Elle mag in race row after ‘whitening’ Ash’s skin on its coverDecember 24th, 2010 - 12:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 24 (ANI): Fashion bible Elle magazine has been caught in a race row after reportedly whitening the skin of Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on its cover.
Readers reacted with anger after it was suggested that the fashion magazine might have digitally “bleached” the complexion of the former Miss World.
The 37-year-old, who has also starred in Bride & Prejudice and The Pink Panther 2, appears on the cover of this month’s Indian edition of the magazine.
However, her skin appears to be several shades lighter than her normal colour.
Inside the magazine, she is again pictured in a series of shots, all showing her with pale skin, reports the Daily Mail.
Fans have been posting angry comments online about the latest cover, with one saying: “It’s annoying because it seems like lighter skin is always in fashion as if darker skin is something to be frowned upon.” (ANI)
