Celebrities seem to have it all: designer wardrobes, private chefs, top beauty therapists and stylists.

That doesn't mean they're immune to the social media pressures of looking "perfect".

Khloe Kardashian, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and the Real Housewives of Melbourne
Celebrities are not immune to body-image pressure and the temptation of digital tweaking.

Khloé Kardashian

Khloé has been called out numerous times for allegedly editing her snaps, but these pictures intrigued us.

Fans pointed out how long the reality star's arms look in the third picture.

"Damn what is going on," a person wrote.

"You have fallen prey to a visual culture that undermines women and girls at every turn in its attempts to shape us literally and figuratively into taking up as little space as possible. #befilterfree," an Instagram follower wrote in the comments.

"I'm sorry I can't get over how edited this picture looks," another wrote.


Kim Kardashian

She's no stranger to being called out by fans for allegedly taking liberty with the Photoshopping brush,

Fans called out Kim Kardashian in a snap where she is seen modelling a black sequinned Balenciaga gown with shiny leggings.

"You know it’s ok to have armpits, right?" one commentator wrote on her post.

Another added: "Why don't you have armpits like us commoners?"

Kendall Jenner

Kendall's Skims Valentines Day lingerie shoot had fans calling her body 'unattainable' on Twitter.

"How am I supposed to exist when this is what she looks like?!" one wrote.

"The smoothing around the bikini line is ridiculous," another person said.

"Nobody’s (bikini line) looks like that.

"Gals have lines, razor bumps, discolouration ... nobody is completely smooth down there."

When The Real Housewives of Melbourne star Lydia Schiavello announced she was leaving the show earlier this year, she shared a throwback photo of the Season Two gals.

Fans called out Lydia for allegedly Photoshopping the image of her, Chyka Keebaugh and Pettifleur Berenger.

When a follower questioned the image, Lydia responded saying: "It’s an old photo Season 2 no Photoshop, I wouldn’t do that after being fatshamed myself x".

However Lydia took down the post when Chyka's daughter Chessie called it out, showing it side-by-side with an original from the same photo shoot and posting: "This is so high school and actively malicious, I'm truly in shock."


While this may have happened back in 2015, it only came to light this year when TikTok user Amelia Goldie claimed Madge had allegedly Photoshopped her head onto Amelia's body to promote her album Rebel Heart on her social media accounts.

"When Madonna photoshops her face onto your body (never thought that’d be a sentence I’d say)," Amelia wrote on her TikTok video that has been watched 2.2 million times.

"I look Kewl.........❤️#rebelheart" Madonna wrote on her Instagram post sharing the image. When followers saw the post was still up despite the deception being revealed, they called her out: "This isn’t you. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!!"

Others pointed out that, even though the image was shared on Madonna's verified account, it was probably created as fan art.

"Lol. You can see the fan credit there," one said.

Britney Spears

While we're all for Britney reclaiming her body and her identity on social media after her father's conservatorship was lifted, it seems fans aren't buying her excuses for discrepancies in the photos she posted.

Brit was on holiday when she posted a series of nude selfies, with fans claiming she had Photoshopped flowers onto the snap to protect her modesty.

However, it was the curve in the bathtub top and tiles that really had people questioning if the photos were filtered.

"The bathtub 😬" one follower commented.

"Are we all just ignoring the blatant photoshopping?" another added.

"Britney you need to work on your photoshop skills yikes. Looking glam tho," wrote a third.

But Brit had anticipated the push back and already had her tongue-in-cheek reply in the caption.

"Pssss no photo edits … the tub curves 😂😂😬😬 !!!" she wrote.
