Unretouched pics bad for beauty business?

Allegedly unretouched photos of Cindy Crawford and Beyonce that leaked last week revealed that even seemingly perfect super models and celebrities have flaws.

While many have deemed the images as empowering, some experts say it might be bad business for the beauty industry. FOX411 spoke to celebs and fashion industry insiders on Thursday night at the 2015 Sherri Hill Fashion Show about the Photoshop controversy.

"Knowing that is Cindy Crawford as an icon and a fashion superstar people should be able to see how progressive the industry has become and nothing overly photoshopped," celebrity photographer Andrew Werner told FOX411. "We want to see real beauty."

Pop culture expert Rob Shuter said showing a photo before Photoshop could be bad business for beauty brands.

“I think it may be bad business for the beauty companies that sell us millions and millions of dollars of lotions and creams, but it’s a good business for women because we all look like that," Shuter explained. "We would all die to look that good!"

FOX News contributor and former 2013 Miss New York USA Joanne Nosuchinsky explained the models are simply pawns in the fashion industry game.

"It's a business and these magazines want to make money," Nosuchinsky said. "Lately, they have been trying to sell an idea but usually, you have to remember, they are selling a product so models are really just pawns in that whole game. So, we have to remember the real reason for the photos and may not emulate that exactly."

"Real Housewives of New York's" Countess LuAnn deLesseps explained that seeing an un-airbrushed photo of a beautiful celebrity is refreshing.

"It's good that women see the image of Cindy Crawford and see that she's not as perfect as people make her out to be."
