L'Oréal Have Made Beyoncé WHITE - Critics Claim - Row Extends to South African Model
Now South African model Terry Pheto has been "whitened" by L'Oréal, it has been claimed.
COSMETICS giant L’Oréal Paris has denied claims that promotional photographs of its newest brand ambassador, Tsotsi actress Terry Pheto, pale in comparison to the 27-year-old’s natural skin tone.
L’Oreal denies lightening Beyonce’s skin
Pheto told The Times she believed L’Oréal had not doctored the photographs, following similar questions over singer Beyoncé Knowles’ complexion in a recent international L’Oréal hair product advertisement.
“I don’t think that they [L’Oréal] have done anything to the photographs that I wouldn’t approve of,” Pheto said.
L’Oréal last week denied whitewashing Knowles’ complexion in a Feria hair highlighting product advert.
It has been revealed that L'Oréal cosmetics giants have LIGHTENED the skin tones of one of its most prominent advertisement model Béyonce, media watchers claim. L'Oréal deny the claim.
However, L'Oreal are strenuously denying they had altered her skin tone despite outrage in US papers over the Elle magazine ad.
The New York Post labelled the ad "shocking" and accused the company of making the singer look like a "weird, nearly white version of herself".
A spokesman for L'Oreal said: "Beyonce Knowles has been a spokesperson for the L'Oreal Paris brand since 2001. We highly value our relationship with Ms. Knowles.”
He continued: “It is categorically untrue that L'Oreal Paris altered Ms. Knowles' features or skin-tone in the campaign for Feria hair colour.”
