Left: the unretouched original. Right: the final Photoshopped image. Note that this is the same swimsuit as seen in the 10th slide, except that here the color has been altered. Kroes' expression lines have also been smoothed (1), along with the skin around her armpit (2) and the veins in crook of her arm (3).

In August, Jezebel got a hold of some photos from a Victoria’s Secret photo shoot with supermodel Doutzen Kroes. What’s interesting about these particular photos is that Victoria’s Secret had accidentally published the photos in their raw format, without retouching them in Photoshop, as is common in the industry when they’re released to the public. So when the photos were actually published in the brand’s catalog, Jezebel was able to do some before and after photos to show just what kinds of photo manipulation is done to beautify the already beautiful models.
