Did Taylor Swift Photoshop Her Bikini Instagram With Haim?
Lucky Magazine is one of our favorite sources for great shopping tips. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story from our friends at Lucky!
In one of Taylor Swift's most recent Instagram posts, the 25-year-old singer, along with sister-trio BFFs Alana, 23, Este, 28, and Dani Haim, 25, pose on the deck of a boat while on vacation in Hawaii. While at first glance the most newsworthy aspect of the image is the fact that Swift's bellybutton is on full display, a closer look reveals the telltale warping of the guardrail behind them.
Swift isn't the first celebrity to maybe-retouch her Instagrams. Beyoncé has come under fire several times for allegedly tweaking her images before posting—particularly her bikini shots. The proliferation of photo-editing apps like FaceTune have made it extra easy for celebs, bloggers, and everyday users alike to smooth and reshape their selfies before sharing them with the world—and watchdog accounts like WePhotoshoppedWhat have popped up accordingly.
Having 19.9 million followers would put pressure on the best of us to put our most #flawless self forward, but, in this instance, Lucky says it best by quoting Norah Ephron's most famous advice: "Oh, how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don't take it off until you're thirty-four."
No FaceTuning needed.
