15 Side-by-Side Photos That Show the Difference Between a Perfect Picture and Reality

year ago

Like most of us, celebrities only post perfect pictures of themselves on social media. While this is entirely normal — no one wants their “lousy” photo to be seen by millions of fans — sometimes those perfect photos can give us the impression that we also have to look impeccable like them all the time. That’s why we decided to do a comparison and show what edited and unedited photos of celebrities look like.

I think I like the photographers shot more. I mean they're insanely beautiful either way but her hand looks a little too perfectly placed for me in her shot.

omgoddess Bryce dallas, that top is so not flattening. its awful. Yet so late 90s- early 00s. They'd have matched perfectly with the platforms of the same colour and style back then.
Also shame on you editing yourself as half your size. Pplneed to Be happy in their own skin or do something about it. Don't fake it. Otherwise the problems with self imagine, hate, insecurities etc etcetera, are still there. Only masked. When one changes their own perception. Then, they find true peace.
