Gabby's Skin Lightened for Fashion Mag Cover?
Gabourey Sidibey
Look at the pictures yourself, and you decide!
Elle Magazine has released statement that there was no more retouching of Oscar nominated actress Gabourey Sidibey's cover pic than any other cover pics they feature.
I don't know . . . things that make you go . . . hmmm!
At the same time, I do think it's great that Elle is featuring Gabby, who became an overnight success after making her acting debut in the movie, Precious, which also starred Monique.
And do keep in mind, funny things can happen to a person's complexion when you consider photo lighting and makeup.
Okay, so I don't know how I feel about it. What say you?

I think it is a combo of lighter makeup, lighting, and a little photographic touch up - no biggie.

Of course they touch her up a bit, but I do think it's the light and make-up. Professional photos with the right lighting does brighten the skin tone along with make up.

I don't see anything about her natural skin color that needed to be changed. Her skin is clear and she looks beautiful. This is not a good message to send to our children. African Americans come in all shades and each and every one of them are beautiful! They should be ashamed...the difference in much too drastic.
