This Woman Had Her Body Photoshopped In 18 Countries To Examine Global Beauty Standards

"Perceptions of perfection across borders."

Posted on

Inspired by artist Esther Honig and using this original picture...

...a U.K.-based online doctor service asked graphic designers from around the world to photoshop the model's form by making her, in their opinion, more attractive to other citizens of each of their countries.

"Widely held perceptions of beauty and perfection can have a deep and lasting cultural impact on both women and men," the service told BuzzFeed. "The goal of this project is to better understand potentially unrealistic standards of beauty and to see how such pressures vary around the world."

The results are very interesting:

Argentina

Colombia

Netherlands

Philippines

Romania

South Africa

United Kingdom

Ukraine

Venezuela

And very gaping thighs from the USA.
