Gabourey Sidibe, star of Precious, is gracing the cover of Elle Magazine's October issue, however the publication is now being accused of lightening her skin color for the photo.
For the current issue celebrating the magazine's 25th anniversary, four actresses including Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried and Lauren Conrad, all received their own Elle cover.
Elle Magazine, who claims "nothing out of the ordinary" has been done to Sidibe's cover image, released the following statement:
- "We have four separate covers this month and Gabby's cover was not retouched any more or less than the others."
Makes you wonder.
Do you think Elle Magazine intentionally lightened Gabourey's skin color?
