the take down

March 13, 2012

I just ran across this Tumblr via The Gloss this morning: Celebrity Close-Up. It’s a bit mean-spirited, to be sure, but I found it cathartic: we are bombarded on a daily basis by Photoshopped, idealized images of celebrities with nary a neck wrinkle or fly away hair, and to see them in all of their blackheaded, pock marked, faintly mustachioed glory is refreshing. I wonder if some of these images are reverse-Photoshopped though–did they really leave the house with that whitehead?–or maybe I just can’t handle the truth.

I chose this image of Tyra Banks because her freckles are so cute!
