You would think that in 2015, celebrities and brands would be aware of all the Photoshop mistakes to avoid, especially when there are polls circulating the Internet where everyone can vote for which fail was the worst. If your Photoshop blunder is a meme, then you should probably work a little bit harder to avoid making such obvious mistakes, but those warped backgrounds and missing limbs still happen constantly. Get your popcorn ready: It's time for the most talked-about Photoshop fails from this year.
1. Victoria's Secret removes a butt cheek.
In October, Victoria's Secret landed in hot water for digitally smoothing out a model's butt cheek. The brand promoted the mesh-back cheeky panty on its Facebook page and promptly received backlash over the missing cheek. Commenters played on Victoria's Secret's caption for the post, "Truly. Madly. Cheeky." by calling the botched image "Truly. Horrendous. Photoshop." and "Truly. Madly. Cheekless."
2. Calvin Klein enhances Justin Bieber's entire package.
Beliebers went wild over Justin's Calvin Klein ad campaign, which featured him looking seductively into the camera wearing only a pair of boxer shorts. But a leaked photo of the ad pre-retouching suggested that the brand altered his main assets—abs, biceps, bulge, and even hands—all to make them appear bigger and more defined. Justin's team was quick to deny the authenticity of the leaked photo.
3. Kim Kardashian gets caught cleaning up a photo booth picture.
Someone on Team Kim posted an unretouched photo booth shot of Kim and Kanye West at Kendall Jenner's 20th birthday party, revealing that nothing goes up without a little Photoshop magic.
4. Zendaya calls out Modeliste magazine for Photoshopping her curves.
"These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have," Zendaya wrote in the Instagram post in which she highlighted what Modeliste had done to her body via Photoshop. "Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it." A day later, Modeliste's editor-in-chief wrote a post thanking Zendaya for raising her concerns and pulled the issue to replace them with the unedited version. Bottom line: Don't mess with Zendaya because she will call you out.
5. Moschino erases a model's entire leg.
In January, the luxury fashion brand released its spring 2015 campaign and left fans wondering what happened to model Sasha Luss (center), whose left leg seemed to be missing.
6. GUESS blurs out Gigi Hadid's toenail.
The above image ran in a promotional email that Guess distributed via email in July. Look closely at Gigi's right pinky toe to spot what's missing.
7. Jeb Bush gets a magical black hand.
Not even presidential candidates are safe. Right to Rise, a Jeb Bush super PAC, sent a campaign leaflet to over 85,000 Iowa voters. The mailer featured a photo of Bush with a mysteriously black left hand. Why, Jeb? Why?
8. Ariana Grande grows a huge hand.
Ariana looks amazing in the art for her single, "Focus," but something...happened to her right hand. It looks like it's big enough to cover her whole torso.
9. Lindsay Lohan tries to pop her booty.
LiLo tried to get on board the body positivity movement with this photo, but followers quickly called out the starlet for enhancing her butt in the photo. The warped door and cabinets in the background more than likely led them to believe so.
10. Tara Reid slices off a chunk of her waist.
Tara Reid doesn't have a problem showing off her flawless shape, but the dent near her waistline in this Instagram shot had fans questioning whether or not she used Photoshop to alter her photos. The left side of her waist looks like she literally carved out part of her torso in an effort to make it seem slimmer.
11. Kerry Washington looks a few shades lighter for InStyle.
Kerry Washington's cover for InStyle magazine's March issue had some fans outraged. It appeared that Kerry's skin was digitally altered to look lighter, which the magazine denied. "While we did not digitally lighten Kerry's skin tone, our cover lighting has likely contributed to this concern. We understand that this has resulted in disappointment and hurt. We are listening, and the feedback has been valuable."
