Doesn't matter what he wears or doesn't wear ;)

More to your comments on Just Tom Welling, did you see the before and after touch up pics of Tom at TWU? (wasn't sure if I could post the link to another site there so I brought it here)

I did see those! I'm terrible on TWU, I only lurk. LJ is really the only place I post. I find those before and after comparisons so fascinating. They never do much to Tom (and why would they?), but what they do to the girls in particular is really unnecessary. Here's another one of Tom, and a few more. At least with Erica all they fixed were her shoes (which were a little too big for her feet), but check out what they did to KK and AM (click on the thumbnails for bigger):

I find the before/after comparisons fascinating too!! Thanks for posting these, I had not seen them before...just the Tom ones. I remember reading a comment made by one of the SV make up artists saying that they don't have to do much to Tom seems to be the same case for his photos!
I am not sure why they feel the need for some of the adjustments particularly with the girls???

It's really interesting, and sometimes perplexing, to see what they change. If I were in this business I would definitely have a complex about my looks! Even the most beautiful, perfect women are found lacking. It's crazy. In the vast majority of cases I prefer the unretouched versions.

Oh, I like seeing these commparisons. It really makes me shake my head when they feel they have to manip Allison Mack because there are a few wrinkles at the front of her skirt. Good lord. Whenever I look at that picture though I wonder at the person who dresssed her in a polka dot top with fishnet stockings and leopard spot shoes - very distracting!

You have a point about AM's outfit! :) And they didn't just remove the wrinkles (which they did on other pics of Aaron Ashmore and Michael Rosenbaum), they gave her a completely unwarranted tummy tuck! The one that truly boggles is taking a slice out of KK, as if she's not tiny enough already.
