This week at the Elle Women in Hollywood event, Kate Winslet made an admirable announcement. Though she’s already the face of Lancôme, her new ads will be free of retouching. She made sure of it through her contract with parent company L’Oréal, including a stipulation that they can’t make changes to her face in the photos.
“It does feel important to me, because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women,” Winslet said. “I think they do look to magazines. I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders. We’re all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me.”
Kate added she hopes other actresses follow suit to help portray more realistic female beauty to young woman. Bravo, Kate! Now who’s next?
