Zooey Deschanel Deserves So Much Better Than This Wildly Photoshopped InStyle Cover

Zooey Deschanel Deserves So Much More Than Her Wildly Photoshopped InStyle CoverAnother day, another celebrity getting photoshopped into unrecognizable oblivion. Today’s victim: Zooey Deschanel on the cover of InStyle Magazine. Or at least, I think it is Zooey Deschanel, or perhaps it is a rejected wax figure of her from Madame Tussaud’s museum. I am not actually sure, but what I do know is that this is not what Zooey Deschanel looks like.

The New Girl star and adorkable millennial style icon covers the August 2014 issue of InStyle, which would be lovely and all given that she is a stunning lady with a  seriously snazzy fashion sense. Instead, we simply see a Zooey shell with skin so airbrushed, there are more realistic Barbies out there. Ironically, the cover story is labeled, “Zooey! On Being Normal, Label Snobs & World Domination.” She’s so normal, in fact, that her pores have simply ran away from her face in order to chase their eccentric dreams. Here is a side by side of what the InStyle cover looks like versus how Zooey looked at a recent event:

And we are not the only ones who noticed–plenty of her fans are complaining, too.



We know photoshop can be used for good purposes, but this is not one of them. This is just another silly cover that transforms a lovely, stunning star into a super smooth doll that veers deep down into the uncanny valley.

      The first thing I always notice about Zooey is her eyeliner/mascara, so I would totally need a second look at this cover to see that it was really her.

      Her eyes are so close together. Who signed off on this?
