Last week, reps from W told Jezebel they “did not do anything unusual or out of the ordinary on Demi Moore for the photo on the cover of W.” Many had wondered what exactly the magazine did to allow Demi’s left hip to cut in farther than her left thigh. Noting, secondly, the lack of any sort of wrinkle on Demi’s face or body, particularly the armpit area (so normal for a 47-year-old), a professional retoucher and friend of the Cut suspected a lot of retouching had been done. Now, cover conspiracy theorists on blogs Oh No They Didn’t and Pop Culture Madness suggest W Photoshopped Demi’s face onto the body of Anja Rubik, as shot on the runway in the spring 2010 Balmain show.
Jezebel notes there is no need for the magazine to do that when they did their own shoot with Demi Moore and have the world’s best retouchers at their disposal. Our retouching expert notes celebrity heads are often only Photoshopped onto models’s bodies for advertisements.
