A display of her flabby belly on tour made headlines last month, but it seems Britney Spears was taking no chances with her latest ad campaign.
The singer apparently called in the airbrush experts after posing for a new shoot for American label Candie’s.
Her usually muscular thighs look impossibly lean and every bump and blemish seems to have been glossed right over.

The 27-year-old stars in a series of skimpy outfits in the candy themed shoot, including a pink cut-out bathing suit, black string bikini and a white frilly skirt.
She has described the brand’s spring collection as ‘very hot’ and ‘very sexy’.
Her incredibly thin and flawless physique is a rather stark contrast to the fuller figure she put on show during her Circus tour in Newark, New Jersey, in March.

As she made an entrance on a swing, she seemed unconcerned about the danger of being seen from an unflattering angle.
And her slouched pose didn’t do her once famously toned stomach any favours.
Now, however, it seems Britney has other matters on her mind on tour, including a rumoured new romance.
She recently enjoyed a wild fling with a young back-up dancer, according to U.S. reports.
Her behaviour has been decidedly tame ever since her father Jamie Spears was named as her conservator, but it seems she took advantage of his absence while he was on a recent business trip in Los Angeles.
‘Literally as soon as her dad left, she started getting cozy with a dancer named Gio,’ a source told New York’s Gatecrasher column.
‘It wasn’t serious. They had a few romantic interludes, and she bought him a few things – a pair of shoes and some clothes – even though she’s on an allowance.’
‘They’ve slowed down since Jamie got back in the picture,’ said the insider. ‘It’s basically over now.’
