Leibovitz Photo Blooper

Is it possible the times are so tough at Conde Naste that they've let all their proof readers and copy editors go? Perhaps, because Jezebel just caught this Photoshop blooper on Annie Leibovitz's portrait of Kate Winslet and her husband/director Sam Mendes. Check the coat sleeve on Sam — now you see it, now you don't.

Just in case you were curious to see whether or not Sam's coat may have been half-on, half-off, check the video to see that it wasn't. Oops. Does anyone remember the days when a photographer couldn't use the magic of digital manipulation to merge and purge elements in their photos?

I don't think it matters if

I don't think it matters if he was wearing the jacket when the photo was snapped or not. The fact is that it looks awkward and draws attention and that makes it an error even if that is an un-manipulated image. Annie Liebovitz is a better photographer than that so I'm surprised by this.

Maybe it was the same photo

Maybe it was the same photo editor who worked on a picture of Lindsay Lohan for a new photobook (Room 23).

She's posing in a bathroom mirror and her hand and leg placement are different from her reflection!

If you look at her right

If you look at her right shoulder it looks like she may have the right side of the jacket on.

The video is only a minute

The video is only a minute long. The photo shoot is hours long. This proves nothing except that during that minute, this pose/shot was not taken.

And the whole angle of his arm looks weird; makes her look like a substantiated ghost emerging from someplace odd. :roll:

Will be interesting to see if

Will be interesting to see if the "sleeve" ends up being excused and some "meaning" given for its presence - BS in the name of art....Now, IMHO, the photo is not done well whether there is a sleeve or not. His hand below and in front of her face is all wrong - she is such a beautiful woman - there should be nothing taking away from that.....

i actually don't know who would be responsible for those things... probably the photo editor, maybe the art director... in any case i'm sure someone got it.

My guess is that many many eyes have to approve a photo like that, right? Ouch.
