Ann Taylor Appears To Airbrush Models AND Clothes (PHOTOS, POLL)

Update 5/26: Ann Taylor apologized to Jezebel via Twitter, writing, "We want to support and celebrate the natural beauty of women, and we apologize if in the process of retouching that was lost."


Oh, Ann Taylor. You were just starting to get popular again, with your dresses selling out in stores and going for hundreds of dollars on eBay. But, like many brands on the verge of being welcomed to the in-crowd, it looks like you were peer pressured into airbrushing. Just a little trim here, and some smoothing there, and you've turned your modish models into emaciated extraterrestrials. And its not just the models who look unrealistically wrinkle-free: even the clothes are looking like they've had work done.

Readers--take a look at these images and tell us what you think: has Ann Taylor airbrushed its models? Or are these pictures all-natural?

Thanks to Jezebel for the tip.
