Behold the photo of Victoria Beckham that got everyone screaming ‘Photoshop fail!’

Victoria is the cover-girl for Vogue China‘s May 2016 issue. The magazine proudly made the announcement on its Instagram last week by posting the cover photo for fans to enjoy. Check it out!

While the cover is all fine and dandy and no one complained, fans are having a big issue with the above photo of Victoria doing a Yoga pose. Why? Because it appears that a part of her leg has been Photoshoped. If you look closely at the photo, you will notice that there’s a part missing from the designer’s leg. Look at the thigh gap. Do you see it? Of course you do and so did millions of fans when the designer shared the image on her Instagram.

Loved working on this shoot for @voguechina May issue. Thank u @inezandvinoodh, @wendyrowe, @georgecortina and @shayashual x vb

As soon as the collage was posted, the photo became viral and had fans speculating whether it’s all an eye trick or bad use of Photoshop. According to the brand, it’s nothing but a trick. “The photo shows the shirt tucked under the leg, resulting in a trick of the eye that the tabloids have erroneously picked up on. There is no Photoshopping controversy to comment on“, a spokesperson told WWD.

Vogue China has not commented on the photo controversy.

What do you think of this photo of Victoria Beckham: Photoshop fail or eye trick?
