Was Allure Too Kind To Britney?

We all know that the Britney we see in the September issue of Allure magazine is very different from what the pop star actually looks like these days. Here we have some of the outtakes which showcase the magic of photoshop and airbrushing. We think it's interesting that the magazine chose to portray Britney nicely considering she never even showed up to be interviewed for the article. Tell us, do you think Allure was too kind to Britney?

Those legs are a dead giveaway. We have all seen Britney's chunky legs and they are not in that photo.

dh931, I was thinking the same thing!! I said on another picture that she looked like a really hot jewish girl. I was thinking Blossom all the way.

If they hadn't edited the pictures (like they do for EVERYONE) then I'd guess there would be other celebrities that might not pose for them in the future, for fear of the same fate. Either way, Brit looks great, all things considered. I've had five kids...but even after my first two...NO ONE could have photoshopped my half nude body to look anywhere near that good!! I'd rather look at photoshopped pix of a hot bod, than a not so great bod...but that's just me.

Does anyone remember that show from the 80's..."Blossom"? She kinda looks like that girl....I think her name was Mayim Bialik???

I totally agree with chellybean. Strangely, "vindictive" was the exact word that came to my mind when I read the bit about that.

Um, yeah, ditto to everything Greggie said. hahaha. Just about everyone nowadays gets photoshopped but they overdid it on these? It doesn't even look like her! Have you seen her BELIEVE ad? Doesnt look at all like Britner, It looks like they meshed a pic of Britney and Jennifer Aniston together.... here's the link

if you click the link it says "Allure's September cover shoot, at Pier 59 Studios West, was Spears's first since filing for divorce from Kevin Federline in November 2006. Here, makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen smooths a shimmery moisturizer on Spears's back." so does this mean this was in 2006? pre shaving of the head?

Notice that each of those poses makes her look thinner. Any one would look thinner striking those particular poses (try it -- you'll see I'm right). That, with some post-shoot airbrushing and voila! She looks like the old Brit... Ah, the magic of artistic license!

its publicity for the magazine if they still run the pics without the article, they probaly got more press BECAUSE she bailed on the interview.

I love that they photoshopped it. Made me realize how much I miss the cleaned up Britney. But in a way, I couldn't really tell because it looked like her just much thinner

Yep, she wishes she looked like that again! What's with the butt cleavage? That's not cute!

From what they say, she chose to be somewhat naked in this shoot. It figures. I'm pulling for Britney to get her act together mainly for the sake of her cute little boys....i could care less about any of her music. As for this shoot...all magazines photoshop. They think its their duty to falsely portray these stars so that we have a unreal sense of beauty to live up to. I'm fine with seeing it, because i know they dont really look like that.

they are a classy magazine and they way they handled the situation with Britney proves that..

Maybe they actually screwed her over with all the airbrushing, because that's all people are talking about.

I think they were, although I can totally understand it. Taking the high road and being professional certainly reflects better than resorting to petty, catty remarks. It's just one of those things where you just roll your eyes and work around it.

they were nice to her , it is right that the magazines job to be nice with the stars but also the stars job is to be nice with the magazine coz everyone get paid and therefore they are all supposed to do thier jobs .

I'm not familiar with this magazine but if this is the kind of cover shot they would have had if she'd done the interview then it would have been a bit strange for them to suddenly put an un-retouched pic on the cover. They would have been straying into tabloid land and I'd imagine they don't want that image for their magazine. It's no secret that this kind of picture is photoshopped - even if she looked pristine I'm sure they'd have still altered something. We're hip to these images being manipulated regardless of what the person looks like 'really'. I think it just makes it all the more interestig considering every single other picture of her around these days is a pap shot.

I completely agree with hills (somewhere upfront :)) She doesn't deserve this good treatment having in mind how she behaves and what she did of her career, her family, friends and her own apperance. I never listened to her music, but I thought she's a sweet all american girl. How wrong was I....
