People don't slather on bronzer an inch thick all the time.
Having been on several photoshoots, behind the scenes, I can tell you, yeah. They do. Every model has make up applied with an air brush on every bit of exposed skin. To my experience, though, the reason why these
images look the way they do is post production, through the magic with photoshop and some cruddy filters. I'd be interested to see some pictures that weren't post-edited.
True enough, but if they wanted a person with that skin tone to go with those outfits, surely they could have found an actual black model for the shoot. From what I hear not-Caucasian models have a hard enough time finding work.
I mean, look at the girl - to my eye she's not just tan, she's practically painted mahogany.
Given that these sorts of photoshoots don't pay the model or behind the scenes crew, it's not a financial loss for whoever might have taken this model's place. I agree they should have used someone of the right skin colour.
Caelie, she's 16, might want to use a link instead.
