As Erin Heatherton tells Fashionista, “This is what happens when you do a photo shoot; retouching is an essential part of our job. We’re not selling reality; we’re selling a story. It’s all about creating this fantasy. And I don’t think people should confuse fantasy and reality because no one is perfect — I think people should embrace themselves and not really focus on where people are depicted as perfect and where they’re not … [A] healthy body image is not something that you’re going to learn from fashion magazines.” On the plus side, you can still learn how to wear “fifty shades of pink.”
