I just prefer european/euroasian facial features(probably like you).

I am fine with the idea of different standards of beauty for different people. I think women can be attractive in different ways. The things I'd find attractive in a white woman don't have to be present for a black woman to be attractive.

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?!?!

I guess I should also allow for the possibility that they just picked her to stir up controversy and sell magazines. In fact that's probably more likely... but then again, who's going to speak out against it. Nobody's brave enough. It'll still catch attention though.

She won an Oscar and has been Hollywood's "It" girl since 12 Years a Slave came out. It's not a political point or controversy. Ask any woman out there if they find Lupita gorgeous and 9 out of 10 of them will probably fall over themselves proclaiming her grace and beauty. She's simply incredibly popular right now and People Magazine took advantage of it to sell issues.

I bet it makes them feel nice and warm inside to say it, too.

I guess I'll just be the guy saying the empress has no clothes.

To oldtimers like me, feminism = dykes

The gal looks like a dyke, ergo feminism is involved.

NB: The above is crude satire, please continue

Pics of that would sure go a long way toward settling this particular debate!

I looked her up and learned that she's a Kenyan, so I actually kind of feel bad about posting that now since many of the things I criticized her for are fairly common for east African women. Maybe I'm a racist for holding her up against west Africans. Oh well.

I have not even clicked the link to see her picture so have absolutely zero to say on her beauty or lack thereof but I will say a sure fire sign that a woman is NOT gorgeous is for a majority of other women to say she is. Real knockouts are never overwhelmingly dubbed so by the vast majority of women. Will women all agree someone is pretty but in a non-sexual, non-threatening way? Sure thing. Let a woman be really gorgeous though and the claws come out.

Of course she's "disabled."
