TMZ GOSSIP – A photo shoot with singer-actress Zendaya for a fashion magazine has become yet another flashpoint in the debate over whether retouched photos create unrealistic perceptions of beauty.
In an Instagram post, the 19-year-old said Tuesday that she was “shocked” to discover her hips and torso had been slimmed in photos taken for the November issue of Modeliste.
“These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have,” said Zendaya, who posted the before-and-after photos side by side. “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.”
