Can you spot the Photoshop fail in this picture of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid?

This picture of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid might just have be the worst Photoshop fail we've seen.
Top models Kendall and Gigi appear on the cover of W magazine's 10th anniversary issue, but they're both missing one very important thing - their knees.
The Art Issue sees both models edited to have animal-like qualities throughout the spread, named Placebo Pets, however we can't help but wonder whether the lack of knees was intentional.
Another image from the shoot sees Gigi's arm stretched and thinned, while she also has no elbow.
Artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin explore how cameras, social media, and reality TV have changed the way we engage with the world and with one another. In this project for W’s Art Issue, titled "placebo pets," supermodels @KendallJenner and @GigiHadid appear as super friendly, domesticated humanoid pets. Fitch and Trecartin see in our relationship to pets a parallel with our relationship to technology, in the way that we’ve been trained to adapt our behavior, our language, and the images we choose to present our changing selves. “There’s a certain power that animals have over us when they respond to us in unexpected, friendly ways,” says Trecartin. “And it’s really them domesticating us almost more than us domesticating them, because they’re training us to want them. Training and taming something is not one-sided. We created social media, but then it changed us because we interacted with it." Read more in an interview with @DianeSolway on wmag.com.

The blunders didn't go unnoticed once the photos were revealed, and fans of the pair have been taking to the internet to point out several other mistakes, including a lack of gaps in Kendall's teeth.
A spokesperson for W magazine was contacted by Buzzfeed, and said the distortions were intentional, although we're not convinced.
“The images of Kendall and Gigi are part of a project by artists Lizzie Fitch and Ryan Trecartin, who are known for their deliberate use of digital technology, combining distortions with makeup and prosthetics.”
