I had to search around to find a link that isn't DM

I think she looks fab

Good on her

Do you not think that she is just as airbrushed as skinny models though? And where are her nipples?!

That's so airbrushed it's almost an illustration.

Oh my goodness!

I like her skin and the folds light/shadow thing. Great picture.

Airbrushed within an inch of her life though (hence smooth, blemish-free skin presumably) and within considerably less than an inch of her nipples.

the nipples are quite strange - I admit

But I forgive even the gimmick aspect.


I like it

Yep, the covers are all about selling and for some reason big doesn't sell - according to those that make these decisions anyway. Black doesn't sell, old doesn't sell.

So you get the uniform white size 4 who's airbrushed to buggery if they're over 25.

and even if it is airbrushed

It is not size 6

roffle @ no nipples

Not allowed to show nipples on magazine covers so they have to be airbrushed out or covered in some way.

Seems they have done a mix of airbrushing and cleverly placed arty text.

Aww, I love Beth Ditto. Love the pic too, even if it is airbrushed [hope for me yet]

littlelamb Tue 17-Feb-09 00:13:47

I don't really get the point of it though. And I quite like Beth Ditto actually. But she has been airbrushed to within an inch of her life. Do people really think that someone that overweight looks like that in the buff??

harleyd Tue 17-Feb-09 00:14:06

i think its awful

elsiepiddock Tue 17-Feb-09 00:15:30

I think it's awful too! <hides>

twinsetandpearls Tue 17-Feb-09 00:22:23

I am overweight, not as much as Beth Ditto but do not look awful naked, I look damn hot actually.

I like the image.

Sazisi Tue 17-Feb-09 00:31:48

I love her. And the pic

drlove8 Tue 17-Feb-09 00:47:32

dont get why any woman would want to be photoed nude! dont care what size you are/ are not , somethings are best kept for your OH!wink

twinsetandpearls Tue 17-Feb-09 00:50:00

Because they love their bodies, an admirable quality

drlove8 Tue 17-Feb-09 01:03:57

i love mine, its great! lol, but i still wouldnt get the norks out in public! grin

mayorquimby Tue 17-Feb-09 12:14:35

not a pretty picture imho.

hippipotamiHasLostThreePounds Tue 17-Feb-09 12:20:32

I really like the picture. Proportion wise I have the same body shape. (but I have nips wink)
I would not be photographed nude, but I love her and the picture!

Minxie1977 Tue 17-Feb-09 12:52:18

I think Beth is a goddess - confident in her own skin, talented, individual and ground breaking. Personally I don't like the styling of the pic, I think the make up's vile but Beth is amazing. Did anyone see her host The Sunday Night Project a while back? I was a total fan after that, she was a nautral!
