Impossibly Beautiful

Forget Impossibly Beautiful; how about Alien Chic?

Now that's a fuckneck!

This image (by way of our friends at Photoshop Disasters) can currently be found at the Nordstrom's website, selling the pictured Alice + Olivia Beaded Collar Shift Dress. The best part about the use of this image, aside from its brazen "Fuck you" to all notions of female self-esteem, is that it is accompanied by a (less prominent) back-of-garment image, in which they didn't bother to recreate the Neck of Improbable Longness:

—which suggests that perhaps her neck is actually robotic, and conveys her head toward the heavens when she pushes the "go-go-gadget neck" button on her right shoulder.

For a moment, just consider how truly fucked up our ideas of What Women Look Like are that thousands of women will look at that image and not notice something profoundly wrong with it, but sigh wistfully and wish for a slender, elegant neck like that.
