The magazine has been accused of darkening the model’s skin as she appears with a completely different complexion than usual.
The cover, shot by photographer Steven Klein, also sees her facial shape altered, which has led to speculation she has been heavily Photoshopped.
The 23-year-old shared the image yesterday, writing: “Thank you so so much for an amazing shoot, I am forever inspired by you all !!! & can’t wait to share the full story !! x ⚡?”
However her fans struggled to believe it was even her and rushed to social media to comment on it.
One person wrote: “I would be upset with the photoshop or makeup artist as it looks like they thinned your face, took away your jaw bone structure and changed/narrowed your nose.
