Did Vanity Fair Lighten Lupita Nyong'o's Skin?

According to BET Centric, there's a stark contrast between Lupita Nyong'o's Dazed & Confused cover and her photos in the February issue of Vanity Fair. And folks aren't keeping quiet about it. 
The glossy recently revealed their feature on the Oscar-nominated actress, in which she chats about growing up in Kenya, attending Yale University and nabbing the role as Patsy in 12 Years a Slave. While an interesting piece, readers couldn't seem to get over Nyong'o's "light-bright" image that accompanied the article.  Journalist and MSNBC contributor Goldie Taylor pointed out the puzzling photo via Twitter and Instagram.  "Dear @VanityFair Why would you do this? #Lupida #subscriber," she wrote while posting the picture in question next to an image of Nyong'o at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards.  Others joined the conversation asking, "She’s a natural beauty...why did you have to lighten her up?" and "did vanity fair seriously lighten lupita's picture? really? did this happen?"  Of course this wouldn't be the first time a publication has been accused of lightening up a brown girl. In 2010, ELLE magazine found themselves in hot water with their cover of Precious star Gabourey Sidibe. Beyoncé, India.Arie, Rihanna and others have also been at the center of skin-lightening scandals-- could Nyong'o be the latest victim?

Sidebar: If they did lighten her skin, shame on them. She's beautiful just the way she is.
