It’s time for the big reveal for our unretouched cover-image contest, and, well, our winner is the July cover of Redbook, on which country singer Faith Hill (and, on a separate cover, her hubby Tim McGraw) appeared as beautiful and accessible-seeming as usual…[Jezebel.com]

I find myself mesmerized by this, I keep looking at it… it won’t stop. She looks normal, then she looks plastic. Then she looks normal… no wonder women have issues with their body image. There’s no personal in-home ‘photoshop’ kit you can apply to your body in the morning before work. If there is, please let me know, but until then – things like this are just kinda wrong.
