Cindy Crawford’s Controversial Photoshoot
In the ever-changing world of celebrities, the term “fake” has enjoyed a ubiquitous presence. This is especially the case with well-known supermodels; the ugly word “Photoshop” cropping up (no pun intended) time and time again. While most of us are keen on viewing shoots that have not be retouched, it was recently discovered that a photo of Cindy Crawford posted by photographer John Russo was actually faked to look WORSE than the supermodel normally appears.
While it was claimed that the photo was taken last month, it has emerged that the image is actually from a Marie Claire shoot as far back as 2013. Interestingly enough, some are threatening a lawsuit by observing that it was severely altered. When it was first publicised, she was lauded (like many other models) for showing the “natural” side of a woman who is nearly 50 years old. The validity of the picture was finally proven to be false with a release of a picture of this brunette bombshell during this past Valentine’s Day.
It seems that the public has become very reactionary in terms of how models and celebrities appear. They should either display a porcelain appearance or every fold and wrinkle must be seen; there is no middle ground here. Regardless of the reasons behind this attitude, Mrs. Crawford has kept quiet while choosing to let the event run its course. Now, the photographer claims that the photos were stolen and is asking that they be removed from social media circles. It will be interesting to see whether or not the “originals” (if such a word can be used) will ever surface.
