WTF is this!?
Marie Claire South Africa obviously knew they were never going to get the Duchess of Cambridge to pose for them, so they took matters into their own hands and came up with a fan-made cover.
MC editor Aspasia Karras said of their August issue:
"The cover is actually a hyper-real illustration of Kate, meant to be a fan art tribute to fashion's new royal icon."
We definitely have to hand it to the illustrators who drew the Duchess in the clothes of some local designers, because the likeness is uncanny!
As for the concept, it comes off as desperate.
Do U agree???
