An image posted on Instagram last week has the internet going cray.
Victoria’s Secret posted a photo of Angels Stella Maxwell and Martha
Hunt in lingerie. Typical, sexy VS photo, right? Well, in what was
supposed to be promotional photo for free panties, fans zoomed in on
something totally different. In the photo, there appears to be something
weird going on with Martha’s arm.
Victoria’s Secret is legendary when it comes to putting out super
altered photos. Fans are always there to call them out and this time was
no different. They went IN. One guy went so far to give a
numbered list of what was wrong with the photo. You gotta see it.
“Weird Photoshop, look at her left arm LOL”,said on one comment under this photo.
Once fans looked closely at Martha’s arm (left), they pointed out suspicious white marks under her armpit.
They also claimed that her stomach looked a bit abnormal, but it may be just the way she posed.
Expert chimes in
Ashley Hewson, an expert from Serif, the UK company that makes Affinity Photo, the professional editing tool, told MailOnline, “Modern image editing software is so effective that it’s hard to be certain, but the wavy outline of her inner arm might suggest that a distortion process called liquifying has taken place.
The patchy white areas could also indicate that a different area of the photo has been duplicated and put into that space.”
Some fans had a better eye than others, pointing our specific manipulations…
A closer, closer look
Viewers with a really good eye spotted Martha’s arm looking suspiciously long because of the way her elbow was sticking out from behind Stella.
One commenter got real and called Photoshop.
“It’s obvious they Photoshopped another photo of Hunt onto this particular photo.
her abdominal and obliques (stomach area) aren’t lining up correctly and 2.
her arms are disproportionate.”
But this isn’t the first time the company has been called out for photoshopping…
Years of manipulating
Over the years, both the media and social media followers have caught seriously manipulated body parts on Victoria’s Secret models.
Angel Candice Swanepoel (left) has been a recurring victim of sexy VS photoshopping.
She’s appeared in at least three pictures with warped features.
