Examining Red Dress Photos

Apparently, not everyone agrees that the red dress photos from the Russian website are indeed the same woman used by Kimmer as her "After" picture.


We offer the following:

Example 1 - another picture of the same woman from the Russian website. Compare side by side facial close ups with the Kimmer red dress photo. Note the shape of the nose. The "wrinkle" at the edge of the lips on the left hand side. The same "pouches" under the eyes and the same eyebrows. The same oddly shaped part in the hair.


We increased the size of the Kimmer red dress photo and found evidence that the photograph was altered before being used by Kimmer. When you alter a photograph with a graphic enhancing program, unless the user is very, very good, there are always visible signs left that indicate a graphic change was made to the image. In this case, the eye color of the Kimmer red dress photo was changed to brown. Note the pixelated area around the eyes on the Kimmer red dress photo (image 2) as opposed to the enlargement of a natural - unretouched photo (image 1). Also please note the shape of the nose is identical in both images.



We know that many will not agree and continue to search for another "red dress woman", but we here at Kimkins Dangers are satisfied that these are indeed the same woman.

I'm glad to see at least a few people agree with me!

Remember Heidi (or someone) knows how to Photoshop. Also, different lighting and angles will make your face look different.

Thank YOU for being in agreement as well. We are positive these are of the same woman and we are taking steps to acquire the necessary verification from the Russian website.

I'm holding out for that exact photo before alteration. If Heidi used it, it's got to be out there. I still think Heidi's "after" is thinner in her face - unless it was taken at an earlier or later date. Whatever, it AIN'T Heidi/Kimmer!

oooh I hope you're right! What a scoop! Darn it, I wanted to be the one to find it first! But ya know what? The Kimpire Is Burning! This is a day, a week, to CELEBRATE!

wooHOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Go KDangers!!!!

After seeing these photos, I do think you found the right woman. I would not be surprised if she is on several sites and has the "kimmer" photo somewhere else. I wasn't at first convinced, but these closeups confirm it in my eyes.

I'm anxious to find out what the model says.

I saw that weird triangular eye thing at LCF and thought, "That's why that pic always subconsciously bugged me."

But I'm still not thoroughly convinced. Why? Every other pic that's been found is the EXACT SAME PIC--pose and face and etc.

This one, the pose is not exact. So, the actual pic has not been found, ergo, why should we be assured the woman has been found?

I'm not 100% with you on this one.

But yes, the eyes are mighty weird.

I have to disagree on the pixillation. The photo on the right is a lower resolution and that's why it's pixillating. If it was a photoshop job, why are the lips, ears and hair pixillated too? Nope, different pics.

Why does Kimmer/Heidi/whoever she is right click and copy every other pic but this one she supposedly takes the time to photoshop?

Nope, not convinced.

I would recommend you guys alter photo 2 (kimmer's version) and add in the blue eyes of the other picture as well as the same lip color. That would make things a bit more clear and easy to assess. I'd do it for you if I weren't at work right now.

I do think the facial structure, hair line, and overall wrinkles/lines match up really well. I'll be on the lookout for updates.

I'm not so sure that's the same woman. They have different eye colors and several of the facial features look different enough for me that I don't think it's her.

I too would have to see the identical shot to be convinced.

KD--I agree with you-it is the same exact dress too--even though the color is off---look at the gathering on the abdomen area, it is a design on the dress not just the way it is draped---same in both pics.

still need to find the exact pic to be on the safe side

kayjaydee sez "Why does Kimmer/Heidi/whoever she is right click and copy every other pic but this one she supposedly takes the time to photoshop?"

Because she'd always said she had brown hair (well, wig) and brown eyes on LCF. She needed a highly marketable photo that also matched her previously stated hair and eye colors.

And it was hardly the only photo that was doctored up for either a before or after pic. Yes, MOST pictures she obviously stole directly from the various Russian Brides websites. I don't doubt for a minute that this is another one and I don't doubt it is originally of the same model now shown in the other poses with the same red dress, same necklace, hairstyle, arms, hands and fingers and facial features, particularly the slightly offset point of the nose, but the photo has has been significantly doctored.
