Roberto Cavalli's "PHOTOSHOP" Of Beyonce's Curves In Latest Press Release Is Causing DRAMA....Chime In
Photographers and advertisers love Beyonce....but her curves....not so much. Or was it all just a sketch-like take on the curvy chick's much praised bod? See the latest Beyonce "photoshop" controversy inside....
Earlier this year, the execs over at H&M felt the wrath of "Team Mrs. Carter" after they apparently tried to photoshop her famous curves during their swimsuit campaign. Now, Robert Cavalli has also slipped some photoshop trickery into the mix.
This week, the team over at Roberto Cavalli raised a few eyebrows after a press release of Beyonce wearing a gown they designed for The Mrs. Carter Show world tour went viral.
The document showed a rendering of Beyonce in the Cavalli gown, but with a slightly distorted body image. Some folks are saying it was a flat out insulting and horrible photoshop job.
In their defense, the brand did include actual images of Bey in the gown (showing off the finished product). And the controversial image could simply be a cartoonish sketch (and sketches almost always show stick thin bodies in order to emphazize the clothes).
The company responded to the "controversy" with a statement saying, 'Our purpose has always been to portray Beyoncé as the strong and beautiful woman she is. It has been a good working process and a close cooperation. Both parties are happy with the images.'
Beyonce's camp has not spoken out about the controversy (after the pic surfaced on Tuesday) and we don't think they will. It seems pretty clear that this was a caricature/artists' rendering of the garment itself that happens to be for Beyonce.
Much ado about nothing?
