After undergoing a makeover, Marie Claire is back on our radar with several gorgeous covers in recent months featuring the likes of Zendaya, Amy Adams and Emily Ratajkowski. In a bold effort to overhaul its image, the American fashion glossy is pulling out all the stops, landing Nicole Kidman as its cover star for October 2018. We’ve called out our fair share of Photoshop blunders over the years, but Marie Claire‘s latest takes the cake. Photographed by Thomas Whiteside, styled by Joseph Errico and drowning in an overload of red (from Nicole’s hair to the studio backdrop), the Aussie actress is barely recognizable in her latest cover appearance.
Our forum members were speechless — almost. “Who’s that?” asked KissMiss the minute the cover came to light.
“That’s like someone paying a camgirl to be Nicole Kidman,” snarked tigerrouge.
“I literally busted out laughing at first look. That… is… hysterical…,” said dfl-001.
