Thanks for the link. A website called Jezebel recently ran a before and after on some photoshopping done on Faith Hill. It was incredible. It was also quite funny. if I find the link I'll post it.

And to the Cat: Unfortunately a LOT of teenage girls believe the media images that they see in magazines. You'd think that with all the actual images of Britney out there that people would not buy Allure, but they will. Manipulation works -- that's why the media continue to do it.

Now Shape magazine puts a generic blonde on the cover. Maria is practically unrecognizable, what with the new face, shoulders, bod, legs...etc etc

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.

Bonjour Becca. It's true Masha does look gangly at times which creates the misconceptioon that's she's skinny. I do wonder how much more weight she will add to her frame and if it wil hurt her game and great groundstokes.

Why is Allure so desperate that they need to put Britney Spears on the cover when she hasn't done anything as a singer in a few years and is out of control as a mother of 2 young children? I bet the magazine sales for Spears September 2007 cover dissapoint Allure.

Here's a close-up of Maria'a face. SHAPE definitely changed the shape of her nose (they cut off the end and lifted it a bit), and softened some of the angularity of her face.

Not to argue semantics, but how exactly would you define "thin", then?

Alot of people keep saying how thin Maria is. But I don't think she's as thin as most people think. I think Maria Sharapova stands between 6'2" and 6'3" tall and weighs about 175 pounds. Goldenlox who is a girl and an expert on the female physique thinks Maria weighs 180 pounds. Masha has gotten a fair bit thicker in recent years as her untampered with photos prove. But because she's so tall she still looks slender to some people and especially when her photos are fixed to make her look thinner.

Masha's not thin, even though her height makes her look like she is.
