Photoshop Fail: Twitter Is Not Happy About Michelle Obama's 'InStyle' Cover

The magazine went too far on FLOTUS's face.

Published September 8, 2016

Michelle Obama graces the cover of not one, but two magazines this month, but one of them has people talking for all the wrong reasons.

While FLOTUS and her husband, President Barack Obama, are the epitome of Black love in the latest issue of Essence, Twitter is not a fan of the first lady's image on her solo cover of InStyle. Many are calling out the fashion magazine for excessively photoshopping Michelle's already flawless face, making her barely recognizable — not an easy thing to do to one of the most photographed women in the world.

Here's the photo that has people up in arms:

Twitter isn't letting this one slide:

In the cover story, Michelle describes her personal style as "very casual. No makeup, a T-shirt, and a pair of ripped jean shorts or workout pants because I’m always on the verge of going to or coming from [working out]. I love color and pieces that make me feel good, but it’s much more informal.”

Looks like a lot of her fans on Twitter wished InStyle would just let the real Michelle shine through on the cover as well.
