Zendaya is very beautiful, very good at shutting down trolls, and very good at promoting body positivity as much as a stunningly gorgeous supermodel can. She is a singer, actress, model, star of the Disney Channel show K.C. Undercover and recipient of the racist comments that lead to the demise of Fashion Police.
She appears on the cover of Modeliste Magazine's November issue, because apparently Modeliste is a real magazine and not a joke from Zoolander.

She shared one of the pics from the magazine on Instagram this morning, a side-by-side comparison of the original and Photoshopped versions. Yes, Zendaya, who is so intimidatingly beautiful and is only 19 (NINETEEN!) was edited using image manipulation software. They not only shrunk her hips and thighs, but also made her skin look lighter.
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.
