ELLE Cover Lightens The Most Beautiful Woman in the World
Leave it to ELLE Magazine to photochop the world’s most beautiful woman. Aishwarya Rai, the reigning queen of Indian cinema, model and classically trained dancer is currently on the cover of ELLE India—several shades lighter. Rai’s skin has been lightened and her dark brown hair appears to have a red tint to it.
The Times of India reported the former Miss World is “furious with the bleaching botch-up” and is considering taking legal action against ELLE.
This isn’t the first time Elle has done this. Seriously, what the hell. Do they not think anyone will notice? This makes my blood boil because it just reinforces the idea that anything that isn’t white isn’t beautiful. I’m actually too angry and sad to write anything other than expletives at this moment, but I really hope that I don’t have to explain why this is wrong on so many levels.
She should take legal action, and stir things up a bit.
