Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the latest cover model for Glamour UK’s June edition, and she opened up about what it’s really like to be a social media starlet. While we just see total perfection and a bar set so high most IRL can’t possibly live up to (another topic she also worries about), Rosie explains that it takes 100+ shots, tons of editing, and filtering to post that one perfectly curated moment that just happens to look natural.

Irony, as you’re scrolling through her absolute perfection images for Glamour UK, wondering how much of this is airbrushed.

But the model worries about this new generation that’s growing up on social media, and how they are being influenced to believe that this is the norm…the standard. And really, it’s not the standard at all, but the latest version of the magazine fakeout that’s been quietly tormenting women from almost every age ever since…the 90’s? I’m not sure when airbrushing every single imperfection and not just waist size became the norm. The airbrushed perfection that nobody can attain, not even the model herself. Still, it can’t be denied just how amazing Rosie looks whether it’s in her paparazzi street style game or slightly retouched Glamour editorial.
