It’s common knowledge that magazines love to airbrush and touch up a model’s flaws, no matter how much more gorgeous they are than us mere mortals. However, Photoshop can sometimes be a weapon of mass destruction when not used in limits. Have a look at some beautiful celebs that have been a victim of some over-zealous touching-up.
Beyoncé in an Emporio Armani Ad
This perfume ad got us wondering how the beauty managed to throw her arms back while holding a perfume bottle in her hands in front of her. Unless you have an extra set of hands, we don’t think that’s possible no matter how flexible you are!
Unless there was something seriously super-natural going on in the midst of this shoot, we’re having a tough time understanding how the reflection in the mirror doesn’t match the rest of the picture.
Doutzen Kroes in Vogue China
In their over-enthusiastic attempt to touch-up the models body, Vogue China managed to chop one of her legs off entirely!
In an ad that appeared on the homepage of their website, American Apparel photoshoppers forgot to attach the rest of the horse’s body to it’s head. There’s no other explanation why you can’t see it behind the petite model.
Kate Winslet in GQ
An international issue of GQ forgot to update the reflection in the mirror when they decided to replace Kate Winslet’s gorgeous curves for a much sleeker body.
Chitrangada Singh in Vogue
Chitrangada’s usually flawless, dusky skin is one of her greatest features so you can imagine our surprise when we saw this white-washed version of her on the cover of Vogue last year. Either they went too far in the skin-lightening department, or they found a model with an uncanny resemblance to the dusky beauty.
Kim Kardashian on Complex.com
Kim K may love her curves but I guess this website may have had a problem with them when they accidentally posted this picture of her. The right image is a smoothened, slimmed and more toned version of the original image.
Kristen Stewert on Glamour Magazine
I’m pretty sure losing her lower left arm isn’t exactly what K-Stew signed up for when she agreed to be Glamour magazine’s cover girl.
Sarah Jessica Parker on Harper’s Bazaar China
This magazine went a bit overboard with the airbrushing. Poor SJP is almost unrecognizable, her cheeks as well as the rest of her face are mildly distorted, making her look downright fierce and honestly a bit scary.
