Our favorite tabloid, The Daily Mail, has an article today noting that “Victoria Beckham is super slender in her first lingerie shoot since the birth of baby Harper” and asking “How does she do it?” Uh…might I suggest she does it via a little program called Photoshop?
I mean, credit where credit is due: Beckham looks great. The 37-year-old just had a baby last July, and I’m sure it took some hard work (and many astrological consultations) to get her body back in pre-baby shape.
But nobody’s arms and legs are this smooth and perfectly contoured. How does she do it? Airbrushing. Good lighting. Flattering angles. Not that there’s necessarily anything wrong with that—she’s a model; of course folks want her to look as good as she can. But let’s just be honest about what we’re dealing with, no?
For the record, the Daily Mail article does not actually devote one word to ‘how she does it;’ no mention of her actual workout routine, diet, health philosophy, anything. The article’s main focus is on Beckham’s business endeavors, modeling career and possible Spice Girls reunion. But of course, the Mail takes the opportunity to focus on how thin Beckham looks, because teasing people into articles with unhealthy monitoring of a celeb’s every pound gained or lost is pretty much the paper’s bread and butter.
