Speaking of kilos less or more in fashion is very complicated, someone always gets hurt, offended or misunderstood. The latest controversy comes on the heels of Numéro magazine and an editorial photographed by Greg Kadel with Karlie Kloss protagonist.
The images took days gaining attention for its extreme thinness, bones here and there and obviously naked. What was not expected was that the retouching done for the magazine has been the subject of gossip. The photographer has expressed total disagreement because his work has been transformed.
"It was Greg's desire to Represent Karlie as she naturally is. . . slender, athletic, and beautiful. That is why I released the images as I Intended to Be Seen them by the public. He is shocked and dismayed That unbeknownst to him, took it upon Numéro Themselves to airbrush over the original historical images. Greg stands by his original artwork and I can not stress enough That was not only unaware of the magazine's retouching But Also Finds the airbrushing of Karlie unacceptable and unnecessary. "
Perhaps the desire to photograph Greg out of the most natural way possible, does it mean that there was not a shred of photoshop? (NO). Maybe the art of a photographer should be as respected as an Ecce Homo by Leonardo Da Vinci but no, those ribs are not beautiful . They are not natural, nor acceptable.
It is no coincidence that the Spanish affair ecce homo has got the gossip and fashion is mented to support the thesis that a work of art and should not be retouched.
