In the fashion industry, it is extremely uncommon for a photograph to remain untouched. Before a professional photograph reaches the public eye, it goes through hours of adjustments in Photoshop, Lightroom, or other editing tools.
While professional photographers and editors pride themselves on being able to adjust reality while still making something look natural, they are still human and are not immune to mistakes. The latest issue of Vanity Fair proves just that.
On Thursday, Vanity Fair released the images from their annual Hollywood issue. The photographer for the shoot was world-renown Annie Liebowitz, one of the best photographers the industry has ever seen. However, whoever was the editor of the images is now being called out for their "sloppy" photo editing.
The original issue was over the below image. When it was posted on social media, followers began to point out that it looked like Reese Witherspoon had been given an extra leg.
The "third leg" in question gained so much attention on social media that Reese Witherspoon even tweeted about it.
She said, "Well...I guess everybody knows now...I have 3 legs."
Vanity Fair responded to the critique, however, claiming it was a trick of the eye. They said that the thing that looks like a leg going straight down is actually the lining of her dress.
They were not, however, able to find an excuse for the other major photoshop mishap in the photographs. In one of the behind-the-scenes images, Oprah Winfrey, who was just in headlines for her 2020 presidential remarks, now apparently has three hands!
As is seen in the photo, Oprah has one hand on her hip, one hand on her lap, and one had around Reese's waist.
Oprah responded to Witherspoon's tweet and said, "I accept your 3rd leg. As I know you accept my 3rd hand."
Vanity Fair responded to that photoshop mishap by admitting their mistake in a humorous way.
