Sports Illustrated model Hannah Davis doesn’t see airbrushing photoshoots as a big deal.
The stunning model is the envy of women all over the world, and regularly shows off her flawless figure in bikini photoshoots. All may not be as perfect as it seems though, and Hannah admits that even her pictures are not immune from retouching.
However the 25-year-old isn’t bothered in the slightest, especially as her face is never tampered with.
“It’s not a big deal; maybe they just wanted it a little bit more airbrushed-looking, and that’s their style,” she shrugged to Health magazine.
“I’ve never had anyone alter my face. They’ve only sort of smoothed things out. I think you look like a Barbie doll when they erase the wrinkles under your eyes. I don’t mind if there’s a crease when I smile. They’re just creases. They’re fine - leave ’em!”
Hannah also touched upon the fashion industry’s insistence on super skinny models. Luckily though bikini models don’t have to be super thin, with Hannah revealing she wouldn’t conform even if she had to. She enjoys her curves, and the freedom to eat what she wants.
“You get a little backlash once in a while - maybe they want you to slim down for something. But now it’s like, ‘Sorry, I don’t care. If you don’t want to work with me, that’s OK with me,’” she stated.
“It’s not a cocky thing; I’m just more concerned with my quality of life. I don’t want to go to birthday parties and not eat cake, and I think that has made me in better shape in some ways.”
Her refreshingly honest attitude also extends to how she preps for photoshoots, and Hannah admits it can sometimes be a miserable experience.
“I warn everyone, ‘Prepare for me to write you a random b**chy text because I’m hungry’,” she laughed. “I do eat the whole time, but I work out a lot, usually two workouts a day for two or three days before.”
