I've heard of photo editors airbrushing out navels on swimsuit models (see the case of the vanishing belly button
from 1964), but I hadn't heard of navels being inserted into photos. But that appears to be the case with Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova.
Fashion watchers have recently noticed
that Kurkova doesn't appear to have a full belly button. Instead she only has a "smooth dimple". Wikipedia
speculates that the lack of a belly button is due to an abdominal operation in infancy. Nevertheless, in some photos she sports a full belly button, which means that photo editors must be creating one for her.
Or maybe it's all just an effect of different lighting conditions, and the debate is an excuse to examine photos of her. (via collegeotr.com
