We all know that Instagram is far from the truth, after all, who is going to bombard their followers with pictures of them in bed sans makeup and donning fat pants when they could share photos of them drinking with their friends and living the perfect life.
We all know that social media is a bit of a lie, and as long as we remember that we are in the clear.
Models post perfect pictures of themselves with flawless skin, skinny legs and perfectly even teeth and even though we know they are edited, it is hard to figure out just how much is real.
Jazz Egger, a London based model decided she wanted to expose the truth of the modeling industry, editing her photos and captioning them with the hashtag ‘truthbehindthisshot’.
From the flawless skin, skinny legs and perfectly even teeth – we now have an idea of the truth behind the images.
photoshop lvl 7000 / sorry @robertsakowski for destroying your wonderful work xx (#truthbehindthisshot my agency told me on that day that my hips were way too wide and that I needed to lose weight in order to have a chance at London Fashion Week. I already was underweight so I decided to not lose any weight. I still got confirmed for LFW.)
Thanks for having me ❤️ #LondonFashionWeek #LFWSS17 #fashionscout #runlabel #namedmodels (#truthbehindthisshot I didn’t sleep much the night before bc fashionweek is pure madness. + I didn’t eat/drink salt, sugar, fat and alcohol for months to prevent my skin from breaking out. Didn’t work. Makeup artists covered it up.)
#notgonnalie At this point the only reason I’m still on instagram is bc casting directors started asking how many followers I have so they can decide whether they consider me or nah. Idk how to feel about this but hey this is me dropping a selfie to stay in the game. (Also, I edited my instagram captions. Check out #truthbehindthisshot)
Nothing like putting social media to good use to remind us how important it is not to be tricked by online models.
