Jessica Alba has an incredible post-baby body, but even so, her physique didn't make the cut for Campari who featured the actress in their 2009 calendar.
As the images above show, in additional to regular color and contrast adjustments, Jessica Alba was photoshopped to look even slimmer for the shoot. The airbrushing is particularly in the white one-piece shorts outfit in her waist and hip area. Note that the photos aren't the exact before and afters, but it's clear they digitally removed a few inches from her thighs.
She looks pretty darn good as is, but this just goes to show that in Hollywood, good is still not great, and only excellent makes you an A-lister.
The last four images are behind-the-scenes shots, so you can see Jessica without photoshopping, and the rest of the gallery shows the officially retouched Jessica Alba Campari calendar pictures.
