Katie's Kate Avatar
Do you remember? When Katie Grand started this magazine she made quite a big deal of not being overly heavy-handed with Photoshop? Ms Grand was going to go against the tide and publish 'real' images: But look at this cover. Notice anything strange? It's so photoshopped that Kate looks like an avatar of Kate (in fact, she's so worked over that she's looking a bit like Karolina Kurkova?). It's so worked over that it is only minimally a photo - it's more like an illustration isn't it? We all know Kate Moss doesn't look like this, don't we? It's an idea of Kate Moss, that's all, just the idea of her.
