Vanity Fair’s “Fair-Skinned” Lupita Nyong’o

I’m not going to go into a big, long diatribe here. But, I saw this picture of the STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS Lupita Nyong’o on IG the other day and immediately thought, “What the heck is that about?!?!? Why does she look so light?” The idiotic thing about it is that they featured her in a white dress, surrounded by white balloons. It seems pretty obvious that she often wears white and bright primary colors, because the contrast against her lovely dark skin is BREATHTAKING.

Any questions?

I would assume that’s why they chose the white dress and balloons for the shoot. However, by lightening her skin, they watered down her beauty and the impact of this image. Stupid Vanity Fair. Stupid. And pathetic.

You can read more about the tweet from Vanity Fair and some of the resulting backlash in the Huffington Post article HERE.
