Up until recently, our forums have been pretty supportive of Laura Brown’s tenure at InStyle. However, members have been calling out the blatant airbrushing on the past few covers. Selena Gomez didn’t exactly look like herself on September’s issue and you could barely tell Julianne Moore was the cover star last month. Now, you have to squint to see a hint of Chrissy Teigen on the publication’s November 2017 cover. Photographed by Carter Smith, Chrissy is all smiles in the bright, summery cover (FYI InStyle, it’s fall now) while leaving the majority of our forum members scratching their heads.
“OK, so… this is awkward. The amount of Photoshop in that cover is downright atrocious. They’ve airbrushed Chrissy’s face into oblivion, to the point where she is unrecognizable. Am I the only one who’s sat here shocked? Yikes!” voiced vogue28 the moment the cover dropped.
