Fresh off of Barbie celebration mode, Zendaya has been forced to address yet another controversy that seems to always be the topic of discussion: her image.
After posing for the cover of Modeliste Magazine, the above image on the left was released to the public, but not before Zendaya could set the record straight, providing her own side-by-side photo, calling the magazine everything from unrealistic to manipulating.
“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.”-Zendaya Coleman
Either way, as always, Zendaya has brought the main issue to the forefront, highlighting the elephant in the room:
These are the things that make women self conscious,
that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have.
As always, #zendayawins.
