A little reminder that even Supermodels don’t look like Supermodels. Airbrushing, recoloring, even Feature Reassignment. Part of Dove’s Campaign For Real Beauty.

Teen Girl Petitions Seventeen Magazine to Stop Airbrushing Models

Wed, May 2, 2012 9:00 AM EDT

Julia Bluhm, 14, is an eighth grader from rural Waterville, Maine. She loves ballet and attends class six days a week. She is also gaining national attention as an activist who is challenging the media to take responsibility for the way it warps girls’ self-esteem.

“I’ve always noticed how a lot of the images in magazines look photo-shopped,” Bluhm tells Yahoo! Shine. She wants all girls to feel comfortable in their own skin. “Girls shouldn’t compare themselves to pictures in magazines,” she says. “Because they are fake.”

Eleven days ago, she launched a petition to ask one of her favorite magazines, Seventeen, to feature one un-retouched photo shoot a month.
