and here she is photoshopped on the cover of Allure...

Celia, you make a pertinent point about girl's self esteem and how fixing picutes and magazine covers sends a bad and puzzling message to everyone especially girls. And to answer your question Celia, those magazines think you and females in general are naive when it comes to magazine covers. They think you don't understand what they are doing. But you do anyway.
