However some section of  people have also jumped at  the defense of Vanity Fair, claiming the photos were merely retouched to add a “glow,” adding all editorial magazines Photoshop models and actresses no matter race or ethnicity.But is that reason enough to retouch?Well, will leave that to your judgement.Do you think these pics were whitewash anyway?
