Did LUPITA NYONG’O Get the BEYONCÉ Treatment?

Famed actress, Lupita Nyong’o, known for her moving role in 12 Years a Slave, has been the center of a touchy subject.  She recently did a photo shoot with Vanity Fair and they are catching some heat because fans and readers believe that Lupita’s skin was lightened (hence the Beyoncé treatment).  There has always been a stigma when it comes to black skin.  Some act as if dark is not beautiful.  Is this the case with Vanity Fair or was it simply just the way her skin photographed with an all-white background?  Either way, she is beautiful, but I really hope and pray that this was not intentional because that would be just sad.
