A magazine featuring the tallest model ever to be a cover girl hits shelves this week. “A US model measuring 205cm is set to feature on the cover of Australian men’s magazine Zoo Weekly. The model — Eve — appears on the cover of the magazine’s current issue alongside a 162cm-tall Australian model. ‘No other magazine has put a woman who’s nearly 7ft tall on the cover,’ editor Paul Merrill said. ‘We had … her bikini specially made, but it was worth it.’” The images show the smaller model (wearing stacked platforms) barely reaching up to Eve’s armpit. The images are like a perception test and it looks like one of the girls has simply been photo-shopped into the frame although the magazine insists the proportions are genuine.
