Well Played, France
French Elle is taking a bold step that in America is only taken by confidant middle aged ladies in magazines like Shape, their April issue is dedicated to images of stars without makeup OR retouching.
I'm curious to see the finished product, and whether or not the theme blankets the entire issue, or merely a cover and spread. I'm banking on the latter, but would be fairly impressed if i were wrong.
How long will it be before American Elle follows suit? I guess we'll see. Why didn't they think of this before? Tabloids seem to sell like crazy everytime they throw together a couple dozen candid shots of celebrities looking like normal people, i'm sure with some high gloss fashion photography, big guns like Elle or Vogue could do even better. But then again, we do like our photoshopping, don't we?
