I don't think the one on the left is the same.

[quote=""DianeL""]Misfit, the one on the left actually looks a LOT like an Italian actress I remember from a couple sitcoms some years back. I don't think she's the same as the very Irish looking girl in the others, it's just a similar shot and effect.

The photoshop images are FASCINATING (and, yes, mostly very bad indeed). Argentina was eye-watering. Wow.[/quote]

Thanks all for the input. The more I look at the girl on the left, the more I agree with you. It helps to put them side by side, instead of different browser tabs ;)

Of course, it's now driving me nuts trying to remember what show it was I remember this actress from - it seems to me it was a 90s sitcom where the two main characters were supposed to fall in love, and at some point this GORGEOUS Italian woman comes between them, I have an idea the male lead might even have married her. Stupid, the things that live in my brain. :P

I am *such* a dork - it was Caroline in the City, and the actress was Sofia Milos. Okay, I feel better now. :p

[quote=""Misfit""]Lookee here. We've seen this pair a few times, but the one on the left is today's find. It looks almost identical to the center cover.

That hanging lock of hair is a real give away. Different gal, or did they photoshop out her corset?

Same here. He wouldn't be so easy to spot without it though.

I want to things that involve kilts and dancing. ;) :p

So one assumes his shirt is hanging off all but the ends of the sleeves as he reaches round to unfasten her dress?!
