Normally, it’s not my style to get all hot and bothered over the issue of airbrushing. But this new Gap ad featuring 61-year-old Mia Farrow has done the trick. Featured not only on the Gap Web site, but also in the current Vanity Fair and today’s New York Times, it looks like Mia Farrow circa 1968, except that her hair is longer and she looks a bit tired. For some reason, her famous name is not in the Times ad, but when I read it in Vanity Fair, I did a triple take.
