Kim Kardashian busted in 'embarrassing' photoshop lie by fans as star posts edited photo from Met Gala

FANS have called out Kim Kardashian for a photoshopping fail in a photo from the Met Gala.

Kim, 41, channeled Marylin Monroe by wearing the actress's iconic dress from when she sang "Happy Birthday" to John F. Kennedy in 1962.

Fans are still talking about her memorable ensemble on fashion's biggest night, as she continues to share photos from the evening.

Viewers, however, took issue with one picture, as the reality star appeared to have edited her legs in the gown.

One Reddit user pointed out the faux pas by posting side-by-side snaps, comparing the altered photo and the original Getty image.

The photo captured Kim from behind as she walked up the Met Gala stairs with her boyfriend, Pete Davidson.

The TV star showed off her look to the cameras in the body-hugging gown as her comedian beau was guiding her up the stairs.

Eagle-eyed fans, however, noticed her legs seemed to be photoshopped, showing a slight difference between the original image and the one Kim shared.

There is a natural curvature in Kim's leg in the actual shot, showing her bending her knees to climb the stairs.

Meanwhile, the curve disappeared in the seemingly edited photo, capturing the SKIMS founder with two straight legs.

The user who pointed out the mishap wrote: "My new hobby is looking at what silly stuff Kim edits from the professional event photos for her Instagram."

Others mocked the model for her photoshopping skills.

"Her knees??? I actually think they look better in the Getty image! Also dear god that dress does not fit her UGH," one person wrote.

"I’m embarrassed for her," another agreed.

"Her left calf now has muscle!" a third remarked, while a fourth had a similar comment, writing: "Her knee disappeared!"


Kim faced backlash after wearing the historic gown as many felt she decreased the dress' value with her red carpet appearance.

One concerned fan raised the question in the comments of one of Kim's posts from the night.

"Does the dress now decrease its (symbolic, economic) value?

"Because Marilyn not being the last person who’s worn it… Just curious…" they asked.

The question led to a mixed bag of responses as one person said: "She definitely cheapens it. This move has me heated, sorry.

"On Marilyn it was breathtaking, on this one it's just another tight dress."

Another added: "… It probably depends on who the buyer is (if it is auctioned again).

"But for the general public? Yeah, honestly I’d say it kind of loses a bit of its magic and specialness."

While a third chimed responded: "Yes, 100% it does."

Others thought it was a positive move for the dress as one wrote: "I think it absolutely increases its value. It has been brought back to relevance and public knowledge — so many people weren’t aware of the dress before and know it has become famous, again…"


The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, 41, has been feeling the heat since wearing the famous dress as she was even accused of damaging the gown.

TMZ previously showed Kim's butt popping out of a massive hole in the back as she and boyfriend Pete, 28, visited Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Orlando, Florida, to see the dress.

The museum pulled out the dress just 10 days before it made its Met Gala debut, and a room full of people used their strength to get the TV personality into the dress.

However, despite their efforts, the dress could not fit over her rear end.

In a head-turning moment, the crew was forced to leave the back of the gown open to avoid ripping, exposing Kim's underwear.
