Target recently came out with an advertisement that has stirred up lots of controversy. So much, the company immediately took down the advertisement. Target went a little too far with Photoshop. The model's underarm and thighs were obviously "touched up."
The thigh gap is apparently and sadly the new teenage trend and concern for female's body images. A Target spokesman Evan Miller told ABCNews.com: “It was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize. We removed the image from the site and we’re working to get a new image up there.” Even, if they were to post a new modeled photograph…wouldn't it just be photoshopped again, just better?Whoever was in charge of reviewing the final product of that photograph should be fire, but nonetheless it could have been out of spite of such a ludicrous trend in society. Perhaps, this person in charge of the photoshop job did this was being rebellious and did it on purpose to prove a point. Point prove, thigh gaps are ridiculous, and people shouldn't stress over having one or not, there's more important things in life to worry about.
[her thighs/pelvis were edited, ribs, and underarms]I think the representation of products on models is an interesting concept: if all images are photoshopped will consumers buying those products actually be buying those products? If the picture doesn't match the final product in stores, what is the point of even modeling it and editing the photo? The Targetswimsuit was photoshopped to the point where is would not look or fit the way the model wore it, so it would in theory do the same thing to the buyer.
