Many stars turn to Photoshop to slim down their curves, but not Zendaya.

The 19-year-old knows she should be promoting a positive body image to her young fans – which means taking a stand against excessive editing of her images.

After photos from her recent Modeliste cover shoot were published on the magazine's site yesterday, the singer noticed that one picture in particular showed a drastically slimmed-down version of her hips and thighs.

She took to Instagram to address the issue and show fans the "real" her, but not before ensuring the offending image had been removed from Modeliste's site.

"Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated," Zendaya wrote on Instagram this morning. 

In the retouched photo seen on the left, both of Zendaya's thighs have been airbrushed down, and her waist size has also been noticeably decreased.

"These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have," the young star continued.

"Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love.

"So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it. Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue."

This isn't the first time Zendaya has spoken out in favour of natural beauty, of course.

Back in February, she took to Twitter to slam the Fashion Police hosts for mocking her red-carpet dreadlocks – a scandal which led Kelly Osbourne to quit the show and Giuliana Rancic to issue a public apology.

The moral of the story? Don't mess with Zendaya.



Most women are a tad bit scared of sporting a dark lip (we have uncontrollable fears of looking like the Joker), but as these celebs prove, there's nothing to be worried about and it's just as easy to rock as our fail-proof nude lip. 

Creating a dark lip is actually really easy:

  • Make sure your lips are well moisturised
  • Then use a primer to completely cover your lips
  • Outline the outer parts, concentrating on the cupid's bow and around the corners
  • Then choose your fave dark lip colour and apply carefully (we don't want any smudges!)
  • Set the look with some make-up setting spray

But if that isn't enough to convince you, the celebrities are on hand. From Kylie to Zendaya, these five stars have the dark lip trend nailed down:

Zendaya Coleman


Sarah Hyland


AnnaLynne McCord




Kylie Jenner




If you love a strong-brow look (and yes, pretty much everyone does), then you're probably already coveting the incredible arches of one Zendaya. 

Yes, the singer and actress might just about have the most perfect eyebrows we've ever seen (sorry, Cara).

She usually pairs her statement brows with a complementing cat-eye and a soft nude or rose-hued lip.

However, whether she's dressed up or dressed down, those on fleek brow are still very much there present and correct. 

So now the only question is… how do we too get our hands on Zendaya's brows?

OK, so the 19-year-old was definitely given a major helping hand genetically, but certainly the LA-native is giving us all-sorts of browspiration. 

Here, SHEmazing! examines the five best products for fabulouso eyebrows. 


1) Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo: Priced at €20.20, this product is fab for filling in gaps and inconsistencies. 



2) Benefit Speed Brow: Set in lightning-quick time and gives a gorgeous, natural finish that Zendaya would be proud of.

4) MAC Brow Set: Another quick 'n' easy product, this is perfect for a sleek look and ramains a stable of bloggers and makeup artists. Priced at €18.

5) Ottie Natural Drawing Auto Pencil: A steal at just €7.50, this flat pencil can twist and turn to do just about anything. 



Giuliana Rancic will say goodbye to E! News after a decade at the helm, she confirmed today.

The TV personality this morning confirmed that she would be finishing up as anchor on the well-known entertainment news show on August 10th, but that she would still return as a co-host of Fashion Police this autumn. She will also continue to work with E! for one-off red carpet events like the Oscars and the Golden Globes.

"For more than a decade, I was fortunate enough to play a role in the success of E! News and will miss my family at the show,” Giuliana said in a statement. "At the same time, I am excited to not only continue as host of two major franchises on E! but also… take my wine and clothing lines to the next level."

The host described this new stage in her life as "such a thrilling time" and thanked the team at E! for allowing her to move on to the "next chapter."

Giuliana's shock announcement comes just five months after she sparked controversy on air by poking fun at singer Zendaya's dreadlocks during a Fashion Police Oscars special. The presenter said she thought Zendaya probably smelled of "weed" and "patchouli," something which did not go down well with viewers and was later heavily criticised in an open letter by Zendaya herself.

The comments, which many said were racist and cruel, led to weeks of drama which eventually saw Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin quitting the show and Giuliana making a public televised apology.

Giuliana also took a lot of flack for her thin frame during this year's awards season, with many saying she looked "sick" and "skeletal" on the red carpet. The host later revealed that her low weight was not a personal choice but was the effect of the cancer-suppressing medication she has been taking since a diagnosis in 2012.

"I look in the mirror and it's hard for me," she confessed to People magazine in May. "I am really thin. I want to look fit and beautiful and sexy, and I can't." 

We'll definitely be tuning in to E! on August 10th… that's going to be one sad goodbye.



Kelly Osbourne may have quit Fashion Police, but that doesn't mean the feuding is over.

The English presenter exited the show last month, just days after her co-host Giuliana Rancic was accused of making racist comments on air about singer Zendaya, who wore dreadlocks on the Oscars red carpet.

Kelly was also implicated in the scandal, but she strongly denied having any part in it and soon after made the decision to quit.

Earlier this week she took to Twitter to make her feelings known, writing, "Liars ALWAYS get caught!", a less-than-subtle message which many believe to be a public dig at Giuliana. 


