Emily Ratajkowski, who appears on a recent cover of Madame Figaro, has hit back at the French magazine for photoshopping her lips and breasts. The actress took to Instagram to share both the original photo and the retouched cover, telling followers she's "disappointed" to see her features have been altered.


Between the two photos, Emily's lips do appear smaller and her breasts higher in the retouched image. Click the arrows in the post below to take a look at the difference…

"Everyone is uniquely beautiful in their own ways," Emily wrote in the caption. "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."

It's not the first time a celebrity has called out a magazine for photoshopping their body. In November 2015, Zendaya shared side-by-side pictures from a Modisteshoot, showing how they'd reduced her hips and thighs.

"Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated," she wrote. "These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have."

Here's one more from Lorde in 2014.


Madame Figaro has not yet responded to Emily's Instagram post, and the retouched version of the cover still appears on the magazine's feed.
