The Gothamist spotted this huge bit of digital manipulation, which no doubt helped to fat shame women even more than it already does.
It shows Mad Men bombshell Christina Hendricks at Sunday's Golden Globes.
On the right, the original. On the left, as published.
But in this big fat lie of a photo -- Gothamist has a screen grab of the original -- she's distorted, ostensibly to make the writer's point that Hendricks made a fashion faux pas:
... pretty Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano’s exploding ruffle dress. (As one stylist said, 'You don’t put a big girl in a big dress.')"
Now, if this was performed by some celebrity trash tab or bitchy gossip site, it would be one thing. But no. It was in the New York Times.
All the news re-sized to print.
UPPITY WOMAN DATE: One of my Tweeps suggested this may have been the result of some clumsy page lay-out. Maybe. A very interesting one, no?
