It looks like Vogue made a hames of the Photoshop on its new front cover


VOGUE’S COVER FOR its March issue was revealed last night – and it’s a celebration of the “modern American woman”, featuring Liu Wen, Ashley Graham, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Imaan Hammam, Adwoa Aboah, and Vittoria Ceretti on the cover:

As soon as it was posted though, people picked up on a rather curious section of the photo:

Gigi Hadid’s hand looks… surprisingly long

There were instant claims of bad Photoshop

Everyone had the same question: “why does it look like her fingers are so far away from her hand?”

While some thought it might be an intentional move

Ashley Graham has defended the shot on Instagram, commenting that she was not directed in any way:

I chose to pose like that. No one told me to do anything.

The main theory on Gigi’s hand is that it’s Photoshopped, but there’s another possibility: that the fingers actually belong to Ashley Graham and Gigi’s fingers are hidden behind the arm


The conspiracies are raging about what will forever be known as “Gigi’s Hand”
