Doutzen Kroes is legless

There’s “blink and you’ll miss it” and it seems that, when one works as a Photoshop retoucher, there’s “spend so long and you’ll remove it.” At least that seems to be the case with the June issue of Vogue China in which model Doutzen Kroes unceremoniously had a leg removed.
