Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Elle Cover: Was The Indian Movie Star's Skin Lightened?

Elle India is in hot water for allegedly digitally lightening the skin of their current cover girl, actress and beauty queen ­Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. On the cover, Bachchan is photographed in a lavish gold gown with a sleek updo hairstyle, but her skin tone steals the show as it appears many shades lighter than in candid photos and production stills from her Bollywood films.
