Vogue Magazine accused of altering the skin tone of model Adwoa Aboah

British Vogue has come under ‘fire’ for allegedly making its new mixed-race cover star Adwoa Aboah ‘appear more light-skinned’.

The first edition of the magazine under its first black editor Edward Enninful features a close-up of Ghanaian-British model in bright blue eye-shadow and a headscarf.

But critics say the model's distinctive freckles were only slightly visible and her skin looks much paler than it does naturally.

The magazine’s editor, Edward Enninful, carried a shoot of Aboah wearing unusually heavy make-up with her distinctive freckles only slightly visible and looking a good deal paler than she has appeared on other magazine covers.

The 25-year old supermodel appeared in Vogue Magazine in 2017.

Adwoa Aboah appeared on the cover of American Vogue with top model like Liu Wen, Ashley Graham, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Imaan Hammam, and Vittoria Ceretti.
