Vogue Photoshop Fail Leads to ‘Kanye is a Vampire’ Memes


Let’s play a little game of “I Spy.” This time, it’s going to involve a suspicious-looking photo of the #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

As seen in the couple’s latest Vogue spread, the above photograph supposedly depicts Mr. West using his iPad to capture a photograph of Mrs. Kardashian and their beloved child. However, there seems to be a few things that don’t exactly line up. And by a few, I mean a dozen or so.

Photoshop fails are by no means a scarce resource when it comes to magazines, but a photo this obviously wrong just isn’t something you’d expect to see in a Vogue spread shot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz.

Rather than pointing out the flaws in the image though, we’ll take Gizmodo‘s lead and let you put your detective skills to the test. Point out what aspects of this Photoshop disaster are off and we’ll see how many we can rack up in the comments below.

We’ll start you off with an obvious one that has sparked a new “Kanye is a Vampire” meme: where is Kanye’s reflection?

    the guys is not reflected… the background in the ipad is different … the light on her and the baby do not match the environment and of course the angle of the ipad does not match the image… so it was pasted bad pasted and I didnt take the time to write their names because their are useless…

  • argghhh

    tablet is inserted, hands are awkward, no one is reflected in the mirror and the image on the tablet has been copied from the image we see, as it is from the exact perspective of the photographer not from the guy holding the tablet

  • Broseph of Arimathea

    That actually looks exactly like something Vladimir would do. Only he would have a Russian flag wearing bear on the fifty cal.

  • James Allen

    I have to agree with @mthouston:disqus – who cares?

    That being said, whoever edited this photo should have at least tried harder. It looks like they missed out on using the Perspective Warp tool in Photoshop CC – that could have helped the clearly pasted/cropped photo of Kim and the baby on the iPad.

    That baby has his mom’s thighs

  • harumphsux

    You lose: you thought it was real. Idiot.

  • Matt Smart

    The real question is:
    If Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were caught in a house fire, which sandwich would you make?

  • Jake

    “George Bush doesn’t care about black people!”

  • M. Valdez

    #mostphotoshopfail for the #mosttalkedaboutcouple, go figure

  • Oberma

    Shut up. This has nothing to do with misogyny and everything to do with the fact that she’s terrible and should be famous or a role model. The are men out there just like her. Yiu aren’t the pc police so stop thinking everything is racist or sexist.

  • Rick

    Many times when I see this Kim Kardashian she looks a shemale, her face bone structure is very ugly. But most importantly, what does she do for a living? Honestly, please tell me.

  • John Thomas

    Dry up wet blanket. You nearly put me to sleep with your feminist propaganda. And as a matter of fact she has a massive butt. Read my digital lips – m-ass-ive… You’ll notice there’s an ass in there and it’s Kim’s. It’s so big it cracked my screen. Now back to reality and a bit of photography. Now where’s the blog on how to make infamous butts smaller…

  • MMME

    guess it depends on where you draw the line ey?

  • Sanoc

    Kim Kardashian looks like a travesti

  • ims63

    I do love Photoshop fails but… This shot was taken at Kardashian’s eye level and in such a way that Kanye’s reflection is behind her… The shot was taken to hide his reflection, all one needs to do is look with perspective… The big fail here is the tablet in his hand… the image on the screen is the wrong angle, it’s clipped from the photo…

  • Nafeesa

    where are the reflexion of the people? no reflection of kanye at all. true seems like he became a vampire.

  • Dana

    Oh my god, everyone is taking this completely in the wrong direction with “who cares?” Well I care, but not about the stupid crap you all are arguing about. I care because it is appalling that such an esteemed and high end magazine, would let something like this slip. Especially in a full 2 page spread. It just seems like someone should have caught this before millions of copies were printed.

  • Jacqueline Dessel

    Who the hell cares? Photoshop has features to do this to… well, DO this. That’s what it’s used for. Why would anyone consider this a fail?

  • Mike

    The line is very blurred when you are a gay vampire fish.

  • Conni Spellman

    Actually this is her third marriage…..

  • Ridgecity

    “the legendary Annie Leibovitz” has changed to “too-busy-to-pay-attention-to-her-work Annie Leibovitz”

  • Matt Wheeler

    Additionally, they shot her near dead on with a pretty wide angle and there are zero reflections of any equipment whatsoever. Photoshop win? TBH this could’ve been shot without significant editing. Someone got bored.

  • iAwani

    how did they delete Kanye’s reflection on the mirror? hmm.. hmm..

  • Sir Stewart Wallace

    Aside from moderate success as a hair-dresser, she’s only famous for creating a sex tape with a third rate rapper (Ray J) and having a big ass, which is the constant focus of her media coverage. It’s very likely that she’d have continued to be a successful person despite the leaked sex tape, however, she would have not likely been very famous.

    Sex sells and it sold her name to the public.

  • Bill Owen

    Kim is her ass, there is nothing else. She’s like John Holmes was, there was only one very big way to talk about him.

    Find some real misogyny to complain about, lots of it out there.
