Britney Spears highlights airbushing in latest ad campaign

In her latest ad campaign for Candies, Britney Spears requested that the original photos be displayed alongside the airbrushed ones.

I think this is awesome, and a great way for Britney to use her power as a pop icon. While the ideal thing would be to have advertising that didn’t distort women’s bodies in impossible ways, this does send a message to viewers about the process behind these images.
