Victoria's Secret Photoshop Disaster
The American Medical Association cited an example that sounded a lot like the Ralph Lauren ad back in 2009 where the model's body had been pinched to a grossly teeny-tiny degree, according to <a href="http://consumerist.com/2011/06/american-medical-association-denounces-photoshop-for-fostering-eating-disorders.html">The Consumerist</a>. "Exposure to media-propagated images of unrealistic body images has been linked to eating disorders and other child and adolescent health problems," the group said in a press release.

Britney Spears Releases Undoctored Photos
Kelly Osbourne starred in ad campaign for St. Tropez tan that has received backlash for a featured video in which she says that getting the tan made her feel slimmer. "I looked, like, 10 pounds skinnier and it started to make me look at my body in a different way," Osbourne says in the ad. Prince Charles' charity withdrew support for the campaign after protests from a parental pressure group called "PinkStinks" mounted. "When we first saw the video we were gobsmacked," said Emma Moore, who founded PinkStinks with her twin, Abi. "There are so many damaging and mixed messages. They are talking about selfesteem and then there are pictures of Kelly Osbourne airbrushed to within an inch of her life. To have those messages endorsed by a high-profile charity seemed very wrong."
