0 453

Lupita Nyong’o is upset over Grazia magazine’s decision to retouch and edit out her natural hairstyle.

The actress graced the cover of the British fashion publication’s November 2017 issue, where she appears with a shaved head.

According to a set of images shared by Lupita on Instagram, her hair was actually styled in a loose afro ponytail for the photo shoot.

Nyong’o expressed her disappointment, on Thursday stating, “As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too.”

E! News has reached out to Grazia for comment. They have not addressed Lupita’s message publicly.
