So I'm pretty sure there's not another thread like this (that I have access to and could find), and it's something I find pretty interesting to see. This thread is basically to compare what Instagram "models" or "public figures" look like on their accounts (with their beloved photoshop apps) versus what they look like in reality when somebody else is taking the photo. And you can also post about some of the extensive work these insta models have had done too if you want since that is also pretty crazy to see.

So to start off, here is Meredith Mickelson on her Instagram versus on her first runway show just last week.

Reality:

And she also posted a shot from this show on her Instagram, so just to highlight her love for photoshop some more, here's that comparison

Holy shit she is so puffy. :wtf:

Elsa Hosk belongs in this thread. I still haven't figured out how she makes her ig pics look 20x better than candids. Would like to know her trade secrets (on my phone so.. can't add pics sry)

I saw all those Meredith photos on Twitter and you beat me to posting them here:lol: Angles, filters, and a fuuuck ton of Facetune (her jaw is SO liquefied in every picture she posts!) really go miiles for ig models. D&G is has been a mess lately though so I guess she fits in perfectly.

Madison Beer, Sahar Luna and Kelsey '@fatherkels' Cal-something on Instagram would fall under this category too I think, I've seen some pages "expose" them for having nose jobs and potential other work done and their photos are very obviously over-edited like Meredith's. My friends and I were talking about this the other day, I can try to go back and find the before and after photos... and of course a thousand other examples from more ig models:smash:

I was shocked when I saw the photos and pulled up her instagram to see that the comparison photos weren't even from awhile ago, one was only 2 weeks ago. So it's not like she gained a lot of weight, she really does just edit her photos THAT much. Figured it'd be a funny thread because there's so many Instagram "models", odds are more than half of them edit their photos to the extreme.

Yeah her jaw is just a bunch of fat, unlike the sharp one she has in her Instagram photos. And I agree with the Elsa hosk statement, she makes herself look so thin on her Instagram. I do think she is actually pretty though. She is somewhat skinny, but definitely not as thin as she portrays herself to be

These are some photos all from around the same time (May/June) IMG_0161.jpgIMG_0163.JPG IMG_0162.JPGIMG_0164.JPG

The first two are from her Instagram, while the third is from VS I believe, and the last is a candid. As you can tell, she looks much thinner in the ones she posted, and a lot less toned in the ones she did not.

Another girl that comes to mind is Alexis Ren. Like her use of angles, filters and facetune is on a whole other level, in my opinion.

Her face looks SO different in recent candids - different even from her natural-looking Brandy catalogue shoots from a couple years ago which I assume wouldn't be heavily photoshopped like her instagram posts, or old campaigns for cheap online clothes sites. I wonder if it's bad aging or some surgeries or both.

I have a feeling she's for sure had some work done on her face. She looks like she has the same plastic surgeon as Bella Hadid.

ALSO, There is this one bikini model who got BASHED over & over by the Daily Mail for how drastic her IG posts were vs what she actually looks like.

Yikes. Guess being "thick" isn't actually that sexy and glamorous as everybody wants us to think... who would've thought :whistling:

Kelsey Calemine (fatherkels on Instagram)

Before and after

From her insta:


From her tagged pics:




Sahar Luna (sahar.luna on instagram)

Before and after

On insta (Kelsey is on the right)


In real life- she's on the far left (Kelsey is far right)




Both these girls are like 15-17 with large followings. A lot of my friends follow them and tons of random accounts constantly call them "goals." They have actual fans who worship them and make fanpages about them. Okk.

Lovely natural waist in that pink bikini. :hahano:

I mean seriously, if you're going to photoshop at least TRY to make it look natural!

I'm so confused. Did they actually get lip filters and whatever done at that age?? Or it's facetune? Hoping it's the latter.... Like who tf would be okay with their 16yo child getting filters. That's fucked up.
