It looked weird to me how the fabric of the shirt just sort of.. "Laid there on her breast" in a weird manner.. I have seen breasts before and I'm not a queen.. But something about her boobs didn't seem right.. Specially when you compare both of them in that picture because of you look at them, her left boob sort of just pops out because the shirt seems to be flat on her shoulders then just sticks out with her boobs.. So it wasn't even just the shape that bothered me. But like the other members here already pointed out to me, that some girls do just have pointy boobs.. And I'm replying to you because your comment does come off as offensive to me..

^ sorry if my comment came off the wrong way, i said that because you mentioned it yourself in your post..
tbh though, it did annoyed me that you posted that in a thread made to specifically mock at pictures, i thought it was offensive to Nyasha actually

Here's a funny one courtesy of H&M. Apparently all their photos are pieced together.


psdisasters.com

Interestingly, all the heads are just placed on the same computer-drawn body (in appropriate colour now.


jezebel.com

The bodies of most of the models H&M features on its website are computer-generated and "completely virtual," the company has admitted. H&M designs a body that can better display clothes made for humans than humans can, then digitally pastes on the heads of real women in post-production.
So they are pretty good at the pasting, except when they forget a face altogether. Eventually they will just licence a library of heads though.

H&M may be implying they cant find good enough models to use for their e commerce site. (huffingtonpost.com)

All that griping about how models' proportions are completely unrealistic? Turns out they are literally unrealistic -- as in, they are totally fake.
H&M has been sticking real models' heads on computer-generated bodies, reveals Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet (no, we don't usually read Swedish tabloids -- Jezebel tipped us off).
The head-body disconnect was first noticed in Norway via Bildbluffen ("Photo Bluff"), a site that identifies when photos have been doctored. But once they pointed out that a bunch of lingerie product shots from H&M's Christmas campaign featured fake bodies with real heads, we started to notice it ourselves (see below).
Luckily, H&M has fessed up. The company's press officer Hacan Andersson told Aftonbladet, "It's not a real body, it is completely virtual and made ​​the computer. We take pictures of the clothes on a doll [mannequin] that stands in the shop, and then create the human appearance with a program on your computer."
While this doesn't seem to apply to the ad campaigns featuring, say, Karen Elson and Abbey Lee Kershaw, it does happen with the models on H&M's e-commerce site.
The point seems to be that real bodies would be totally distracting for shoppers looking at product shots. "We do this to show off the clothes," says Andersson.
Not so fast, H&M. Aftonbladet writes that the model fake-out is actually occuring because H&M is simply not satisfied with the slew of models coming through its doors. Commented Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's Helle Vaagland:
"This illustrates very well the sky-high aesthetic demands placed on the female body. The demands are so great that H&M, among the poor photo models, cannot find someone with both body and face that can sell their bikinis."
Oy. So now we have fake, computer-generated models to make us feel bad about our bodies? This is an uphill battle, ladies -- and just another sign that models should not be looked to as examples of ideal physiques.

The purpose of the H&M images are to showcase clothes, for quick reference. Not to be some realistic, spot-on rendition of models. Personally, I don't find them offensive. However if they were printed inside their catalogues, I'd be stunned.

Sometimes journalists just need a story.

LOL, I know. Just another excuse for a wank. And you just know there will be those who will be appalled by that practice.

^ that's the signature style of the photographer. It may look fake and plastic, but that's the intention.

Plastic skin looks terrible even if it's a personal style of photographer

Beyonce's team just posted the image above to the singer's Facebook page with the caption:

"Here is your first look of Beyoncé on the cover of the winter issue of Jones Magazie.
The issue hits stands on 12/15 in New York and nationally on 12/20."
