Why on earth would you airbrush

Our lovely new Duchess of Cambridge?

May 5th, 2011

Almost 3 years to the day, ago an irresponsible magazine annoyed me so much I decided to start my own.

Today, here I am again compelled to blog about Belinda White’s article in the Telegraph:

Kate Middleton slimmed down by Grazia?

Well, I’ll leave it to you to decide but I certainly think her waist looks smaller on the Grazia front cover than in the beautiful images from her actual wedding. (And what’s up with leaving the gorgeous Duke out of the image?).

The Duchess of Cambridge is absolutely beautiful. She looked stunning on her wedding day.

Sitting on the Isle of Arran watching the ceremony, I won’t forget easily how moving the whole event was and felt privileged to watch it.

So why on this earth would a national magazine, with such a huge influence on women across the UK chose to air brush in this way?

Unnecessary. Bad taste.  And sets an unbelievably unhealthy example to women everywhere.

Grazia, if this image has been altered, shame on you.
