Demi Moore's Hips Retouched (Again), Photographer Claims
The photographer who accused W magazine of "clumsily" retouching its December covergirl, Demi Moore, is firing off another accusation, claming the magazine's Korean issue has altered the actress' hips.
In November, fashion photographer Anthony Citrano said that a portion of Moore's left hip appeared to have been digitally erased on the cover. Both W creative director Dennis Freedman and photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott denied any retouching. Moore's lawyer Marty Singer even demanded a public apology from Citrano.
In an email to UsMagazine.com, Citrano says he wants to put "an end to the ridiculousness" that Moore wasn't retouched. So he points out that W's sister publication in Korea, W Korea, has used the same buzzed-about Moore image on its January cover.
"That's not the stunning part, though - the stunner is that they fixed the hip that Demi, her lawyers, and W insisted wasn't edited," Citrano writes.
Added Citrano, "So either W's Korean staff *added a fake hip* (which surely, under Demi's and her lawyers' standards, would be defamatory) or I was correct all along and the December cover had a blooper. Either way, this will hopefully prompt the apology I demanded, and we can move on to far more important things."
A lawyer for Moore has yet to comment.
