Try not to scream at this horrible Cosmo photoshop fuck-up starring the Riverdale girls
Lili and Camila look like crazed mermaids
Right here, I could start talking about unrealistic beauty standards and the evil of rampant photoshop. But I won't, because who doesn't look a little FaceTune? What I can tell you, though, is sometimes things are taken too far, and sometimes it's to hilarious effect.
Riverdale stars Lili Reinheart and Camila Mendez starred in a cover photoshoot for Cosmopolitan magazine. By every standard, they looked like normal girls. Incredibly hot girls, but normal none the less.
But then! Cosmopolitan Philippines took the photos for their social media accounts (pretty standard with international editions) and completely edited them to shit. Their waists were snatched beyond recognition, and then their hips and busts were stretched way out. And the girls were pissed.
Here's Lili looking regular-shmegular :
And here's Lili retouched:
Camila Mendez was also a victim of a retouched waist, and it's honestly looks even crazier than Lili's:
This is what Camila looked like in the U.S. Cosmopolitan cover:
And this is her mermaid body:
Lili took to social media to express her feelings on the photoshopping, writing on her Insta story: "It's sad that you felt our bodies needed to be slimmed down, but Camila and I are fucking beautiful as is and you can't 'fix us.'"
Mendez, too, had a few choice words about the retouching scandal: "Lili and I feel disrespected and disturbed by the sight of our photoshopped bodies," she said. "We want their readers to know that those bodies are not ours; they have been distorted from their natural beauty."
