It’s been a really good year for “Photoshop vs. real women” awareness, between Glamour‘s plus-sized pooch shot and French Elle‘s no makeup issue. But there’s still a lot of liberal airbrushing going on out there. (We’re watching you, Ralph Lauren.) What we don’t get is when a magazine airbrushes a celebrity to the point where they look almost unrecognizable. Take for example this new Allure cover, which makes Beyonce look like a cat person, ready to pounce. It’s not her least real-looking photo—remember those L’Oreal ads where her skin looked whitewashed?—but still, her face just looks … not like hers.

Here are nine other magazine covers that thoroughly confused us.

  • Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

  • HowAboutWe

  • afc-right-ad

  • Popular
  • afc-right-ad-2
