Zendaya is doing her part to fight body shaming after she discovered a magazine manipulated her hips and torso in retouched photos. The teenage star took to social media on Tuesday night to express her displeasure with issue.
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.
In the original image, Zendaya’s thighs and hips are wider than they appear in the retouched snaps. Her skin also appears less saturated in the original image.
