Gabourey Sidibe was one of four young actresses to appear on four separate covers of Elle magazine's 25th anniversary issue. However, several media outlets accused Elle of digitally lightening her skin.

According to Elle, 'nothing out of the ordinary was done' to the cover images.

"We have four separate covers this month and Gabby's cover was not retouched any more or less than the others. We had 25 cover-worthy subjects in our portfolio and we chose Gabby because of who she is. We shot this as a story of exuberant young women changing the world. If you take a look at the portfolio, each of the women were shot in different ways and for different reasons."
