Perfume、2年ぶりの新AL10月発売決定&チョコラBBのCM出演

先月、ドイツ・イギリス・フランスの3ヵ国で開催された自身初のヨーロッパツアー「Perfume WORLD TOUR 2nd」を大盛況のうちに終幕させたPerfume。驚愕のテクノロジーを使った最先端のライブパフォーマンスで国内外の話題をさらった彼女たちが、今回新たな2つのビッグニュースを発表した。

1つ目は、ユニバーサルミュージック移籍後初となる待望のオリジナル・アルバム『LEVEL3』の発売日が10月2日(水)に決定したということ。アルバムとしては、『JPN』(2011年11月リリース)以来、約2年ぶりの作品となる。
そして2つ目は、8月6日(火)より、新イメージキャラクターとして出演するエーザイ「チョコラBBスパークリング」新TV-CMのオンエアがスタートしたこと。『LEVEL3』に収録される新曲「Party Maker」がそのCMソングとして流れているので注目してほしい。同曲は、Perfume史上最強のダンスミュージックと呼ぶべき軽やかで美しいアッパーチューンに仕上がっており、一聴すると思わず身体が揺れていってしまいそうな1曲だ。同日より着うた(R)が配信スタートしているので、アルバム発売に先駆けてチェックしてみては? なお、『LEVEL3』には、大ヒットシングル 「Spring of Life」、「Spending all my time」、「未来のミュージアム」、「Magic of Love」の4曲に加え、新曲も多数収録される予定だ。

12月には、『LEVEL3』を引っさげた、東京・大阪で約16万人を動員する初の2大ドームライブの開催が決まっているPerfume。大規模なライブとしては「JPN」を引っさげて敢行した全国アリーナツアー「Perfume 3rd Tour『JPN』」以来となる。昨年のアジアツアー、海外フェスやヨーロッパツアーといった積極的な海外での活動によって海外の熱狂的なファンが増え続けているため、台湾や香港、韓国を含め世界各国からのファンが来日していた前回の「JPN」ツアー以上に、今回の2大ドームライブには国内外からの大きな注目と期待が寄せられることは間違いないだろう。

Perfume、2年ぶりの新AL10月発売決定&チョコラBBのCM出演

In this ad for French clothing brand Camaïeu, a model wears a cozy sweatshirt and pajama shorts without incident. (Although, what's with the blurring near her belly button?). Scroll lower and you'll notice something a wee bit weird. Photoshop fail alert! What happened to her feet?

Victoria's Secret appears to have used its airbrushing powers to give a model a lift -- literally. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the Add 2 Cups Multi-Way Bra, part of the Bombshell collection, model Candice Swanepoel leans towards the camera and shows off her enhanced cleavage. But one side of her chest looks remarkably bigger than the other, as if the "Add 2 Cups" applied to one breast only.

This American Apparel ad is a study in Photoshop gone wrong. The image, ostensibly advertising the retailer's line of lace clothes, features a blonde girl cradling a horse's head that seems to be leading to nowhere.

Some Photoshop fails are subjective. Did the editor really chop off the model's arm? Or is that pose actually physically possible? But sometimes, the photo gods send us an airbrush misstep too obvious to be debated. This latest newsletter from Alloy is definitely a case of the latter.

Our friends over at PsDisasters tipped us off to the slightly off-kilter shot in the Gucci Resort 2013 ads. The fail in question has to do with poor Joan Smalls' leg-to-hip ratio. Her torso is twisted, but there's still something a little ... off about the way her legs are positioned. Does anyone else notice that her crotch doesn't match up to her body at all? That oversized snakeskin tote isn't hiding anything either.

This Kohl's ad take waist-whittling to a whole new, er, planet. Our friends at Photoshop Disasters spotted this flop -- and boy were they right. The shape these frocks seem designed to flatter definitely doesn't look human. The woman in the white dress has some sort of inverted triangle alien body -- or is that a Ken doll-like physique?

Our friends at PsDisasters tipped us off to this one, and it's definitely one for the books. To sell their "Jackie Cardigan" on their website, J. Crew featured a model in their typical prep-meets-hip gear. It only takes about half a second to notice that chunks of the model's inner thighs have been erased. Could this be a case of Photoshop streamlining gone wrong? Or is there some photo editor out there who thinks that the ideal pair of jeans creates the illusion of cratered body parts?

