The cover star of this November’s Modeliste magazine is Zendaya.
She participated in a photo shoot and interview as part of her cover story.
Zendaya’s hips and waist were slimmed down significantly with photoshop, totally unnecessary. She posted on her Instagram both the original and the retouched photos.
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.
Thanks to Zendaya’s reaction the problem was resolved. She is encouraging us to celebrate our own beauty and stick up for our body.
Zendaya, you trully deserve a never ending round of applause.
