Pop singer Zendaya recently took to Instagram to complain about a photoshoot with Modeliste Magazine, where they photoshopped her hips to be about the same width as her skull. They also gave her a weirdly orange spray tan. She posted her own side-by-side comparison to give people a real look:

Obviously, Zendaya is beautiful without getting any of her curves shaved off digitally. Modeliste responded to her complaints with a very apologetic letter, writing:

Upon review of the final edited images which had been submitted to us by an independent editing company, together, as a collaboration between myself, Zendaya and her parents, we concluded that the images had been retouched to an extent that was not acceptable and not true to the values and ideals we represent and promote in our publication.  I, therefore, made the executive decision to immediately pull the issue in order to have this rectified and have the images restored to their original, natural state which will reflect the true beauty and radiance of Zendaya.

Here's one of those "original, natural" photos, side-by-side with the unnaturally orange retouched version:

They love the spray tan.

As you can see, the Zendaya on the left looks like a human woman with a stomach. The photoshopped one on the right has very smooth hair. If you can't spot the differences, US Magazine made a helpful gif for everybody:

The ocean also lost a few rocks.

So it's confirmed: Zendaya is beautiful.
