Britney Spears London, Aug 14 (ANI): A recent British poll suggests that 90 percent of girls are aware that the majority of celebrity images are airbrushed, and not an accurate representation of the celebrities’ appearances.

A cosmetic surgery website, Good Surgeon Guide, conducted a poll of 1,078 teenage girls to discover how they feel about airbrushing and other digital manipulation of photos in fashion magazines.

The poll showed that nine out of 10 girls polled already know that most celebrity photographs are neither realistic nor achievable, reports Live Science.

For example, 71 percent respondents said that images of Britney Spears were regularly airbrushed, and 69 percent believed that photos of Kim Kardashian were modified and unrealistic.

Others asked about in the poll included singer Fergie (48 percent of teens thought her photo was airbrushed); Jessica Simpson (49 percent); and Sarah Jessica Parker (44 percent). (ANI)
