Late Soviet era girl next door photo book 'Sverstnitsa' (Peer Girls)

"Сейчас, спустя 22–25 лет, рубрика смотрится уже по–другому – как слепок эпохи, и можно даже проследить общее движение нравов от консервативного идеала "русской красавицы" кондово–советского периода журнала – к раскованности и менее стандартным типажам в купальниках. Хотя, надо отметить, что редактора очень осторожно и редко отклонялись от европейского типажа в пользу азиатского, но и такое немного было."

[A series of girl next door 'pin–up images' demonstrating the liberalisation of sexual attitudes in late Soviet era.]

Oprah Winfrey's infamous body transplant

"Lately, websites such as Jezebel have become vigilant on reporting the cover misdeeds of magazines such as Redbook, Glamour and Vogue. It was Jezebel who published a 'before' and 'after' shot of Faith Hill from the July 2007 cover of Redbook that showed how a prominent clavicle or a freckled forearm are forbidden and quickly airbrushed to perfection.
Anyway, over the weekend, I was browsing the Museum of Hoaxes photo gallery and came across the worst case of photoshopping ever. The Aug. 26, 1989, cover of TV Guide, left, didn't just elongate Oprah's neck or add a waist and sexy biceps. Hell, no! They took a picture of the TV titan's head and transposed it onto the body of Ann–Margaret. (The shot of the iconic redhead had been taken in 1979.) Of course, it was clear that Oprah would not have posed on a pile of money. But it wasn't until the designer of the purple dress spoke up that TV Guide admitted to playing Freaky Friday with the photos."
