“Shame on Shape Magazine!
They insist that they are all about being real and true and loving your body, not to mention their push to be fit and healthy the “natural” way but they were apparently so desperate to have Kelly Bensimon on their cover that they allowed her and her ex-husband Gilles Bensimon to make complete fools of them with this cover shot!
Kelly insisted that her ex-husband, the greatest photographer in the universe, Gilles Bensimon handle the photo shoot and he was given complete control to edit the photo as he felt necessary. Gilles and Kelly had final approval on the cover photo and were allowed to do any airbrushing or photo-shopping that they wanted to do. We’ll never know how long it took Gilles to make Kelly look like someone else entirely, I’m not even sure that is Kelly’s hair in the Shape photo.
Sure most photographs in magazines are airbrushed but this is ridiculous! Look at her torso, magically erased are the weird indentations and the funky bumps and grooves in her mid section. Her signature circular indent just below her breasts that Kelly once explained she’s had since giving birth is mysteriously gone. It looks like she swallowed a shower curtain ring and it lodged between her breasts, but not on the Shape cover. Gilles earned his money as he made it disappear.
Maybe Gilles doesn’t know that Kelly tweets her own photos on Twitter constantly including several of herself in a bikini and that Kelly hasn’t found a hairbrush she likes. Apparently Shape Magazine doesn’t know it either!
Calls were made to Shape Magazine, they have yet to respond.
