Gossip magazine US Weekly is under fire for “allegedly” altering a photo of Prince George.
As Page Six noted
, George, son to Kate Middleton
and Prince William
, appeared paler and less rosy than depicted on the cover of the mag this week. His eyes also appeared slightly greener as well in the mag.
The editors denied it.
“The original image used for the Prince George cover was dark and bluish in tone and needed to be given an overall color shift for printing purposes,” a spokesperson for US Weekly stated. “By no means did we go in and alter the color of his eyes or cheeks in this process.”
What do you think?
It wouldn’t be the first time a magazine has edited a baby’s complexion and look, if true.
British mag OK! looked to have done the opposite. A photo of Kourtney Kardashian and her son Mason appeared as if Mason had been lightened.
KourtneyK addressed the cover photo, but to object to the way the mag photoshopped her to be thinner. Editors also photoshopped color of her top.
In reply, Kardashian tweeted
, “One of those weeklies got it wrong again…they didn’t have an exclusive with me. And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26…But thanks.”
It’s the type of distortion that causes women to think they should be a certain weight immediately after having a baby.
