The Real Madonna

I am a big Madonna fan I think she is amazing.  She is now in her fifties  but she still rocks it big time… I have just come across unretouched pictures of her from the Louis Vuitton campaign first of all I think she looks fine unretouched and secondly I don’t have a problem with retouching. If you are selling a product whether its make up or a car the best version of this needs to be projected to the public, especially in fashion you are selling a fantasy an ideal.

I think there is a fine line with retouching over retouching just starts to look wrong but done well its fab. For an icon like Madonna image is everything so she wants to present to the world the best version of her the version that will sell Vuitton! I had my wedding pictures retouched and I have to say they look amazing!

My Wedding Pic retouched

Vanity? Not for me I hate my picture being taken and I hate the results but I have 200 photographs that I love. I think it helped that I had noted fashion photographer Peter Breen taking them who managed to find my angle see above!

      I quite like the fact they have over done it for this campaign pic what I tend to hate is over retouched ‘natural’ beauty when the skin has no texture in Madges case I think that works for her and it isn’t a close up beauty shot! Good retouching is such an art! V
