Photoshop Of Horrors: Megan Fox Is A Sexy, Sexy Alien

Plastic surgeries, constant ogling, making out with Dominic Monaghan…hasn’t Megan Fox’s face been through enough? Not in Giorgio Armani’s opinion. Fox is nearly unrecognizable in the Italian fashion house’s latest youth serum ad, with her skin smoothed out to a cold, stoney finish, and her already well-engineered nose reduced to two little holes in her face. There’s something strange about her ears as well; have they been trimmed down, or are they just in soft focus? The retouch-er also seems to have actually made her face wider, that is, unless she’s had one of those Bristol Palin chin-narrowing surgeries since the ad was shot. All in all, I think this ad crosses the line from the strange-hot look Megan usually has, into somewhat alien territory.

I know heavy Photoshopping is standard in beauty ads, but what’s the point of paying all that money to get a celebrity to model your face products if people can’t even tell who that celebrity is? On the other hand, Megan Fox is a notorious Franken-babe; her regular face looks somewhat Photoshopped already. Here’s another photo for comparison:

What say you, critical readers of the Internet?

    I remember about five years ago I looking at a makeup ad and trying to work out if it was a real person, and decided yes, it must, because CGI wasn’t quite that good, yet, but it took me a moment.

    In the ad photo, she looks like Nicole Scherzinger.

    I feel like this happens all the time, I’ll be looking through a lady-mag and see some ad for hair dye or whatever, and I’ll search the fine print to see if it says “Elizabeth Hurley is wearing Blonde #9″ or something for a clue to who the celeb is.

    Have they lowered her ears? My mother is an artist, and the first thing she taught me about drawing faces is the top of the ears should be in line with the eyes/eyebrows. Note the other photos and where her ears are in relation to her eyebrows. You’ll notice in the “alien” ad photo, the top of her ears are aligned with the bridge of her nose.
