Vanity Fair Accused of Lightening Actress Lupita Nyong’o ‘s Skin Color
January 17, 2014
Okay, so it’s ok for Lupita’s skin to be darkened (Dazed & Confused) but not OK to be lightened. You guys should give it a rest already. I think this whole thing has to do with the camera lighting. No one is trying to change anyone’s color.
Anyways, Vanity Fair announced Lupita Nyong’o as one of the faces photographed for the vanities section of its February issue yesterday and tweeted about it (from the pic above); fans went crazy with the editing and replied. See tweets below and the darkened picture from the Dazed & Confused cover shoot in-case you missed it.
