Kerry Washington is not here for unrecognisable photoshopped self on the cover of ADWEEK Magazine… Here’s what she had to say about it

Kerry Washington is unrecognisable on the cover of the latest issue of ADWEEK and I had to share it with the Tribe. Let’s not pretend to be strangers to seeing AWFUL photoshop jobs of some of our fav celebs appearing in magazines. Frankly, normally my disappointment is directed at the lightning and brighting of women of colour that goes on during editing, but in this case, the subject in question doesn’t even recognise herself. Washington describes how she was ‘taken aback’ when she saw the cover for the first time. She details further ‘it felt strange to look at a picture of myself that is so different from what I look like when I look in the mirror. It’s an unfortunate feeling.’

Not one to keep hush hush and in true Oliva Pope style she took to social media to do some damage control. Read in full what Kerry Washionton had to say about the unfortunate cover in question and more pictures on the next page.

    We all do a little filtering nowadays but I don’t think it should ever change you to an entirely different person! Moreover the editing does not even make her look “prettier”, (if that is what they were trying to achieve) so what was the point of that? Kerry Washington has handled the situation with grace and finesse, More grease to her elbows!

    • Yes, exactly! What I don’t get is who cleared the final edits? I kind of assumed that celebrities get a look at the final cover before it goes to print, I guess not.
