We know its all being done when we open a magazine..but its quite interesting so thought i'd share:

Madonna looks her age!

Some actually look better before p the photoshopping!

Half of them look pretty much the same and some of them look like the before photo has been altered to look really bad, let's hope for their sake it has.

Some do look better before.
What I think is interesting is the fact the pores are all photoshopped out. Also cellulite!!! I think Madonna looks her age in the first picture. Something about her eyes and shadows under them..i just cant place it. Some look the similar or just as good.

Oh and Kim Kardasian's thighs in the first shot! Maybe that has been made to look bad or to look like most women with normal thighs.

Agree with cat

Some of them look awful in the first photo, some of the older women just look good for their age in the first one but some of the younger ones look dreadful

Kim Katrall, Jennifer Anniston and George Clooney look amazing pre photo shopping.

They photoshopped a baby! confused

Lindsay Lohan's before photo really shows she's been embracing the party lifestyle. Yikes!

Emma Watson looks much better in her before picture. Same for Rachel Weisz and Kim Catrall.

At first i was shocked the photoshopped price George (because he is a baby) but i cant actually see what they did other than brighten the photo which i think is fair enough.

Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson look better before.

The after photos for some look ridiculously smudged. Not real at all.

The Ralph Lauren advert has always been a shocker.

Lots of them look better before, or much the same. But some (Lohan and Soears, who have visibly wrecked their skin) look dire before.

I like the way they closed Kristin Stewart's mouth.

Saw a baby mag in supermarket today with very clearly photoshopped baby on cover. Couldn't help exclaiming my disgust out loud, crazy old lady style ...

specialsubject Sun 08-Nov-15 14:36:22

some of the 'afters' look much worse!!

PacificDogwod Sun 08-Nov-15 14:43:57

Even baby George gets photoshopped!? shock

I am quite reassured that an old cynic like me can still be shocked by something so utterly pointless and vacuous.

I think all they've done to Prince George is correct the colour balance.

BigGreenOlives Sun 08-Nov-15 15:09:33

I think the worst is the Beyoncé Russian magazine cover - they've lightened her skin so much. Dreadful.

megletthesecond Sun 08-Nov-15 15:21:13

They removed Kourtney K's post birth stomach.

The older slebs do look fresher pre-photo shop. I think that's as well as cosmetic procedures they've looked after themselves. Unlike some of the younger ones.

Actually the most disturbing ones are the ones where they look great "before".

Jennifer lawrence looks amazing, but no, she must be slimmed down. Jennifer Aniston looks great, but the merest trace of a wrinkle or pore must be erased. Emma Watson must be given darker eyelashes and weird glowy eyes.

It's not just about erasing flaws any more, it's about making everyone look like a doll sad

minipie Sun 08-Nov-15 15:29:33

The Prince George one is interesting because they have given him blue eyes. He has brown eyes (which is a bit odd because his parents both have blue)

SoupDragon Sun 08-Nov-15 15:34:54

I think Kate's are green and George's look dark grey.