The tweet came just hours after Giuliana spoke out on the TODAY show about the scandal, saying it was all down to bad editing. "I think it's time to just tell the truth," the E! host said. "I find racism reprehensible. I don't tolerate it at all. Nor have I ever."

Giuliana, who joked with her Fashion Police co-hosts that Zendaya must smell like "patchouli oil… or weed", said that she never intended to cause offence. "I thought the joke was not edited in the proper way. That's just something I have to live with," she said. "It's very important for me to get out there and tell the real story."

The 40-year-old's refusal to take responsibility for her actions has seriously annoyed Kelly, according to one insider. "Kelly cannot understand why Giuliana keeps talking about editing when there was a whole audience and crew who heard and saw otherwise," the source told Us Weekly. "Kelly thinks Giuliana should have just been truthful, apologized, and moved on."

Looks like this catfight isn't going to die down any time soon!


It's been almost two weeks since Kelly Osbourne's shock departure from E!'s Fashion Police was confirmed, and she has finally broken her silence.

Kelly has remained relatively quiet on social media since her initial rant threatening to quit back on February 24th, after an episode of Fashion Police was aired which showed Giuliana Rancic mocking singer Zendaya's choice to wear dreadlocks on the Oscars red carpet.

Kelly was initially accused of making fun of Zendaya too, but she vehemently denied this was the case:

The former reality star finally broke her silence on her dramatic exit from the show yesterday during an appearance on The Talk with her mum Sharon.

Like a true professional, Kelly was careful not to burn her bridges, and spoke highly of her time on the show. "You know what, it was the five best working years of my life,” Kelly said when asked how she feels since quitting the show. “I am so grateful for the experience… working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible. I learned so much… and I’m excited for my future now. I want to try new things.”

30-year-old Kelly has spoken numerous times about how hard she took the news of Joan RIvers' death back in September. Speaking on her Facebook page shortly after the comedienne died during a routine surgery, Kelly said, "Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the grandmother I ever knew… She was family and I will never forget her."



Following Kelly Osbourne's shock departure from hit E! show Fashion Police, it has now emerged that her friend Zendaya urged her friend to reconsider her decision.

30-year-old Kelly felt compelled to leave the fashion show after her colleague Giuliana Rancic made ill-advised comments about Zendaya's hair on the red carpet, but it seems that Kelly's friend thinks she needs to forgive and forget.

Sources close to the star have opened up about the controversy, saying; "Zendaya told Kelly that she shouldn’t quit Fashion Police because of the race argument. She said that now that an apology was made, everybody should move on and try and forgive and forget."

Kelly known for her outspoken attitude didn't agree and felt that she had no choice but to quit the show, with an insider revealing: "Kelly finds it difficult to forgive people. [She] felt she needed to make a stand – because of her own beliefs – and went through with resigning from her post."

According to reports, Kelly felt she couldn't work alongside Giuliana following the controversy and thought it best to move on.

While Zendaya was apparently moved by her friend's loyalty, she was concerned that her friend may regret her decision, with a source revealing: "Zendaya was touched by Kelly’s motives, but she didn’t want her friend to give up a job she loves. But Kelly felt she had no option."

We don't think we've heard the last of this one!



It looks like this Fashion Police controversy is not going to die down anytime soon.

After a special Academy Awards episode of the show was broadcast on Monday night, host Giuliana Rancic was forced to apologise for some badly thought-out comments about actress Zendaya's dreadlocks – but she's not the only one feeling the pressure to say sorry. 

During the show, Giuliana said, "I feel like she smells like patchouli oil," when discussing Zendaya's choice to have dreadlocks on the red carpet. 

Another host then added, "Or weed!", and Giuliana laughingly agreed.

However Giuliana's co-host Kelly Osbourne has also been receiving a huge amount of criticism online, as many viewers believe it was she who firstly mentioned that Zendaya's hair must smell like weed. As the camera was not on the hosts when the comment was made, it is hard to tell who was speaking, and despite the backlash Kelly insists it was not her.

The 30-year-old went on an epic Twitter rant last night, saying she was contractually not allowed to say anything but that she would quit the show if her name was not cleared soon.


After initially posting an apology on Twitter yesterday, Giuliana has since recorded a televised apology too, during which she says it was never her intention to offend anyone:

So if Kelly didn't say it… who did?!



E! host Giuliana Rancic has ben forced to make a public apology for offensive comments she made on air about actress and singer Zendaya.

Giuliana was speaking during the Fashion Police Oscars special when she made some seriously badly thought out remarks about Zendaya's choice of hairstyle for the evening.

Speaking about the actress' new dreadlocks, the presenter said, "I feel like she smells like patchouli oil."

"Or weed," Kelly Osbourne added, with Giuliana agreeing, "Yeah maybe weed," as her co-hosts laughed.

Many viewers were outraged at the comments, describing them as racist, hateful and offensive:

Zendaya herself also took to social media to post an open letter about the hurtful remarks. "There is a fine line between what is funny and what is disprespectful," she wrote, adding, "My wearing my hair in locs [dreadlocks] on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough."

Well said!

Giuiliana herself responded on Twitter this morning, saying, "Dear @Zendaya, I'm sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!"

We're glad to see Giuliana apologising, but we hope it teaches her to watch her words next time.
