Numero Magazine Removes Karlie Kloss’s Ribs

Posted: 28 Sep 2012 10:36 AM PDT


Magazines tend to follow the ‘Make the Celebs Skinnier’ 99% of the time, but there are definitely a few exceptions – and here’s one: Karlie Kloss’s protruding ribs were removed in Numero Magazine in order to avoid ‘thinspiration’ labels – the full story from Daily Mail:

She is no stranger to people critiquing her body. So when Karlie Kloss saw that Japanese magazine Numéro had airbrushed out her prominent ribs in a photoshoot, she was probably quite relieved.

The original photo, shot by Greg Kadel and released by his studio, showed the 20-year-old model leaning back with her hands behind her head. But the image that made its way onto the pages of the magazine’s October issue, Kloss’s ribs, sternum and prominent collar bones had been smoothed over.

Some have criticised the move, saying that that the images of Karlie show a slender model with normal ribs for a slim person leaning backwards – and suggest that the airbrushing by Número was over-zealous.

But to the editors of Numéro magazine, what may have seemed heavy-handed to some was likely a pre-emptive move to avoid the sort of furore that arose last time Chicago-born Kloss appeared naked in a magazine.

In a shoot for Vogue Italia with Steven Meisel last December, images showing Kloss’s protruding hip bones and minuscule waist sparked heated debate after they appeared on pro-anorexia websites.

The photos were replicated across the globe on myriad so-called Thinspiration sites, websites where vulnerable women and men post images and words that they believe will help them to lose weight to be more like their icons. Eating disorder associations spoke out to say that Kloss’s slight frame could have a negative effect on impressionable girls.
