i think it's sad that people are compelled to compare her to other dark women, like there's a dark women affirmative action sub-category of beauty..Dead

I was thinking she looks like Omar Epps with swollen fish lips. But Femme was feeling herself so I wasn't going to say it. But my 2 +Naomi Campbell easily slays this boyish chick. I'm done. This is some Alek Wek sh*t all over again

While I agree with your point, I think that comparing her to other dark-skinned women automatically erases the complexion, LS/DS bias. Afro's preference of Danai being the easiest one, being that he shows that he appreciates dark-skinned, bald women, but prefers Danai overall look. If someone were to compare her to Amber Rose and overall people prefer Amber then the easiest conclusion to draw is that people prefer Amber because she is--well--whatever she is that is not dark.
 
It might be more politically correct than anything else but I may be wrong.
 
ETA: But I think that overall the comparisons need to end altogether. I know I sound very "We Are the World" but that's just the space I am in. Black women, Black people, have such diverse beauty and it's rather tragic to see us so underrepresented, marginalized and unappreciated within media, even within our own media. Ultimately she's not a model, she's an actress, and I hope that she continues onto great success and continues to show another facet of black beauty.

And I LIVE for Lupita's look. I met her in France a few years ago and she is even more stunning in person.
 
I always appreciate a woman who doesn't need a whole bunch of extras to slay.
