We all know images of our favorite celebrities are manipulated beyond belief, (which always makes seeing the unretouched version pretty satisfying). So, behold: Britney Spears before the Candie's Photoshoppers made her look absolutely perfect.
According to the Daily Mail, Brit released the images herself in an "extraordinary move to highlight the pressure exerted on women to look perfect." While that sounds like something Brit's BS Alerts might refute if it weren't so nice-sounding, the splits still have that effect.
Britney's legs, waist and butt are all rendered slimmer—even though she's looking pretty good in the before shots. Surprising? Not so much, but nice to know anyway!
