Author apparently doesn't know the difference between a retouched photo and a painting referencing a photo or live model.

He be dumb.

I can forgive Subby, they're probably hung over or never learned to read, but the Daily Fail should at least TRY to get the story correct.

Now, on to the important portion of this thread: Miss Bettie Page

jaytkay: I *think* Vanity Fair pinups are closely based on 40s & 50s pinups, but a quick Google did not provide. But anyway...

I think these photos are absolutely gorgeous. They manage to look so incredibly sexy and hypnotically alluring without any patina of sluttiness. "Pinup" is a true art form, dammit!

Ya know, the side bar for TFA features a woman with size 102 ZZZ boobs, a follow-up on the America's Next Top Model story from yesterday, an interview with the "world's ugliest woman", a story about how non-Caucasian models are bleaching their skin to look like white girls, and an article called "10 Reasons I Wish I was a Lesbian" - and what gets the green light is this non-story where subby can't tell the difference between airbrushing a photograph and a painting based on a photograph.

What, no Art Frahm?

That Frahm guy had a real fetish for women with panties falling down - and carrying groceries with celery in the bag.

No, really.

Yeah subby, it's why they called it "airbrushing" in the first place, but thanks for the link to the cool pinup art at least...

And if modern photos were used as the basis for obvious illustrations, no one would have a problem with it.
