    Much like the infamous incident when Kristen Stewart's arm went walkabout from a cover of Glamour magazine, Priyanka Chopra's armpits fell victim to an overzealous photo editor.

    What do you think? Should photo editing to erase "flaws" be stopped, or should we all just take celeb photos with a pinch of salt and view them more as artworks that don't necessarily depict its subject exactly? Do you think beauty standards would be more realistic if we didn't always see the smooth skinned, tiny waisted versions of our fave celebs? Let me know in the comments!
