Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
The picture above of a noticeably lighter-skin Beyonce Knowles was taken on the 15th Feb on the occasion of former band member Kelly Rowland’s 30th birthday dinner. The Media and blogosphere have gone into a frenzy insinuating that Beyonce is bleaching her skin. This got me curious and while doing some research on Beyonce’s earlier pictures, I stumbled across hordes of pictures of celebrities whose original body image have been altered in the photographer’s studio lab. Check them out below:
More tanned skin
Now unto other celebrities
Why oh why? She looks as gorgeous without the tan
More tanned and Trimmer Waist and tummy
Fairer skin, trimmer waist and thighs.
Judging from these pictures, is Beyonce Bleaching her skin or is it a question of magazines and newspapers trying to promote which skin colour they ‘think’ is ‘beautiful?’
I think the lighting and possible flash from the Camera has a lot to do with the colour of her skin in all these pictures.
