Apparently the oppression of women by the propagation of unrealistic images of their bodies is not Photoshop’s fault! Here are 20 classic pin up girls and the photos they came from. Apart from change in scenery and removal of some items of clothing, most notable changes include:
- lightened hair colour
- narrower waist
- skinnier thighs
- faces narrowed, with more prominent cheekbones
- hair lengthened
- facial expression brightened
And there I was thinking that women 50 years ago were simply blonder, thinner and prettier than us modern day gals!
