Vanity Fair Accused of Lightening Lupita Nyong'o's Skin [Photos]


Vanity Fair has been accused of lightening 12 Years A Slave star Lupita Nyong’o’s skin in its latest issue.

Dressed in a gorgeous feathery white strapless gown surrounded by white balloons, the 30-year-old Kenyan actress, who is up for an Academy Award, features in the magazine’s Vanities section for February.


But after Vanity Fair tweeted a sneak peek of the editorial yesterday afternoon, many were quick to point out that Lupita’s dark skin looks noticeably lighter.


What do you think?  Did Vanity Fair lighten her skin, or is it just harsh lighting?
