L’Oreal Denies Lightening Beyonce’s Skin

Yesterday, we reported the controversy surrounding L’Oreal Paris’ latest Feria hair color ad featuring spokesperson Beyonce with lighter skin and a pointier nose. The ad, which is in the Sept. issues of Essence, Elle and Allure, created a stir among celebrity bloggers who definitely noticed a change in Beyonce’s appearance. As expected, L’Oreal Paris issued a statement denying any altering of her skin or features, but does not offer any explanation for the pretty obvious difference in her appearance. A representative for Beyonce said the entertainer would have no comment other than L’Oreal’s statement. Her tight lips on the subject don’t come as a shocker, though, because she very rarely comments on anything. [Newser]
