_Zendaya Looks Stunning On The Red Carpet At The BET Awards

Zendaya is never afraid to speak her mind, so when a photoshoot she did was released and showed signs of obvious retouching on the 19 year-old actress’s already slim, hips and torso, she spoke up against the unrealistic beauty standards that the industry hold women to.

In a side-by-side photo of the original and photoshopped version, Zendaya called out Modeliste Magazine which printed her looking slimmer and more tan. The mag has taken down the photos since, but you can find the them in the gallery.

Zendaya said,

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.”
