Well, you're not alone.

This Vogue China image of Victoria Beckham is sparking social media debate, with many arguing that it's another example of women being heavily Photoshopped in professional shoots.

The British model shared an Instagram video still of her Vogue China shoot over the weekend, and many commenters swiftly pointed out that a huge chunk of her thigh appears to be missing.




Others were skeptical that the image was edited and said it just looks Photoshopped because of her underwear:


Beckham's spokesperson told The Telegraph that the model's shirt was simply "tucked under from behind" and cast doubt on the chatter that the image was edited to remove a piece of her leg. ATTN: has contacted Condé Nast, the media company that owns Vogue China, regarding the image and will update this story if the company confirms or denies the Photoshopping claims.

Earlier this year, Vogue China came under fire for its cover of model Gigi Hadid.

As the website FabFitFun pointed out, Hadid has previously shared an Instagram photo revealing she has moles on her stomach. The Vogue China cover, however, does not show these moles, even though her torso is in the photo:

The lingerie brand Victoria's Secret has also faced criticism for apparent Photoshop fails in the past.

Late last year, the brand was battered on Facebook after posting a photo of a model whose butt and right arm appeared to be heavily doctored.



Truly. Madly. Cheeky.
