Copy Kate

Photoshop Kate Special

It’s hard not to be amused by this hilariously awful Marie Claire South Africa cover, featuring the photoshopped head and hands of Kate, stitched onto the body of a fashion model wearing a rather vile creation by a local designer.

One thing I’m telling you, if La Principessa Middleton ever steps out in this combo, it’ll be off to the fashion tower with her.

It’s truly ghastly, isn’t it (although probably better than having your head photo-shopped full of rotten teeth)? This cover is probably the best reason ever for Kate to get her shit together and do the inevitable Vogue interview and cover shoot sooner rather than later.

"We were so inspired by her fairytale wedding and her life as a modern-day princess [that] we elected Kate Middleton as our cover star for the August issue," says editor, Aspasia Karras to the Telegraph. "The cover is actually a hyper-real illustration of Kate, meant to be a fan art tribute to fashion's new royal icon."
