Vanity Fair’s March cover fuck-up is the most embarrassing thing I have ever seen

Worse than Oprah with three hands

Last month, a Vanity Fair photoshop fuck-up left Oprah and Reese Witherspoon with a bunch of extra body parts, like a few hands and legs, but this month's fuck-up is almost . . . more insane?

Sure, Jennifer Lawrence, the magazine's March cover star, doesn't have a third eye superimposed onto her forehead or anything, but their cover is basically the exact same cover as the one on the December issue of The Hollywood Reporter, according to the New York Post, and people have noticed.

The photo of J Law on the cover of Vanity Fair shows her looking to the left of the camera with a stream of light cutting across her face and her lips parted, and the photo on the cover of the Hollywood Reporter . . . also shows J Law looking to the left of the camera with a stream of light cutting across her face and her lips parted.

Even the font is EXACTLY the same. I mean, if you're going to copy someone else's homework at least change a few of the answers.

Insiders say Vanity Fair's editor Radhika Jones was "scrambling in recent days to at least switch out the fonts in a bid to minimize the embarrassment," and now the cover looks like this:

But I'd say this is still pretty embarrassing. And insiders agree, calling the cover "painfully close to the December cover of The Hollywood Reporter."

Sources said by the time the mistake was caught, it was too late and too expensive to reshoot, so I guess they're just gonna go balls to the walls with this one.

Also, not that it's her fault, but did J Law just like not notice she was doing the exact same shoot she'd done two months before? Or do you think she does so many shoots she forgets about those things? After all, these are probably two of the most high-profile magazines she's shot with in recent months. You'd think something would ring a bell.

Perhaps the magazine is just fucking up its covers for attention at this point. It's working.
