Lupita Nyong'o's star is rising quick, fast and in a hurry! The "12 Years A Slave" actress has already scored a Golden Globe nomination, Oscars nomination, a few magazine covers (see: this and that) and a major fashion campaign. But it's Lupita's most recent accolade that has some people jeering not cheering.
On Wednesday, Vanity Fair proudly announced that the 30-year-old Kenyan beauty was the subject of the Vanities section of its February issue by tweeting out a photo from the editorial.

And while Lupita looks lovely in the image -- per usual -- some folks were quick to point out that the star's flawless chocolate skin looked lightened in the image.

What do you think? Did Vanity Fair intentionally brighten Lupita's skin color or is this simply an issue of set lighting?
