Beautiful Faith Hill Not Good Enough for Redbook

Apparently, Redbook doesn’t think Faith Hill is beautiful enough for them and they needed to make her arms beyond skinny, her waist impossibly small (without a corset) and more. Not even the previous placement of her arm was good enough for Redbook.

This is the same magazine that screams, “Summer Party Ideas! Good Food! Good Fun!”

The next time you pick up a magazine and compare yourself to the woman on the cover, remember that it’s not real. Even Faith Hill is probably comparing herself to that woman on the cover of Redbook and nitpicking herself.

Lots of people are talking about this:

If you are appalled by this, remember that ALL the magazines do this. Redbook just got caught. Don’t pay one more penny for women’s magazines. If you really want to read them, just read them in the grocery store and put them back. They don’t deserve your money.

    Oh my god! I saw this on the store shelves & was surprised at how skinny she looked. I guess I know why.

    I was even considering subscribing to a women’s magazine too, just to help me keep in touch with my “girlie” side. I think I’ll stick with Parent’s Magazine.

    Thanks for the info, Laura!

    I’m starting to think that there should be labels under pictures if they are photoshopped. We can’t help but take in visual clues as reality on some level, and I’d like just a little extra info.

    I like the human version of Faith Hill.

    A great SHAME on REDBOOK for the photo-shop and chop regarding FAITH HILL and the cover of the July Issue. Considering this is a woman’s magazine that reaches a broader audience, it’s pitiful to think that Redbook editors are contributing to the female image degridation in our society. As a Male, even I was insulted that Redbook can preach the moral values of female stability and deserved place in everyday society, yet discriminate against the average woman’s natural beauty and create an “alien” image of what they deemed was a Faith Hill deserving of the cover. Of course it is well known that a handful of other mags occaasionaly distort what they see as “physical imperfections”, but Redbook really sliced into the famale image persona this time. Woman have it hard enough as it is with the media portrayel of beauty and what is expected to pass for beautiful. I can only imagine how FAITH HILL or her family must feel themselves, viewing the edited image of her on the cover and questioning how REDBOOK editors really preceived her during the photoshoot. My wife and both daughters have cancelled their subscription to REDBOOK, I can only hope that others do the same.

    Wow, thank you so much for sharing this story. I am one of the gullible ones who usually believes that the pictures are real, and that the celebrities really DO look like that! Since I’m an actress myself, it puts a lot of pressure on me to live up to the celebrity ideal. It helps me a lot when I see the real picture next to the fake one. I appreciate you sharing that with us!

    Wow unbelievable. It makes me not want to buy Redbook….although not much made me want to buy it in the first place…it’s a boring magazine. Faith looked good in the before. If I was the photo editor I would have touched up the wrinkles under the eyes but that’s it, just for the cover…sort of like a “soft focus” thing. The worst magazines for this kind of impossible perfection touch ups are mags like Maxim, Stuff.. and the other guy magazines that exploit women.

    As if Faith Hill isn’t gorgeous enough already. How stupid of Redbook – she didn’t need retouching.

    1. I love Faith Hill. While she is gorgeous to look at, her inner beauty far surpasses her physical beauty (even the touched up beauty). I think they butchered her…

    2. Every single publication and advertisement on the market touches up photos before print… even gossip rags, porn, men’s magazines, kid magazines, and car magazines. Nothing should surprise us anymore. Wait until you see a ‘before’ shot of a cover with a celebrity and her baby… it’ll happen.

    3. I love Faith Hill. (sigh)

    does it really matter? So what if they made her a little skinnier or prettier? you shouldnt really care, they wanted an image for their cover and liked her. why does it matter if they fixed her up a little, stop being so self concious.
