The 43 worst celebrity Photoshop fails of all time

Magazines have always been in the business of crafting celebrity appearances. Even before Photoshop existed in 1988, the magazine industry has collaborated with celebrities to carefully present images that shape our consciousness.

Digital editing takes that to another degree. Now, any celebrity can change their appearance in a photo with the swipe of a finger.

For many people, it’s a serious problem. One major criticism lobbed at celebrities and magazines is that they promote unrealistic body standards— especially for women.

Celebrities often post Photoshopped selfies. And, of course, altered images are common in advertising as well. Sometimes, though, the manipulation is obvious. And that leads fans, critics, and even celebrities themselves to sometimes react harshly.

Here are 43 celebrity Photoshops that turned into disasters.

Like many things Lena Dunham does, it was controversial.

Other photos from the shoot were also heavily Photoshopped, but Dunham was OK with it. She told Slate that she saw the Photo shoot as a fantasy, not something that was supposed to emulate real life.

“Vogue isn’t the place that we go to look at realistic women,” she said. “Vogue is the place that we go to look at beautiful clothes and fancy places and escapism and so I feel like if the story reflects me and I happen to be wearing a beautiful Prada dress and surrounded by beautiful men and dogs, what’s the problem?”

Zendaya was surprised to see her body look different in a 2015 shoot for Modeliste magazine.

“Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19-year-old hips and torso quite manipulated,” she wrote on Instagram. “These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it.”

The magazine blamed a third party editor and posted the original photo.

The magazine’s editor blamed “an independent editing company,” pulled the issue, and restored the original photo for publication.

“Modeliste advocates positive body image, self love and the empowerment of women,” Amy McCabe, the Editor in Chief, wrote in an open letter. “We are all beautiful and unique in our own way, and it is through these differences that make us who we are as individuals.”

Fans called out this Kylie Jenner selfie for Photoshop.

The image seems to have a glaring issue.

The wall in the background appears to curve right around where her stomach bends in.

For what it’s worth, Jenner took to Snapchat not long after to explain that it wasn’t Photoshop, it’s simply the way her curtain looks.

In 2016, Meghan Trainor posted a side-by-side image of what she looks like in real life and how she was made to appear in her “Me Too” music video.

But when Kerr posted the same photo in November, fans noticed a huge difference.

“I just felt weary,” Washington wrote on Instagram. “It felt strange to look at a picture of myself that is so different from what I look like when I look in the mirror. It’s an unfortunate feeling.”

Adweek’s editorial director at the time said the magazine made “minimal adjustments.”

“Kerry Washington is a class act. We are honored to have her grace our pages,” James Cooper said in a statement. “To clarify, we made minimal adjustments, solely for the cover’s design needs. We meant no disrespect, quite the opposite. We are glad she is enthusiastic about the piece and appreciate her honest comments.”

Kardashian West was made to look like she has smoother, lighter skin, and a thinner appearance in the retouched version.

She was fine with it.

“So what: I have a little cellulite,” she wrote on her website. “What curvy girl doesn’t!?”

It’s far from the only time Kim has been in a photoshop fail.

Magazine Photoshops disproportionately modify the appearance of women, but men aren’t exempt.

“Little did I know I have 22-inch guns and a disappearing birthmark on my right arm,” Roddick wrote on his blog post.

“We all look ridiculous. Way too much photoshop.” Benson wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “We all have flaws. No one looks like this. It’s not attractive.”

Bellisario agreed with Benson’s criticism.

“I couldn’t agree more,” she wrote on Instagram. “Very cool concept as always. But aren’t we attractive enough women as we are? Why can’t we just look like us?”

In another “Pretty Little Liars” ad, one actress seemed to be missing a leg.

A receding hairline is always hard to deal with, and William’s pose only emphasized it, so the magazine may have filled it in for that reason. He also usually has blonde-ish hair, but it was turned brown for the cover.

Kristen Stewart appeared on the cover of Glamour’s November 2011 issue.

The magazine distorted her figure.

“Do we retouch? Yes!”

The magazine digitally shed pounds off of Clarkson to make her look “her personal best,” according to then-editor-in-chief Lucy Danziger.

“Do we retouch? Yes! Did we alter her appearance? Only to make her look her personal best,” Danziger said. “Did we publish an act of fiction? No. Not unless you think all photos are that.”

In the interview the magazine published, Clarkson said she was happy with her weight.

“My happy weight changes … Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more. I’ll be different sizes all the time,” Clarkson said. “When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’ I’ve never felt uncomfortable on the red carpet or anything.”

Nyong’o posted unedited images on Instagram that revealed the magazine took off a chunk of her hair and smoothed out the rest.

The actress wasn’t happy.

“I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like,” Nyong’o wrote on Instagram. “Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.”

The magazine later apologized for publishing a modified image.

Representatives for the Evening Standard later said they edited out her hair “for layout purposes” but apologized for the whole thing.

“Plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange,” the magazine said in a statement.

So that’s how Oprah is so productive. Vanity Fair acknowledged the error and fixed the photo online.

In another photo published in the issue, it looks like Reese Witherspoon has three legs, but the magazine says it just appears that way because of a shadow from the draping of her dress. Decide for yourself.

The advertisement’s editors drastically distorted her proportions. After it was released, Hamilton stopped working with the brand.

“They fired me because they said I was overweight and I couldn’t fit in their clothes anymore,” Hamilton told the New York Daily News.

A representative for Ralph Lauren said the image was published by mistake.

“The image in question was mistakenly released and used in a department store in Japan and was not the approved image which ran in the US,” the company said. “We take full responsibility.”

The entire world is wobbly.

As many people noticed, a parked car behind her looks like it’s been squished into a thin triangular shape and the ground seems to bend behind her, as if there’s a seam in the concrete running across the parking lot. The shadows behind her legs also look artificial.

Though the photo has more than 1.6 million likes, it has no comments. The Daily Mail reported that Kardashian West disabled comments after she was called out for Photoshopping.

In a post on her website, Kardashian West said the photo was cropped from an image a fan made with a mirror effect, which is why there seems to be a seam on the image’s right side.

When the magazine honored her at their “Woman of the Year” event, she used her platform at the event to criticize the modification of women’s bodies in media.

“It is fair to write about the change in your magazines. But what I want to see is the change on your covers,” Gaga said. “When the covers change, that’s when culture changes.”

Talking to Hello! magazine, Winslet said her legs were totally changed.

“The retouching is excessive. I do not look like that and more importantly, I don’t desire to look like that,” Winslet said. “I actually have a Polaroid that the photographer gave me on the day of the shoot … I can tell you they’ve reduced the size of my legs by about a third. For my money, it looks pretty good the way it was taken.”

GQ UK’s editor at the time, Dylan Jones, said the Photoshop was fine.

“We do that for everyone, whether they are a size six or a size 12,” he told the BBC. “It hasn’t a lot to do with body size. Practically every photo you see in a magazine will have been digitally altered in this way.”
