Marie Claire South Africa

Magazines will clearly do anything to have Kate Middleton on their cover.

Including fake a picture.

Kate has declined to appear on the covers of both British and American Vogue.

So when it came time to settle on a cover star for their August issue, Marie Claire South Africa took matters into their own hands by photoshopping an image of Prince William‘s wife.

Marie Claire SA’s cover was expressly designed to look as if the future Queen of England had struck a pose for the mag while rocking threads by famed South African designer Clive Rundle.

“Kate Middleton is, without a doubt, the world’s new style icon,” Aspasia Karras, Marie Claire SA‘s editor, explained of their “hyper-real” issue.

“We have honored her with a fan-art tribute, dressing her up in clothes by South African designers and placing her in all sorts of fun, everyday situations.”

Britian outraged by Middleton Cover

Kate Middleton has been revered for her style, her grace, her charm, ever since she first came into the royal picture several years ago. She is generally beloved by her English subjects, so when someone pokes fun at her or takes aim at the royal family, it doesn’t go over well across the pond.

That’s just what’s happening now, as a U.S.-based magazine New Republic has made Middleton their target, even going so far as to photoshop a crude picture of her on their cover which features the duchess sporting cracked yellow teeth. The headline reads, “Something’s Rotten: The Last Days Of Britain”. The issue is all about England’s decline and even takes a shot at the country’s football teams.

The image, as well as the headline, has drawn immediate backlash from those it concerns, as people in the U.K. come to the defense of the duchess and her teeth. One commenter said:

“Not cool. I am not an imperialist (not even close!), but she seems to be a genuine person. She is young, beautiful, and privileged. Apparently grave sins to many people. Yet I wonder if these are the same critics who keep up on the Kardashians, or whatever flavour of the month Hollywood squirts out. She is a person who did not deserve this low blow. Shame on them. I wouldn’t even think to read anything from them ever again.”

Many comments on the issue are similar, taking umbrage at the fact that the magazine appears to be laying all the blame for the country’s problems on Middleton’s shoulders. However, some think that perhaps the imagery, however poorly chosen, is only meant to represent a decaying system in decline.

Whatever the reason, the editors of the magazine have gotten themselves into a world of hurt with the cover. They have so far declined to comment.

Personally, i think its so rude of them to do this to gorgeous Kate’s appearance.
