There are certain magazines' in the world that celebrities would die to be on the cover of, and one such magazine is Cosmopolitan.
South African media starlet, Thando Thabethe is currently gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine. Her cover received quite a number of thumbs up, especially from fellow celebrities, however there is another side of the coin that deems this cover as a serious let down - the overuse of Photoshop on Thando's skin.

I love Thando and congrats but she looks too dark and is she the cover star or is the titles?— Cairo Saint (@CairoSaint) October 22, 2018
did she become darkskin overnight or?— #ZintleHive (@zintleramano) October 22, 2018
We are having a hard time with this one, but surely there is a perfect explanation for this.
This debate reminds of Lerato Kganyago's 2016 True Love magazine cover which had readers of the magazine and followers of the media personality express their anger and disappointment at the amount of photoshop that was done on her featured cover.
The uproar about the True Love cover was so hectic even the EFF got involved.
What are your thoughts about Thando Thabethe's latest cover?
