoshopped to look less thin for a Numero campaign. There are so many things wrong with this. Models are forced to be incredibly thin to fit a certain aesthetic, but when they do, they’re so emaciated that they have to be photoshopped to not look sick.
Robin Hardy, a former creative director at Vogue, has commented on the practice of photoshopping to cover up the aesthetic and health costs of extreme thinness:
“At the time, when we pored over the raw images, creating the appearance of smooth flesh over protruding ribs, softening the look of collarbones that stuck out like coat hangers, adding curves to flat bottoms and cleavage to pigeon chests, we felt we were doing the right thing…
But now, I wonder. Because for all our retouching, it was still clear to the reader that these women were very, very thin. But, hey, they still looked great!
They had 22-inch waists (those were never made bigger), but they also had breasts and great skin. They had teeny tiny ankles and thin thighs, but they still had luscious hair and full cheeks.
Thanks to retouching, our readers… never saw the horrible, hungry downside of skinny. That these underweight girls didn’t look glamorous in the flesh. Their skeletal bodies, dull, thinning hair, spots and dark circles under their eyes were magicked away by technology, leaving only the allure of coltish limbs and Bambi eyes.”
This is a tough reality, that shouldn’t even exist
Wait so the left side is how she really looks and they photoshoped her to look not sickly?
That’s extra fucked up. I mean yay for Photoshop in this situation but BOOOOOOOOOOO for the modeling industry.
This world is sick. We’re making curvy people skinnier, and skinny people more curvy or “healthier”, please stop this madness

"The idea that we have the right to inflict suffering and death on other sentient beings for the trivial reasons of palate pleasure and fashion is, without doubt, one of the most arrogant and morally repugnant notions in the history of human thought".

Jay-z and Beyonce are going vegan for 22 days. Jesus Christ!!! An entire 22 days of eating nothing but vegan food. Surely, this is some kind of record. Nobody can possibly sustain that kind of existence for an entire 3 weeks. I really hope the people at Guiness and Ripley have heard about this monumental feat. Jay-Z and Beyonce are probably going to run out of money paying for edible plants. After all, vegan food doesn’t just grow on trees.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.
Chickpea Flour Omelette with spinach, tomato & brown mushrooms
What? You don’t need eggs to make an omelette? Say that again?
Yep. It’s true. Even if you aren’t vegan, I dare you to try this version. Especially if you are a chickpea fan. The flour gives a strong sour taste to the omelette, that when combined with spices and veggies is just amazing.
Ingredients (one big portion):
- 120g of chickpea flour
- 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp of ground chia seeds
- 1 tbsp of baking powder
- salt, pepper and tumeric to taste
Cooking method inspired by this recipe.
FUCK YES. Vegan omelettes are so delicious when made well.
