Adam Levine's missing torso, Kristen Stewart's amputated arm and Beyoncé's thighs - it must be the latest round of Photoshop fails

By DAISY DUMAS

No right side: Adam Levine looks like he is missing a fair portion of his torso in an image in Vogue Russia magazine. The Maroon 5 star was photographed with girlfriend, model Anne Vyalitsyna

They need less help than most of us mere mortals in the looks department, yet they continue to be on the receiving end of some far-from realistic airbrushing escapades.

No matter how beautiful, or famous, some celebrities are, it seems they are never far from an embarrassing Photoshop fail.

The latest handful of bloopers comes via some of the world's glossiest and most exclusive magazine titles.


Arm fail: The beautiful figure of Twilight star Kristen Stewart is not quite complete on Glamour's November cover - the star apparently missing her lower left arm

Perhaps most bizarre is Russian Vogue's manifestation of Adam Levine's torso.



The thighs have it: Beyoncé Knowles' upper legs seem on the over-airbrushed side on the cover of U.S. Harper's Bazaar, photographer Terry Richardson whittling the voluptuous star's legs to uncharacteristic proportions

The Maroon 5 singer and boyfriend of Russian model Anna Vyalitsyna, appears to have lost a sizeable portion of his midriff at the hands of over-enthusiastic digital re-touching in the November edition of the magazine.

Rather than slimming down the Californian rock star's toned figure, seen wrapped around Miss Vyalitsyna's never-ending legs, the 32-year-old - who in the past has stripped naked for UK's Cosmopolitan magazine in aid of testicular cancer awareness - is seen with gaping nothingness where his right side should be.


Behind-the-scenes: A film from the shoot shows the star's figure in its more usual, and famous, curvaceous form

An editor at Photoshop Disasters, told MailOnline that the image 'certainly is a disaster and we believe that they removed his torso and maybe increased the width of her leg.'

Not limited to Vogue, Glamour magazine have also fallen prey to over-zealous digital enhancement.

Kristen Stewart, star of the Twilight Saga, appears to be missing her lower left arm on the cover of its November issue.

While the 21-year-old actress may be used to hocus pocus in her role as Bella Swan in the vampire series, there's no doubt that her hidden limb is incongruous in the shot, which was the responsibility of the same team who infamously gave singer Fergie different sized legs and a missing lower torso on a cover last year.

It all makes for an oddly imbalanced image, Miss Stewart's left arm coming to sudden halt at about chest height and disappearing behind her (very flexible) lower leg.


Bootylicious: Beyoncé performed in August, her thighs a healthy and more typical size than those on the cover of Harper's Bazaar

Then there are Beyoncé's lovely legs.

The 30-year-old mega-star, whose first baby with husband Jay-Z is due in February, is a not a woman whose figure cries out for anything other than praise.
