From Ralph Lauren editing a model’s appearance to make her look emaciated to Victoria’s Secret dramatically enlarging Angel Candice Swanepoel’s shoulders, we rounded up 16 of the biggest Photoshop disasters of all time.
This is Selena Gomez. She is a singer, actor, producer, and the face of Coach.
In this January 2018 Coach ad, Gomez looked unrecognizable, likely thanks to a botched Photoshop job.
Commenters sounded off in the comments of Coach’s post.
“This looks nothing like her so of course it’s photoshop. You can’t seriously think it looks like her ?!” one fan asked. “What have you done to her face? She didn’t need any Photoshop,” someone else commented.
Designer fashion store Net-a-Porter uploaded a photo that was marked up with editing notes.
In March 2017, Net-a-Porter uploaded a photo to its website that was covered in notes that instructed the editor to “please, slim” the model. The photo was only up for a few hours before being taken down, according to the Daily Mail. The same photo was eventually re-uploaded without being retouched.
Victoria’s Secret Angels Martha Hunt and Stella Maxwell posed together in an ad for the lingerie brand in August 2016.
But there was a subtle Photoshop fail in the picture. Actress Sasha Pieterse (left) appeared to only have one leg.
Not only was Pieterse’s left leg missing, but also her right leg seemed to be layered upon itself.
All sorts of things went wrong in this Target swimsuit ad from 2014.
This photo made waves when it first went viral in 2014.
There are obvious, pixelated glitches around the model’s right hand, left armpit, and left forearm.
Her left hand also appears disproportionate to her wrist and her thighs seem manipulated to create a large gap between them.
In another botched Photoshop job, Target deleted a significant portion of this model’s body.
A large amount of this model’s body was seemingly deleted in Photoshop, revealing the image’s white background.
Also in 2014, a model’s neck appeared to be elongated to a seemingly unnatural proportion in a Chanel ad for its Perfection Lumiére Velvet foundation.
In 2014, Lady Gaga appeared in a Versace ad.
In 2014, Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel was given massive shoulders.
Swanepoel’s shoulders not only appeared to be popped out of their sockets, but they also looked disproportionate to her body.
In 2009, Emma Watson was made the face of Burberry. In 2010, she appeared in an ad for the designer’s Spring/Summer collection.
It seemed that when the picture was edited, half of Watson’s leg disappeared.
It’s unclear where the rest of her leg went.
In 2009, Ralph Lauren ran an ad in which model Filippa Hamilton’s appearance was edited so much that her head looked larger than her hips.
According to the Daily News, Ralph Lauren claimed that the ad, which only ran in Japan, was released 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. We take full responsibility,” a rep for the designer said in a statement.
After the controversy, 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 alleged.
Ralph Lauren denied her claims. “This [Photoshop] error has absolutely no connection to our relationship with Filippa Hamilton,” a rep for the brand said.
This Urban Outfitters ad has one subtle flaw.
The model’s right leg was nowhere to be found.
Although her leg could have plausibly been covered by her long cardigan, it’s unlikely that it would entirely eclipse it.
This image of an Ann Taylor Loft swimsuit model looked totally off.
Unless she was bent at a particularly awkward angle, the model’s hips and waist didn’t look properly aligned or proportional.
Can you spot what’s wrong with this Vans sneakers ad?
There’s a phantom hand wrapped around the model’s right arm.
It’s unclear who the hand belongs to or what this image’s initial use was.
