Some very courageous female stars follow in the footsteps of Brad Pitt by agreeing to appear on the cover of a major magazine sans Photoshop, with no retouching whatsoever.
Better yet, the stars went unvarnished without any makeup.
The April 2009 issue of Elle France features the natural beauty of Monica Bellucci, Sophie Marceau, Eva Herzigova, Inès de la Fressange, Anne Parillaud, Karin Viard, Charlotte Rampling, and Chiara Mastroianni.
The ladies were beautifully captured by Peter Lindbergh.
I am very happy to see this and I really hope this promotion of real beauty will become a recurring trend in fashion publications.
