“Disappointed that @GraziaUK edited out & smoothed my hair to fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like. #dtmh,” she wrote on Twitter on Thursday (November 9).

Grazia issued a statement on Twitter in response: “Grazia is committed to representing diversity throughout its pages and apologises unreservedly to Lupita Nyong’o. Grazia magazine would like to make it clear that at no point did they make any editorial request to the photographer for Lupita Nyong’o‘s hair to be altered on this week’s cover, nor did we alter it ourselves. But we apologise unreservedly for not upholding the highest of editorial standards in ensuring that we were aware of all alternations that had been made.”

    God, their bitching and moaning will never desist, will it?

    I feel that’s stretching it a bit. I mean there would be no fashion if they didn’t try to fit something in some standards…

  • MlleHarmonie

    as long as there are still people like you a around, it will never desist indeed.

  • MlleHarmonie

    you just don’t get it. Your feelings (white&male) do no matter here but hers of that of people that look like her. Representation is important.

  • mafragias

    I would be privileged white male, if i was straight, living somewhere, where there was a mixture of ethnic groups and mine was favored over others. On the other hand, are you really surprised they edited a photo in a fashion magazine? Plus, It’s just hair, many people have short hair and many people have long hair. I don’t see a race issue here. Sorry…

    Only on the PC western world is Lupita considered beautiful. She is nasty as can be. If Africa she would be covered up or be given skin bleach and a hair weave.

    Look at all those Guest accounts someone has created to upvote this comment.

    Pathetic and embarrassing.

  • AeeJay

    Ok, so Lupita likes her hair natural..good for her, wish more women of color would embrace that ideal. But she has no hair in the picture…????
    Lets be honest was it in her clause? Did she ask for her image not to be altered?
    You very well can’t sell your image like all models, actors do, & expect them to not alter your image to suit what they want to sell.

    the “eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like” is long straight hair & she is basically bald. so why are you brining in eurocentric ideal in this? they put a ponytail thats curly hair in there.. not some long straight flowwy wig.

    I think its just about having hair period.

  • mafragias

    How that happened? Just saw this. Plus i can’t see the reply i gave to MlleHarmonie.

  • Jamie

    I actually thought Grazia was a tabloid.

  • Sarri

    Someone with multiple Disqus accounts called Guest upvoted you, I don’t know why JJ got rid of your comments, maybe they thought all these Guest accounts are yours… looking at your comment again, it seems this person disliked your comment again.

  • cafeast
