The Only Way Is Essex's Lucy Mecklenburgh, Sam Faiers and Jessica Wright have sparked a racism row after posing for Asian Woman magazine.
Despite the editor's decision to use the reality TV stars because they're "three so-very-now women into a completely new fashion style", people from Asian and non Asian communities have expressed their dislike at seeing the girls, who were styled in beautiful saris for the shoot, on the cover.
Posting their thoughts on a Facebook page that contains the cover image of the girls, one person wrote: "Not Asian at all… it’s being fake tanned brown asian”. However people's thoughts on the subject weren't just confined to Facebook after one user posted on Twitter:
"Well I just couldn't imagine the Asian community being appreciative of what #towie brings to the table".
Admist the negativity, the girls were complimented on the "stunning" and "gorge" pictures.
