That up there is Kate Winslet, Oscar-winning actress, positive body image lobbyist, wife of a man with an unconventional surname and mother of two (soon to be three). We included the above photo so you can see what a pretty lady Winslet is, with all her wavy blonde hair and glowing skin. Oh, it’s also to remind you what she looks like today. Literally today.
Because Winslet’s Vogue cover also came out today, and the woman looking back at us who is supposedly Kate Winslet doesn’t much resemble her:
That would be the forthcoming November 2013 issue of American Vogue and up there, windswept amid all the cover lines is a woman we’re to believe is Kate Winslet.
Alas, the lady pictured looks much more like a Frankenstein’s Monster pastiche of several Vogue-ready celebrity blondes, namely Kate Hudson, Candice Swanepoel and Uma Thurman with a dash of Winslet thrown in. There’s someone else we can’t quite place–any thoughts?
Still, passing resemblance or no, we think it’s a bit of a step up from Claire Danes‘ recent starring turn on VogueÂ and its own accompanying Photoshop hackjob.
