cindy crawford photoshop

Last month, a photo of Cindy Crawford (left) leaked to the net that was reportedly part of a Marie Claire issued featuring non-photoshopped models. The next day, Crawford’s husband posted a pic (right) of the then 48-year-old, now 49-year-old, model with the caption, “She got flowers and I got her. Happy Valentines Day @cindycrawford!”

Two photos of the same woman. Two very different stomachs and thighs.

According to the photographer who took the photo and Crawford’s attorney who wrote in a letter obtained by TMZ it was the picture on the left that was “stolen” and “maliciously altered.” 

John Russo shot the photos for the December 2013 cover and spread of Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America.

“It has been falsely claimed that this photograph represents an un-retouched image of Cindy Crawford. This is not true,” he said Monday in a statement to ABC News. “It is a fraudulent altered version of my photograph. I am grateful that this fact has been brought to the public’s attention and that corrections are being run in the media.”

I know personally that I WANTED to believe that the photos were real. Not because I like seeing a beautiful woman with flaws but because I had a lot of respect for her being proud and sexy while showing the world the effect of age on her body .

I should have realized that in no way does Cindy Crawford have normal genes. Look at her! She does not age like normal people. Not to mention, it’s her job to keep herself looking tight and fit.

She does admit that life has had an effect on her body, even if it isn’t to the extent of the altered photo. In a past interview she said, “When I was 23 other women could look at me and say, ‘Well, she’s never had kids,’ but now I have and I know what it’s like to have to lose baby weight. It is a huge change for your body. You don’t even want to look in the mirror after you’ve had a baby because your stomach is hanging there like a Shar-Pei.” 

Now I just want to know what exercises she did to get rid of the Shar-Pei effect!
