ut she’s not entirely happy about it. On Tuesday night, she lambasted modeliste, an independent print and digital fashion magazine, for slimming down her legs and torso. “Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated,” she commented on instagram, sharing the retouched and unretouched images side by side. “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.”
The editors at Modeliste were quick on their feet and swiftly pulled down the retouched images, though. “Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue,” Zendaya added to the original Instagram post later.
