Oh, Dear: How Badly Did Gucci Bungle This Joan Smalls Ad?

Joan Smalls may be in possession of an incredibly enviable leg-length to hip-width ratio, but that didn’t stop Gucci from doing some incredibly ill-advised post-production work on her stems in this otherwise gorgeous ad.

We’ve seen some pretty bad crotch-shop jobs before (this J.Crew model comes to mind) and there’s certainly been no shortage of missing legs (and arms), but this is the first time we’ve seen a model’s hips actively moved several inches to the side and then her leg whittled down to something the circumference of her already slender arms.

Call us crazy, but perhaps flamingos are the new sheep (which, you may remember, were once upon a time the new lambs)?
