Demi Moore’s Disappearing Hip
On the December cover of W magazine, Demi Moore's left hip doesn't line up with the rest of her leg. (look right above the 'R' in Moore.) It would seem that a photo editor must have screwed up. According to

Although W has a history of using master retoucher Pascal Dangin for its celebrity covers and fashion editorials, the magazine's rep says that the retouching was done in-house by Alas and Piggott's staff. We contacted Demi's rep, too, but haven't heard back.

I haven't seen any better-looking zombies. I haven't seen any worse-looking zombies, either. Except in the movies, of course.

However, Demi certainly does look like she could use a few good hot meals. Maybe acting jobs are harder to come by these days?
