These days, we're quick to forget what a woman really looks like. When every picture you see is airbrushed, cropped, re-sized and beautified, it’s easy to get a very unnatural idea of the female face and body in your imagination. That’s why we were so happy to see these pictures of Catherine McNeil as part of her diary posts for V. She’s clearly without any makeup at all (which is completely different from the well-blended, professional "no makeup look" of a Calvin Klein runway), and possibly just out of the shower. Obviously Catherine was born with supermodel genes, but we still like the messy photos - especially since maintaining an image of uninterrupted beauty is a huge part of her job. The girl in these pictures is a far cry from the eye-lined, lip-stained sex bomb usually seen in magazines. We're just wondering if anyone else out there would ever allow no-makeup photos (and online) of themselves.
