Bravo Peter Lindbergh for producing another spread of unretouched images, this time for Harper's Bazaar. Lindbergh shot supermodels including Cindy Crawford, Amber Valletta, and Shalom Harlow with no makeup and minimal retouching for the September issue. Sure, it's the group of people in the world who need the least retouching to begin with. But it's the most natural thing we've seen in a fashion magazine since Lindbergh's shots of Monica Bellucci, Sophie Marceau, and Eva Herzigova for the covers of French Elle earlier this year, who were also unretouched and wearing no makeup. Lindbergh told the Times in May, “Heartless retouching should not be the chosen tool to represent women in the beginning of this century.” Bravo Harper's Bazaar for running the story. We hope to see more magazines give their retouchers a few days off. But will any be bold enough to produce a spread of models or actresses or — perish the thought — normal people wearing something other than tank tops or oversize white shirts? Like swimwear? See Lindbergh's new Bazaar shoot in the slideshow.
