Jennifer Lawrence has just done a layout for Dior handbags and, upon seeing the photos, said that they were Photoshopped and didn't look like her. Here's the photos:
There are a number of researchers trying to discover what people find attractive. I've been involved in some of these studies, with somewhat embarrassing results. Here are three actual responses to my input: "On average, people chose the more feminine face 60% of the time. You chose the more feminine 100% of the time." "On average, people chose the lighter face 55% of the time. You chose the lighter face 100% of the time." "On average, people chose the redder image 55% of the time. You chose the redder image 100% of the time."
Studying my own preferences, I have created a digital "pretty filter." With it, I am able to alter images in one step to what I find more attractive, making several hundred small changes at a time. Here is a published photo of Lawrence and my altered image. I find the second to be more attractive, but I don't think I would recognize it as being her.
