ms natural beauty

First of, let me just say that these ladies are beautiful. Stunners ♥

But. Here is where Essence magazine fucked up. Why is Gabrielle Union (2nd one in from the right) the same colour as all the other ladies? All of the other ladies are of a lighter skin tone to Gabrielle, but why did the magazine feel the need to lighten her face as well? Ms Union doesn’t look right. The Gabrielle Union that I know was the beautiful dark skinned woman in Two can play that game, or the young captain of the Clovers Cheerleading squad in Bring It On. When are these big magazines going to stop making our celebrities look airbrushed and lightened??? Ms Union is naturally beautiful as a darker skinned woman but she lookd awful here. essence sort it out please.

Signed a dark skinned girl and proud.
