Photoshop Fail: Vogue China Amputates Doutzen Kroes’ Leg

We’ve seen some pretty horrendous Photoshop blunders in our day, but even among those, this one is bad.

In a swimwear spread in the June issue of Vogue China, Doutzen Kroes‘ right leg mysteriously vanished. Unlike many Photoshop errors that are slightly more subtle, you don’t even have to look hard to find this one — it’s painfully obvious. Doutzen told the New York Post of the spread:

“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.”

Sadly, Doutzen isn’t the first model to fall victim to Photoshop amputation. Amber Valletta got her leg hacked off by American Vogue in December 2011. And while these two photos were pretty obviously careless mistakes, magazines sometimes use Photoshop in a more (dare we say it?) malicious manner. Remember when Elle Brazil digitally disrobed Coco Rocha and she called them out on it? We’re glad these girls are speaking up!

See for yourself the affliction that is sweeping fashion magazines:
