This magazine made a hames of photoshopping Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid's knees


KENDALL JENNER AND Gigi Hadid are two of the most successful models in the world today so it’s no surprise that they made the cover of W Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Art Issue.

There they are now.

Artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin explore how cameras, social media, and reality TV have changed the way we engage with the world and with one another. In this project for W’s Art Issue, titled "placebo pets," supermodels @KendallJenner and @GigiHadid appear as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets. Fitch and Trecartin see in our relationship to pets a parallel with our relationship to technology, in the way that we’ve been trained to adapt our behavior, our language, and the images we choose to present our changing selves. “There’s a certain power that animals have over us when they respond to us in unexpected, friendly ways,” says Trecartin. “And it’s really them domesticating us almost more than us domesticating them, because they’re training us to want them. Training and taming something is not one-sided. We created social media, but then it changed us because we interacted with it." Read more in an interview with @DianeSolway on wmag.com.

What is a surprise, however, is the dodgy Photoshop job the magazine did on their knees.

Yes, W Magazine decided to Photoshop Kendall and Gigi’s knees so they resembled a smooth Barbie doll knee as opposed to, you know, a functioning human knee.

Yeah, that’s not how knees are supposed to look.

Not only did they make a hames of their knees, but they also made Gigi Hadid look like Stretch Armstrong

And Kendall’s teeth have all melted into one

Needless to say, the gaffes have not gone unnoticed.

Knees are so out, guys.


Time for someone to get a tutorial in Photoshop again, we think.
