Zandaya just made a uhuge statement against Photoshop by calling out a magazine that had slimmed down her hips.
The model slammed Modeliste Magazine on Instagram after the publication gave her photoshoot one too many touch-ups. And let’s just say, the former Disney star was NOT happy.
Posting the retouched image next to the un-retouched one, the 19-year-old voiced her concerns over just how far the industry takes its image-altering.

‘Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated’, Zendaya wrote. ‘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.’
She continued: ‘Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue. ‘
And she’s not the only one jumping on the anti-Photoshop trend.
Lucky Mecklenburgh recently made a similar stand by posting her un-retouched picture on Instagram after being accused of having her photos edited.
‘I’m sick of people saying that the photos I post have loads of editing and photoshopping… This is a photo I took from the photographers screen on the day of the shoot and the one that went in not the exact image but u get the idea!’ she wrote.
‘I don’t believe in making an image super airbrushed and unrealistic. I’m proud of the body I have worked hard for!’
And the same goes for Demi Lovato, who laid it all bare for an unretouched and make-up-free photo shoot with Vanity Fair earlier this month.
The 23-year-old raven-haired beauty was shot by the famous photographer Patrick Ecclesine at a hotel in Manhattan. And the rules for this impromptu shoot were simple: ‘No makeup, no clothes, no retouching.’
Keep up the good work, ladies.
