This is bananas!
A freshly banged Lauren Conrad is almost unrecognizable on the July issue of Marie Claire.
Wearing a black and yellow Fausto Puglisi dress, LC is a dead ringer for a much younger looking Rachel Zoe.
What the Photoshop Marie Claire!? If you want to sell copies, which Lauren can clearly do, you should have left her face alone!
Luckily for the inside spread, LC reverts back to her old self as she poses poolside in an Emilio Pucci bathing suit and her own Paper Crown line.
Ugh, if only they used one of those photos for the cover instead!
Check Lauren's editorial in its entirety (below)!
Where do U think MC went wrong with her cover???
