Just a few days after actress Lena Dunham's Vogue cover hit the web, critics went in on her closely cropped photo and the heavily Photoshopped images on the inside of the magazine. It prompted Jezebel.com to offer up $10,000 to Vogue, Dunham, and photographer Annie Leibovitz for the un-edited versions- two hours later the request was granted and Jezebel received all the photos and decided to pick them a part. You can see more "before and after" photos on there site...

I can't with this on so many levels. Why pay $10,000 for something that happens to every model/celebrity on every major magazine ever? Did that $10,000 make their point? Why not put that money to some positive use instead of just lining some intern's pockets? (well, I guess it does help that intern out...) Why champaign Lena Dunham so hard and not Gabby Sidibe or Mindy Kaling or Adele?

Thank you for your comment Jasmine! I agree that move was very creepy, in a I can't quite explain it sort of way... I understand that Lena's show (which I have never seen) May deal with real size and body issues and I suppose they wanted her to appear that way in Vogue. But chile please, they know what it is! Magazines photoshop everything that comes across their pages, including clothes, accessories and food- for aesthetics sake and if they had of published the original photos (which actually were not even that badly edited) then Vogue would have been accused of something entirely different. I say we end all this nonsense by putting actual models (you remember the ones who get paid to take pictures, look perfect and promote clothes right lol) and let them be great!
