Above is a photo of Kerry Washington last month. It’s a recent enough picture than one can only assume she still has the same face. However, this afternoon, Lucky Magazine Editor-In-Chief Eva Chen tweeted an image that is allegedly of Kerry, but looks like…well, not like her. But here, you decide:

This is Lucky‘s December 2013/January 2014 cover featuring Kerry Washington, but oh my goodness that does not look anything like her. Does it? Am I being crazy or does this seriously look nothing like that woman whose image I posted at the top of this page?

Apparently, we are not the only people who see this as being completely different than Washington’s actual appearance, and considering how universally her image is adored, I can’t imagine her fans won’t find this somewhat offensive. And honestly, aside from the photoshop issue, I’m not sure I like how they styled her regardless; frosted pink lipstick and windswept ”meh” hair? Not a great look, and certainly not one that showcases Washington’s unbelievable style and beauty.

Now, Lucky already has a fairly bad track history with photoshopping celebrities into oblivion. In the past, the magazine butchered Britney Spears‘ image and made some sort of Sim version of Christina Aguilera. To be fair, tons of major magazines and websites do this with their images, but I’m just not quite sure I understand why they would even bother getting these stars for their covers if they would prefer not to have that person be remotely recognizable.

      They need to fire their photoshop person. She looks like one of the lizard people from V in that cover shot. How is that even possible, Kerry is gorgeous.

      They always mess it up! It’s not limited to covers, either. Look through their fashion spreads- I dare you to spot a single knee under a skirt. Every single knee gets smoothed out and it’s SO creepy.

      And she’s a December/January cover girl? That doesn’t sound good for Lucky . . . like they’re not doing 12 issues per year anymore?

      I agree…this is awful…She is beautiful and she didn’t need any “improvements or be photoshopped”……BOYCOTT Lucky Magazine!
