Do horrors ever cease? In today’s edition of The New York Post, supermodel Doutzen Kroes discusses a Photoshop disaster she recently noticed in an editorial she did for the June issue of Vogue China. As you can see above, someone at the magazine must have an amputee fetish, because they took one of her legs clean off:
“I just saw this. Maybe it’s two legs together? Maybe it’s the pose? I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ I think Photoshopping is OK until something like that happens. You don’t want to lose one of your limbs.”
I’m not sure I agree that all Photoshopping short of amputation is okay—I’m also somewhat unnerved by the overly contoured, plastic-like sheen they gave the rest of her body—but how the heck do fancy fashion magazines keep on making this kind of glaring error? The creepiest thing about it might not even be the absence of her right leg, but the fact that they managed to Photoshop in a shadow for the left leg where the right one used to be. This makes it seem less like pure incompetence and more like a deliberate de-legging, no? If I were Doutzen Kroes, I’d watch my back the next time I visit the Vogue China offices, because it’s clear at least one person there thinks she’d be much prettier with that pesky leg gone.
Upon further investigation, it appears the whole editorial is a Photoshop disaster, albeit to a lesser extent (whatever that means nowadays). It’s here if you are morbidly curious. Stay leggy, Doutzen!
