Zendaya is featured on the cover of the November 2015 issue of Modeliste magazine and apparently they took things a step too far with their Photoshopping of the starlet.
She shared the above before and after pictures on her official Instagram account and politely called the magazine out for their retouching of the original photo. Firstly, let us say that Zendaya’s 19-year-old body is already thin, but they really did a hack job on her. It makes normal girls who are already small like Zendaya feel inadequate when compared to the false sense of beauty created when people get ‘Shopped to bits.
The magazine took it upon themselves to erase her hips, change the color of her skin and wreck her skin tone completely on her legs (they’re two different colors in the Photoshopped version).
Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue.
Kudos to her for handling this matter with tact and grace.
