After a picture from a recent Victoria’s Secret photoshoot started circulating around the internet, people began to notice something rather odd.
A photo of four Victoria’s Secret models has gone viral, catching the attention of people across the internet, but not for the reasons you may think.
The four lingerie models, including superstars Alessandra Ambrosio and Miranda Kerr, stood together on a beach wearing only white bikinis and natural makeup, smiling and flaunting their toned bodies and gorgeous windblown hair.
But one small detail in the image left people concerned, and had many questioning whether it was a photoshop error or a confusing optical illusion.
Take a look at the picture below, and see if you can figure it out for yourself.
“A little unsettling,” the original poster captioned the photo, which was posted on image sharing and image hosting service Imgur. The image has been viewed by more than 410,000 people.
Many concerned people noticed that Karolina Kurkov, the blonde model standing second from the left in the image, appears to not have a belly button.
“Not innie, not outie, Noughty,” one person wrote.
Another person wondered whether the model was missing her “belly button from her last tummy tuck.”
While it may appear that the missing belly button happened because of a photoshop error, the truth is that that area of the image was not significantly retouched. Kurkova actually has a belly button, but it is not pronounced like most people’s belly buttons are.
Here is another image of Kurkova from a slightly different angle:
Over the years, photo editors have attempted to retouch images of Kurkova to make it appear as if she has a more typical belly button, but it seems that those efforts have stopped.
According to the model’s rep, Kurkova has had an unusual belly button since she was a child.
“She had an operation when she was an infant,” the representative said. “It’s a fact and just thank God she’s healthy.”
