Lupita does not have "European" features


What she does have is features that are commonly considered attractive to most ethnic groups around the world (smaller upturned nose, high cheekbones, straight white teeth, feminine eyes, no lines in face)

That's not what I'm saying but I understand where sexibeach is coming from with her post. I would not say "Caucasian" features because lots of different groups/races can have those features. But I was silently thinking that it might be part of her appeal with white Hollywood, coupled with the contrast of her skin. It is what it is. Lauren Hill has always been my beauty ideal. But I haven't seen her celebrated like this.

This is killing me TBH.  It is very insulting that Lupita is getting this type of praise "despite" the fact that she's dark-skinned with kinky hair.  Nobody says so but that's what this is.  The whole thing stinks to me.  Why can't they just let her be quietly great.  She is beautiful and sweet and I wish this was more about her skills and personality.  Its what always happens before they destroy something.  This is what 'be careful what you ask for' means.  We want the world to embrace our beauty but at the same time I wish they would leave us the fck alone.

White people fetish with Lupita is directly related to the guilt they feel about her association as a reminder of slavery.    This is their version of atonement.   If she was in a movie like Sex in the City they would talk about her for 10 minutes and move on.  Its emotional healing.

For us we're just happy to see her winning.

I hope she can stay grounded and not let any of this get to her.  She is being such a great role model for little black girls (on purpose) and I absolutely adore her for that.  I don't want her to be an example to those same little girls of how the world eventually fcks them over.

I don't get the hype....
I think she has nice skin, great bone structure, and a nice smile.

Let's see what movie roles she gets next, they can't do another slavery movie, The Mandela movie is done, They already did The Help and its not a sequel. No being shady but I see some independent films in her future with a bunch  A list party invites.

Designers will send her clothes, magazines will put her on the cover and guys will try and date her and for some reason I think they will be white. 

Like the other poster said, she is safe no poverty striken back story to tell, Hollywood loves that. She isnt anyones baby momma and so far its nothing to hide. the idea is see you all can do better Confused in their eyes.

Absolutely agree Kfoxx

If they talk about how much they like her, they don't have to talk much about why she is there to talk in the first place


White people obviously need to have honest discussions amongst themselves about their history in the world and I don't mean their "accomplishments". They might have less "guilt" (shame) if they spoke more about it and condemned it openly

You don't know that. I noticed that a small portion of hair in the front of her head has grown but I figure that she,s just trying to switch things up. For all you know, she may have pressed that part. In any case, it wouldn't make sense for her to dramatically alter the look that has made her into a fashion icon in the first place. I think she signed with Miu Miu to be in their ads.
