Impossible Beauty Standards: Jessica Alba's Airbrushed Campari Ads

If there's one thing I've always said about Jessica Alba, it's that she's fat and ugly. So it's a good thing that Campari made sure to have her photos retouched for their ad campaign instead of using her au natural.

I mean, without the retouching, her clavicle doesn't have a hope in hell of killing a man with a single shrug. Not to mention her knee looking all round and shit. What has she got on that thing -- muscle? tendons? Whatever it is, thank Maude it's gone.

And I've no idea what she was thinking having wrinkles in her clothes like that.
