Pictures have leaked from the Madonna Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign, and it looks like there was much photoshopping done on the legendary pop icon.
Although readjusting images for public fashion ads are not unusual, it is still surprising that even the hot and powerful Madonna herself had to go through that much touching up. This just goes to show that not everyone is perfect, even the pop queen star Madonna herself.
Implications - As far as I'm concerned the ability for Madonna to show this kind of raw look into her often-imperfect world shows just how comfortable she is with herself and her immense talent.
