Apparently you can fool all the people all the time
At least that's the story making the rounds about Dove's "Real Beauty" campaign, which was praised to the skies by many FA bloggers and others. According to this story, those unretouched photos of beautiful-but-not-"perfect" women may actually have been, you know, retouched.
I got a good laugh out of the last line of the story:
If only for the excessive amount of self-righteousness that accompanied the PR effort surrounding this ad campaign, let's sincerely hope these retouching allegations are true.
As one of the commenters points out, the company that owns Dove also owns Slimfast. Corporate hypocrisy, anyone?
