Rihanna For Look Magazine

Whilst browsing magazines in my local supermarket today I came across Look magazine and realized that something wasn’t quite right.

Then it dawned on me that since returning to her raven locks, Rihanna hasn’t worn a fuchsia-pink dress.

What the Photoshop team have done is flip horizontally the picture of Rihanna wearing a green Giorgio Armani dress so the split is to the left, changed the colour of the dress to pink then added the head of Rihanna from the ‘Battleship’ Japan premiere.

I guess this is one of the dilemmas publications face when trying to keep up with a cover star who keeps changing her hairstyle, but it seems like a lot of work.

Surely it would’ve been easier to just put the picture of Rihanna from the ‘Battleship’ premiere on the cover? No?

    They also changed the background, the side the slit was on the dress, and the background!

    If I were her, I’d sue.

    Seriously? I’m in shock.

    Investigative reporting at its best!

        This is just like fashion Sherlock. A little guilty pleasure sure is good.

    they probably saw the horrible pyjama ensembles she has been sporting lately and went for something a little nicer.

    I’ve noticed a lot of photoshopping on magazine covers but this is the most ridiculous one.

    This is so silly! “Oh, Rihanna won’t pose for us so we’ll just make up a picture of her from her last thirty red carpet outings! No one will know!”

    Look magazine does not deserve a look.

    Not surprised, this seem to be what tabloids and celeb mags do for a living these days.
    OK Magazine has been doing this for years, with the Beckham’s being one of their favourite subject to photoshop.
    The public (not fans/followers) think they’re posing for magazines 24/7 (whoring publicity) when in fact it’s the magazine who’s to blame for simply re-using and photoshop old images.

    How is this even legal?

    • jkrau April 20, 2012 at 04:55 #

      I was wondering the same thing! Between laughing hysterically, of course.

  16. Giuseppi Giraffe April 19, 2012 at 20:52 #

    HA! Wow- good catch. I wonder why they didn’t just use an existing shot :P

    • Rebecca Z April 20, 2012 at 00:38 #

      They didn’t want to pay for it.

  17. Carolina Roq April 19, 2012 at 22:03 #

    LOL

    Wow, impressed by the Sherlock Holmes-like skills in identifying fashion items that must lie behind this post!

    And yeah, wonder why they did all that work – but I guess that despite the half a million other stars to choose from they still believe at it sells better with Rihanna on the front page, so in that way it pays off..

    Fashionista just credited you with figuring this out :)

      Thanks for daring. Love it x

    ROFL. Saw this somewhere else too and got a chuckle. So clearly photoshoped.

    AND, “Surely it would’ve been easier to just put the picture of Rihanna from the ‘Battleship’ premiere on the cover? No?” NOPE, FC! Wasn’t an option. That pyjama outfit was just terrible.
