Everyone knows Lily Aldridge as the beautiful Victoria’s Secret angel that lacks any sort of flaw, but this just in: LILY ALDRIDGE HATES PHOTOSHOP! Recently, she has stated her dislike for the program and the industries use of it, because they have a tendency to “go crazy” with the editing. It’s almost impossible to come across a photo in today’s society that has not been re-touched in some way. Whether it be a change in eye color, a smaller nose, or a trimmed down waist, a non-edited photo is hard to come by these days.
“I honestly don’t like Photoshop. I think that when people Photoshop things, all of a sudden you’re like, ‘That’s not even me anymore.’ It takes away the natural beauty of a person.” You go girl. There is nothing more empowering than someone speaking out about the beauty of natural beauty. Many tend to view Victoria’s Secret models as the perfect examples of what everyone should look like, but even they admit that they don’t look like that.
“I have a gap in my teeth and sometimes people take it away. But I’m like, ‘I love my teeth.’ You know, that’s fine, but don’t go crazy.” Don’t worry, Lily, we love your natural smile, and we love that you love it, too.
So the next time you’re flipping through your Victoria’s Secret catalog, thinking, “I wish I looked like that,” just remember, the exact models in that catalog are wishing the same exact thing.
