Without the obvious name in the bottom left-hand corner, can you honestly recognize this Australian-born beauty? Haute Muse has a habit of retouching models on the cover to make them look like anything but themselves. Along with Miranda Kerr's retouched photo, Haute Muse also retouched Kim Kardashian's photo for the December 2011 issue.

 

Miranda Kerr is known for her bright, youthful face, and this cover doesn't give off that vibe. With the style dress Kerr is wearing and the smokey eye, she appears much older than 28-years-old. She is a young and beautiful girl, and she doesn't need to be retouched.

Below are some more recognizable photos of Miranda Kerr. 

Why do you think Haute Muse decided to retouch Kerr's photo?
