It appears that Disney Princesses, the pinnacle of feminine grace and beauty, are not as perfect as they are made out to be; American illustrator Jen Lewis is here to expose the truth. On a Jezebel-like crusade to unveil the massive Photoshopping scandals that are currently rocking the fashion industry, Jen Lewis uncovers the shocking retouching that was applied to the animated films.

From getting rid of The Little Mermaid's unibrow, eye bags and snaggletooth to hiding Jasmine's conjoined head and removing her sixth finger, the physical problems that plague these Disney Princesses are much worse than anyone could have imagined. Beautiful Decay notes that Jen Lewis found a "witty way to get back at Disney for promoting princesses over real people and perpetuating gender stereotypes towards people at a very young and impressionable age."
