‘Extremely disappointed’

Emily Ratajkowski condemns magazine for altering photos of her on cover


Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski recently appeared in the French magazine Madame Figaro, and she was not particularly pleased with the final results of her photo shoot. As HuffPost reports, Ratajkowski took to Instagram to condemn the magazine for digitally altering her lips and breasts.

“Everyone is uniquely beautiful in their own ways,” Ratajkowski wrote in a post that showed before and after photos from the shoot. “We all have insecurities about the things that make us different from a typical ideal of beauty. I, like so many of us, try every day to work past those insecurities. I was extremely disappointed to see my lips and breasts altered in photoshop on this cover.”

“I hope the fashion industry will finally learn to stop trying to stifle the things that make us unique and instead begin to celebrate individuality,” she added.

Many celebrities have spoken out against aggressive photoshop practices in recent years. In a 2015 post, for instance, Zendaya called out Modeliste for digitally altering her hips and torso. “These are the things that make women self conscious,” she wrote, “that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have.” That same year, Cindy Crawford spoke out about fake “unretouched” photos that she said left her feeling “manipulated and conflicted.” And then there was the time that Lena Dunham falsely accused a magazine of Photoshopping her image that was used on the cover. She apologized after realizing that her own PR team had sent the magazine the Photoshopped image. But earlier this year, Dunham appeared on a magazine cover in a photo that was completely untouched — an occasion for which she thanked the editors.
