Some commenters on social media are questioning why Ashley had to pose with her hand on her thigh, speculating that it may be to make her appear smaller.

“I chose to pose like that. No one told me to do anything,” Ashley wrote in the comments section of her Instagram post.

There’s also some criticism about the length of Gigi‘s arm.

  • Wendy

    I guess if it’s real she can be cast in the next Fantastic Four and they can save a lot on CGI.

    That’s not Gigi’s arm. That’s Kendall’s arm. Gigi’s right hand is on Kendall’s shoulder. Granted, this is a mess of photoshop and strange splicing, but that’s not Gigi’s arm.

    Ashley is pretty but that’s a terrible expression. It looks like they snapped her as she was either about to say something or had just finished a smile. There’s nothing special about any of these women.

    It’s not her hand. Her hand is on Kendall’s shoulder.

  • Liz

    If you look at the hand on Ashley’s hip, that’s meant to be Gigi’s left hand. Is obviously photoshopped. That arm is too long and too thin.

  • Casey C

    models are rarely ‘pretty’ or ‘beautiful’ really. They’re interesting looking or have particular angles that photograph well, but model doesnt generally = attractive

  • Gina

    They’re talking about Gigi’s left hand that extends across both Kendall & Ashley’s waist.

    Oh I see! Don’t know what I was thinking.

    It’s bizarre, and I can’t imagine why they would do that unless they’re trying to cover Ashley’s (chubby) side rolls, or because the women weren’t actually in the same spot when the photo was taken. Looks like there could be lots of splicing going on there.

  • Wendy

    Look closer, that is her hand.

  • cutitout

    Almost ALL magazine covers are photoshopped, cut and pasted, and spliced unless otherwise specified. It’s quite possible that they took a head or two from one photo and shopped them onto another shot.

    Its funny how people complain about photoshop but let a photo of someone get out showing a stomach roll, wrinkles, cellulite, etc……..

  • Sabrina

    Imaan Hammam is very beautiful too IMO.
