When Le Uk Magazine Occidentalise Les Nyongo’s hair…
After noticing that her Afro hair was removed from photos of the photo shoot she performed for Grazia UK, Lupita spoke on her instagram account:
“As I have made it very clear on many occasions in the past […], I am proud of my origins and this, even though I grew up thinking that clear skin and smooth and silky hair were the beauty standards to which I Had to identify me. I am now aware that my black skin and mes hair are also beautiful.
Appearing on the cover of a magazine makes me happy because it is a real opportunity for me to show people who have crépus hair, and especially the children they are beautiful as they are.
I am disappointed that grazia uk has appealed to me to appear on their cover and then modify and lisser my hair so that it matches their design of hair beauty.”
