Magazine Photoshop Madness



Harper's Bazaar could use a less heavy-handed designer to work on their covers. Trying to perfect ex-model Cameron Diaz's mug was too big of a task, so they just rubbed out her face and made a new one.

Why do they do this? The aim of a celebrity cover is to increase sales. Magazines want a big name who everyone will recognise and have an interest in. To wipe the character and individuality out of that person's face completely negates the point of choosing a famous actress in the first place. Not to mention the fact that Cameron looks far better with her real (post-op) nose, non scooped-out shoulder and regular waistline.

And don't even get me started on Britney's massive bashed-on-too-far-down-her-neck Barbie head for US Cosmopolitan. There are no words.

  2. It's so silly, she looks gorgeous in the right photo but so fake and un-natural on the cover of the magazine x
