Actress Teyonah Parris attends Kari Feinstein’s Style Lounge presented by Paragon at Andaz West Hollywood on August 22, 2014
I find her so stunning. Love this whole look
damn she’s gorgeous
They ugly up Black women for our roles so that someone’ll still look at those dough-faced White woman they want to parade as beautiful.
^^ That’s why I thought for the longest that Viola Davis was older than she was.
I have found this to be consistently true for 99% of movies made by Hollywood. To the point that i was always so shocked when i saw pictures of the actresses outside of their roles for the longest time until i was wise to the game. But the reverse is usually what i experience when it comes to white women who they glamorize up 99% of the time.
And honestly, the fact that it is something they intentionally do to the point where there is a noticeable pattern angers me.
If i want to see black women looking like real people or glamorized up, i have to watch what mainstream has dubbed as a “black movie” or she has to be lead and is intended to be found attractive by white males.
