Sports Illustrated Swimsuite Issue: disappointed
Feb 18, 2012

I think SI has crossed the line and gone way too far in retouching the photos. The models now resemble, to me, manikins with skin that unrealistically smooth and plasticy looking. Not only that, but if you look at the videos of the models (that aren't retouched) you can see that they've not only 'shopped the skin, but shapes, as well. A lot.

Maybe I'm just getting too old, but I really prefer the older shots when the women looked like live human beings.

Signed, your resident grouch.
No Signature.