Jezebel pointed out that in the advertisements for Aguilera's Royal Desire fragrance, something appears a bit off. Aguilera's wrist bends weirdly, her knee has a seemingly misplaced indentation and her face and limbs look incredibly ... chiseled.

The 38-year-old graced the latest ad campaign for Rimmel looking a little ... well, flat. Kate's wearing matte foundation in the ad, so it's understandable that she would look somewhat less shiny. But, aside from her signature wide-set eyes and a small semblance of her cheekbones, we can't seem to find the lively Kate we know and love (even without a stitch of makeup).

When Kristen Stewart (awkwardly) posed on the cover of Glamour's November issue, she too fell victim to the photoshop madness. The potentially cute photo is ruined by a strange choice to cut off half of her arm (which somehow disappears into her leg).

Not only did Ann Taylor take a few inches off of a model's waist, the brand's website accidentally revealed the "before" shot, thanks to a tech glitch. The "before" is on the left, and Ann's "improved" version is on the right.

In this jarring Ann Taylor LOFT photo of Linen Twill Shorts, the model appears to have a thumb emerge directly out of her arm, above the wrist.

In this printed ad from an Italian haircare line, the female model's legs seem to have gone missing... or perhaps the male model's biceps are so big they conceal them?

(PSD photo)

Model Angela Linvdall posed for the March cover of Vogue Mexico looking every beauty but also, very elongated. Her neck and jawline seemed to have been smoothed and stretched out or she's a modern-day Stretch Armstrong.

Bloomingdales turned a perfectly innocent model into a mutant, giving her the pointiest, most elongated elbow we've ever seen.

The leg bone is not connected to the hip bone. Period. And for more, check out a dozen or so airbrushed Angel fails.

By now, we're used to seeing models' bodies whittled down -- but how about reverse retouching? Like, making someone appear heavier than she is? That's what happened with Kamilla Wladyka who was Photoshopped to look healthier. For the cover of Healthy magazine.

And On And On. This model loves Suave's Mango Mandarin body wash so much that she hasn't realized she's an amputee.

We don't think the lady model's legs make any sense in Dolce & Gabbana's ad for light blue, although, somehow, 47 percent of you thought everything looked just peachy.

We still don't know what this was about but it seems more relevant than ever. Did Wills dye his hair just for the Hello cover shoot? Or was someone playing around with the color and contrast in everyone's favorite retouching program?

Here's an interesting spin: model Irina Shayk claims GQ Spain Photoshopped the underwear right off of her and that she never posed in the buff. She's taking the Spanish glossy to court over the pics.

"New Zealand's Next Top Model" came under fire for having a 16-year-old contestant pose topless, with only mud smeared across her naked breasts and then posted an unedited picture from the shoot online. The solution? A spray of Photoshopped steam covering up the girl's chest.

While Anne Hathaway looked stunning on British GQ's February 2010 issue, something's not quite right with her ultra-smooth armpit...

Another Ann Taylor photoshop fail...this time, they took out their airbrushing anger by amputating this poor model's arm!

We're not sure why someone would change Hilary Rhoda's already perfect and sky-high cheekbones to begin with-- but that didn't stop Numero Tokyo from engaging in this photoshop fail. The model's razor-sharp cheekbones were given a little too much tapering...yikes!

Some were shocked at Kate Middleton's frail frame in her Alexander McQueen gown on her wedding day. But a Grazia magazine retoucher decided to take it up a notch by airbrushing her already tiny waist, to look just like a life-size Barbie's instead. It seems that Grazia has tried to trick us into thinking the Duchess has the worlds smallest waist.

It's hard to even tell that this Maybelline ad features the one-and-only Christy Turlington, who is so airbrushed that she's basically unrecognizable. While the supermodel has always been known for her flawless complexion, her skin is so overly retouched that it bares more resemblance to a 3D animation than Christy herself.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this caption identified the makeup brand incorrectly.

Louis Vuitton's fall 2010 campaign featuring models Christy Turlington, Karen Elson and Natalia Vodianova is so aesthetically pleasing to look at, that it's hard to notice this photoshop mystery. But if you look closely in the mirror, you'll see a random reflexion in the mirror that doesn't match up with the actual scene going on.

Grace are as pretty as can be in this September 2011 Vogue spread. But unfortunately, Lila Grace and her poor fingers are the victims in this photoshop disaster.

Kim Kardashian has always embraced her curvy figure--but the original and untouched photo that Complex.com accidentally posted of a thinner Kim says otherwise.
