I'd like to show you the face concerned but I can't because its photo [right] is heavily masked - by a studied expression, fashion (it may not seem like that to you now, but in 20 years' time it will), make-up, hair grooming/colouring products, and a thick veil of Photoshop which might as well be a burqa.
Touching up photos is not new, of course. Here are some examples, chosen entirely at random:

@crproudman and I have three connections in common on LinkedIn. One of them is an Occupy London veteran. And here's a related tip: if responses to your LinkedIn photo are causing you stress, draw your own picture. My LinkedIn image is of an Occupy protester with his V for Victory mask at the Finsbury Square camp. Spyro, I hear you're doing OK. Ring your mum.
Some have suggested to @crproudman that she should get on her pole. That is unfair. The ID pictures on my twitter accounts are drawings of a pole dancer. And not just any pole dancer, but Ayumi LaNoire, pole performer (and winner of some serious awards for same), fire-eater, model, actress (she has a beautiful low-pitched voice, which you can't see in her pictures).
Unfortunately for the peacock, who says that @crproudman's photo is the best he has ever seen on LinkedIn, Ayumi doesn't feel the need to be on that distressing site.
