Every magazine out there probably wants the Duchess of Cambridge as it's cover star, but it'd be virtually impossible for Kate to star on the cover of a glossy mag, so Marie Claire South Africa have decided to photoshop the Duchess onto its front cover.
The upcoming August issue shows 'Kate' posing on the front cover, but actually its a photoshopped image using the body of a model and Kate's head.

The model is wearing a South African ensemble by designer Cliver Rundle, and the magazine's editor Aspasia has reportedly said that it's a tribute to Kate's life as "a modern-day princess" that has inspired them to make her their cover girl.
"We were so inspired by her fairytale wedding and her life as a modern-day princess, which is why we elected Kate Middleton as our cover star for the August issue. The cover is actually a hyper-real illustration of Kate."
She also added: "We have honoured her with a fan-art tribute, dressing her up in clothes by South African designers and placing her in all sorts of fun, everyday situations."
Along with the 'image of Kate' on the cover, the headline reads: "Fashion's new royal icon wears SA's best local designers*", before adding in small print: "*Of course she doesn't. But she should."
What do you think of Kate's cover?
