not lupita

2

I was always confident, but I shed my tears. They told me I was too dark for TV. But I came to accept myself. And a lot of that had to do with Alek Wek, the way she was embraced by the modeling industry. Oprah telling her how beautiful she was. I was like, “What is going on here?” It was very powerful. Something in my subconscious shifted. That’s why this conversation is so important—because it burns possibility into people’s minds.

okay but zendaya, lupita, and rihanna ALWAYS put in legit effort to match the theme at every met gala they attend and their looks are always innovative and different.. like last year rihanna’s dress was like 50 feet long and lupita’s hair was really one of a kind and it was inspired by an infamous black icon.. all the girls pull so many one-of-a-kind looks, really pushing the line between art and fashion. AND YET every fucking magazine or news article or youtube celeb news shitshow can seem to only talk about what the kardashians are wearing?? despite the fact that literally every year they wear some glittery, sheer and tight fitting dress LITERALLY ! EVERY ! YEAR ! ITS NOTHING DIFFERENT AND IT NEVER FITS THE THEME BITCH IM T I R E D
