Yeah, that would be great, but only, bearing in mind that you don't ruin your present

Unfortunately the two photos above are the only images of Lupita. Aside from a few notable black celebrities like Sheryl Lee Ralph, Vanessa Williams (the dark skinned one) and Fashion Editor-at-large Mikki Taylor, the book is filled with everyday dark skinned women like teachers, hair dressers, clinical psychologists and more.

Here's a snapshot that made me chuckle. I'm sure a large majority of dark skinned women have heard this line. Her response is the best:


my own snap.

I do wish there was more Lupita though!

Lupita attended the Mass Conference for Women on 4.12.2014.

Does anyone know the designer she's wearing?

Love what she's wearing and she really looks radiant. Love her hair like that and her skin will always fascinate me.

My niece attended the conference in Mass., she was determined to meet Lupita and Mrs. Clinton. Her dress is gorgeous, I swear Lupita can wear any color, she looks lovely.
