Here we go again! This week, the Tumblr-digging sleuths of the Internet underworld unearthed an unholy treasure from 2011: Canadian fashion mag Flare’s cover featuring Jennifer Lawrence—both before and after her Photoshop treatment.
Of course, we’ve been here before. The phantom hands, elongated torsos, and computer-designed bodies are laughable, but what’s been done to our fair J.Law is downright unnecessary editing. We much prefer her look pre-retouching—what have you done with her natural, youthful glow? We’ll chalk this one up to 2011 lameness, but from now on: Don’t mess with our girl Katniss.
Let us know what you think about this cover in the comments below. We’ve asked before and we’ll ask again: Do you think Photoshopped images should be explicitly labeled?
