Kate Winslet Sexy In Vanity Fair

Years ago Actress Kate Winslet spoke of her disgust at what airbrushing had done to her womanly curves. Today she poses for a sexy Vanity Fair where she is sprawled across a fur-covered chaise lounger.

While Kate hasn’t commented publicly about the photos, professional airbrush artist Chris Bickmore believes these photos have also been doctored.

Here he outlines the areas that he thinks have been upgraded:

  • The face: ‘There is no real detail in her face. Any detail or wrinkles have been removed. There are no eye bags, contours and smile lines.

    ‘The whites of her eyes have been cleaned up and are now a really clean, crisp white. I’d say her lips have possibly been made slightly fuller as well.’

  • The skin: ‘Her skin has generally been retouched all over so she has no lines or blemishes at all. Her skin is completely perfect.’
  • The hands and feet: ‘There are no wrinkles or lines or veins on her hands and feet and this just is not natural.’
  • The figure: ‘Her back and lower body have been pinched in to make her look thinner and to give her some curves.

    ‘Her bottom has been rounded off so it looks nice and pert. I would be very surprised if her bottom was like that naturally. Her thigh appears to have been made slimmer so it appears more toned.

    ‘And in the shot of her sitting down on the front cover, it’s possible her legs were made slightly thinner so they also appear more toned.’

  • Professional retoucher here… Yeah, she’s definitely been retouched.

    -The whites of the eyes have been overbrightened
    -Facial skin has been oversmoothed–no pores/imperfections/wrinkles in her forehead, chin, cheeks, etc. I didn’t even see any replacement “orange skin” texture substituted for what they wiped out
    -Body skin retouched as well
    -The sharp “tuck” between the bottom of her bum and top of her thigh looks artificially created
    -Ankles look “tucked” to look thinner and more shapely, especially the ankle closest to her head
    -Shadow and toning on the thigh looks very artificial
    -Waist looks like a classic “liquify” warp
    -Nose and nostrils look straightened & shrunken, respectively
    -Lips look as if they’ve been plumped

    All of this in addition to overall color and density moves…
