Instagram versus reality! Elle Macpherson’s natural freckles vanish

Elle Macpherson is one of the most beautiful women in the world. 

And on Tuesday, the Australian supermodel shared a series of images from her glamourous appearance at the Dior show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week the evening prior. 

The 58-year-old posed alongside her 24-year-old son Flynn at the prestigious event in photos posted to Instagram.

However, there appeared to be a marked difference between images of the beauty taken outside, and some of the images she shared from indoors. 

Elle’s natural freckles and frown lines appeared erased, her visage flawless and porcelain. 

Her appearance also differed in images taken by photographers on the evening, compared to those she posted herself.

The model could have used a beauty app like Facetune, which irons out the features for a perfect look, or an Instagram filter.

Alternatively, the differing lighting conditions could have simply been more flattering indoors. 

Elle, who was once dubbed ‘The Body’ thanks to her picture-perfect physique, left fans confused after she uploaded another image of herself that appeared to be doctored on Sunday.

The Instagram photo shows the mother-of-two posing in a luxurious hallway inside the Hôtel Plaza Athénée Paris. 

Clad in a long-sleeved black gown, Elle posed in a large gilded mirror with her back slightly turned. 

A closer look at the image suggests it may have been doctored, as a portion of the wall reflected inside the mirror appears to be warped.

While everything else in the mirror appeared normal, the small area behind Elle’s back and derrière appears to bend unnaturally towards the right –  a telltale sign that the image has been manipulated. 

The most common use of the liquify tool is to change a person’s shape, and in this case would have given Elle a slimmer, more curved waist. 

However – this ‘bending effect’ could simply be an optical illusion caused by a fault in the mirror’s surface.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Elle Macpherson for comment. 

Elle’s video was taken just moments before she made a glamorous appearance alongside Naomi Campbell and French filmmaker Farida Khelfa at Paris Fashion Week. 

 The trio, who are long-time friends, attended the Alaïa runway show, posing for an Instagram snap to commemorate the reunion.
