Vanity Fair accused of lightening Lupita Nyong’o’s skin in photo shoot
Lupita Nyong’o is quickly rising to fame. With a Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Award and Oscar nomination under her belt for her performance in 12 Years A Slave, it’s pretty easy to understand why.
But folks aren’t too thrilled with the actress’ latest Vanity Fair photo shoot.
On Wednesday, Vanity Fair proudly announced that the 30-year-old Kenyan beauty was the subject of the Vanities section of its February issue by tweeting out a photo from the editorial. And while Lupita looks lovely in the image — per usual — some folks were quick to point out that the star’s flawless chocolate skin looked lightened in the image.
@deluxvivens did vanity fair seriously lighten lupita’s picture? really? did this happen?
It’s obvious that something was done to Lupita’s photo. But can we say that it was deliberate skin-lightening or a simple matter of lighting?
