My problem is that she isn't particularly attractive by any measure I can imagine. I doubt anyone really believes she's all that good looking. Instead, I think she's being used by this magazine to make a political point.
Why would they label some hottie who no one has ever heard of? That doesn't sell. Oscar winning shooting stars who have been impeccably styled, dressed, and spoken sells.
I doubt there's much in the way of political machinations behind this. Their agenda is to get people to buy and read their magazines.
Also, I usually prefer short or natural hair on black women vs weaves that most famous ones seem to gravitate toward. I think she looks great, if slightly too slender for my particular tastes. OH NOES! Did I buy into the feminist "real women" have curves mantra?!?!
