When I saw the photo of Jessica Simpson in the red dress last week, I immediately thought day’um!! Simpson reminded me of ME when I was pregnant: MASSIVE, swollen and uncomfortable. Basically, she too is all tummy and boobies (yes, I said boobies).
And then I saw her Elle Magazine cover today. Yes, that Simpson looks NOTHING like the pregnant me. As I stare at this flawless photo, I’m thinking that all 8 month pregnant women MUST get hair extensions… it does a big belly wonders.
Second thought, it’s cheaper to invest in Adobe Photoshop.
I LOVE Adele, her music and her style. I think she’s gorgeous, funny and beyond talented. She’s also NOT super skinny and that makes her even more appealing to me and millions of other women.
So, I’m was a wee bit disappointed after seeing the photos of Adele inside the March 2012 issue of Vogue.
Adele looks amazing, but also super slim. An amazing weight loss? Not so fast.
Take a look Adele just last night at the Grammys in Los Angeles.
And this is Adele from the latest issue of Vogue.

She’s definitely dropped some pounds over the past few months, but nothing as dramatic as the editors of Vogue would like us to believe.
For some reason, the magazine editors felt the need to photoshop about 20 pounds off her frame and face. Vogue had an opportunity to be authentic and to represent who Adele is at her core, an extremely talented and beautiful woman. Instead, the magazine sends a horrible message— that being who you are isn’t quite good enough to grace the covers of Vogue, despite the fact that you have sold almost 20 million albums and won 6 Grammys.
My Take: This was a boneheaded decision by Vogue.
Your Take: I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
