Picture enhancing is big business in this modern world where practically everyone has access to an Instagram account. Photoshop is no longer confined to the realms of glossy magazines and fashion editorials, for it is now more common on social media, where your old high school friend uses it to whiten her selfie-perfect smile.
But it’s not just your friends on Instagram who are abusing photo editing software, as once again, Vanity Fair have been caught out after publishing a huge blunder on their latest front cover.
Can you see it? Let’s take a closer look:
The cover, which was shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz was supposed to be celebrating the 24th annual ‘Hollywood Issue’ of the magazine, and featured stars such as Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Oprah Winfrey and Gal Gadot – all of whom were being praised for a monumental 12 months in Hollywood.
But the unexpected star of the shoot was the extra leg that suddenly turned Reese Witherspoon into a tripod! Fortunately, the Walk The Line star saw the funny side, and tweeted in response, saying: ‘Well…I guess everybody knows now…I have 3 legs. I hope you can still accept me for who I am.’
Manipulating an image requires an intricate eye – something that not everyone is blessed with. Here are 17 other celebrities who may have all been gifted good looks and talent, but one thing they lack is the ability to correctly edit an image…
1. She may ‘Run The World’ but she can’t get away with this
Beyonce is certainly ‘***Flawless’, so fans were confused when they spotted that the 36-year-old ‘Diva’ had heavily edited a candid holiday picture of herself. Either that or she owns some peculiarly shaped wine glasses. Oh, and that left arm looks a little suspicious too. But, the star wasn’t ‘Sorry’ for her mistake, as she has been caught red-handed a few times…
2. She really is a Bad Gal
Rihanna made jaws drop when she posted this exotic snap on her Instagram page. But, sadly her photo editing skills didn’t “work work work work work” as it appears that the Bajan beauty forgot to properly manipulate her thumb. But the 29-year-old singer was Unapologetic for her blunder.
3. Certainly a bit wavy
Amanda Holden may be Britain’s Got Talent‘s best judge, but she is certainly not the best user of Photoshop. From the wobbly waves to the dipped decking, we would hit the red button on this snap!
4. Cover girl
Jennifer Lawrence may have been the highest-paid actress in the world in 2015 and 2016, but her acting certainly isn’t good enough to make us believe that this picture was genuine.
5. BUSTED Kris Jenner!
The 62-year-old matriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner empire can easily make her family’s army of fans buy into anything she is selling. However, nobody was buying into this awful FaceTune fail, featuring celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsey.
6. Keeping it real, Kim
Like mother like daughter! The 37-year-old reality star was (literally) exposed when the before and after pictures of this shoot were published online.
7. The model mystery
Miranda Kerr may be Victoria’s Secret’s favorite model, but the Australian born beauty is far from an Angel. When the 34-year-old, ex-wife of Orlando Bloom, posted this behind-the-scenes snap from the 2012 show, fans were quick to notice that her waist looked dramatically different to the original image.
8. Guilty as Gomez
Gomez’s latest hit, ‘Bad Liar’, may have been inspired by this unfortunate incident in which the 25-year-old star was questioned over the warped door frame in the background of her selfie. Maybe she isn’t as ‘Perfect’ as we once thought…
9. We can’t keep up with Kim Kardashian’s Photoshop fails
Rumors regarding Kim Kardashian’s notorious posterior have plagued the star since she rose to fame in 2007. Has she had butt implants? Does she wear padding on her derriere? We will probably never know the truth. Kim insists it’s real, but can you really trust a star who brazenly edits her images?
Check out the doorframe and tiles in this picture – since when did Kim live in a circus funhouse?!
10. Spot the difference
Jessica Alba is the girl we aspire to be, not only because she kicks ass as Susan Storm in the Fantastic Four films, but because she always seems so real and down to Earth. Or at least she did until this Photoshop scandal hit the headlines…
11. Queen of the Photoshop
Beyonce really is a ‘Beautiful Liar’ when it comes to her Instagram timeline. This time the ‘Naughty Girl’ was exposed when fans spotted the stairs between the singer’s legs exhibiting some peculiar characteristics.
12. Miranda makes a blunder
Miranda Kerr clearly didn’t learn from her mistake the first time around. Again the brunette beauty has slimmed down her waist, and she might have gotten away with it if it weren’t for the peculiarly shaped bookcase in the background.
13. Lying like Lohan
Lindsay Lohan has had her fair share of problems, but this is one of the worst examples of her bad behavior. That warped door frame is unforgivable!
14. Kylie got kaught!
Kylie Jenner has unashamedly stolen her sister’s ‘Queen of the Selfie’ crown. But, it would appear that with it came a penchant for airbrushing. Just like her big sister, Kylie made the mistake of not checking the background of her picture – those curtains certainly look strange!
15. Touch-up Taylor
Taylor swiftly deleted this picture of her posing on a boat with the Haim sisters, after fans noticed that the bars on the boat were oddly bent. Luckily she managed to ‘Shake It Off’…
16. Mind the gap!
Beyonce is back! This time the star was accused of re-shaping her, usually curvy legs while she was playing golf.
17. What happened to John Mayer’s face?
John Mayer is still ‘Waiting on the World to Change’, but in the meantime, he is spending his time taking selfies – and editing them atrociously with the help of FaceTune.
18. This one is Gaga!
She may have a good ‘Poker Face’ but she couldn’t conceal this near ‘Perfect Illusion’. The warped mirror and distorted floor appear to hint that the eccentric singer wasn’t ‘Born This Way’. She certainly deserves an ‘Applause’ for her effort, though!
19. It’s Britney b*tch
Oops, she did it again! Britney was slammed by her fans for her ‘Toxic’ Photoshop effort, which are quite frankly ‘Criminal’.
