Who's in hot water for a Photoshop mishap this week? Vogue China.

Baring her midriff and those coveted abs, the 20-year-old model gazes into the camera with her hands above her head giving us a clear view of the absent beauty marks.

As reported by E! Online, fans wasted no time calling out the Photoshop choice, which also includes Gigi's Dutch-Palestinian skin tone being lightened, with comments saying, "They edit you too much, your gorgeous birth marks and all," "Wow, they totally covered up all your beauty marks on your stomach," and, "This is so airbrushed that her moles aren't even showing."


As many commenters are also pointing out, the choice to Photoshop may lie in the "sought-after light complexions" that are envious in many Asian countries, "where light skin is often an indication of class," as Refinery29 reports.


"The Chinese market really values fair, blemish free skin - it's how they would photoshop any celebrity. It's just a different demographic guys," one user writes in the comments.


And this isn't the first time Gigi's "cute lil freckles" have been wiped away. Both Victoria's Secret and Sports Illustrated have been caught removing blond beauty's moles before.
