As for the controversy part-
Fans have said that elle is being racist by portraying ash 2 shades lighter and whiter than she is. Honestly, fashion shoots are creative avenues and i dont understand the big deal. I am the first person to stand out against the whole fairness hype-i would rather bein the skin im in right now than be a pale ghost , but the shoot was obviously trying to channel the whole porcelain doll look of the Victorian Era – complete with flouncy layered Gowns by Rohit Bal. The same way you can argue thats not her natural hair- its coloured so you are not depicting the true colour of her hair either…Its a stupid controversy if you ask me, its the photoshoot directors creative liberty.
