This week Ann Taylor released their new ad campaign, featuring an incredibly firm and wrinkle-free Demi Moore (peculiar considering her age). She is so airbrushed that she looks 20 years younger, or rather like a completely different person. Since I work in the fashion industry, I personally turn a cheek to airbrushing, but transforming 50-year-olds into 16-year-olds has recently recaptured my interest. With all the press from the UK’s ban on ads of overly airbrushed models, I think it would be nice to be served with a dose of reality. A wrinkle and a dark spot here or there would be rather refreshing, and possibly give hope to the average women of the world.

Just last week the UK Advertising Standards Authority banned L’Oreal ads featuring Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts. Obviously, we all know and accept these to be airbrushed, so why the ban? The ads feature anti-aging products that take credit for the mysterious disappearance of their wrinkles. Members of parliament deemed these ads to be false advertising and decided that the images could be detrimental to women. To this I say right on UK Parliament! We know foundation can’t give you a face lift; let’s lay off the Photoshop. Let the crow’s feet and sagging eyelids run free.

So once again, I will be valentine-less this February the 14th. But hey, why not go out and see this romantic comedy with the girls? And then if one of them is attached, tell her to go screw herself. And then possibly her boyfriend.

We’ve got Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, Patrick Dempsey, and Queen Latifah, to name a few. Oh, and don’t forget Taylor Swift and her ever-dreamy boyfriend Taylor Lautner (Yes, New Moon surely has turned me to Team Jacob). (more…)
