    Make una stop dis thing... THAT GIRL IS NOT FINE!!

    It is not about self hate BB... I know MANY MANY deep chocolate sisters that are simply stunning! STUNNING! But Alek is NOT one of them..

    Sometimes I get the feeling the white people select who we should considered "black beauties".... Would this girl be picked in Nigeria or Kenya or Cameroon as beautiful? Forget the colonial mentality. Genny is dark skinned. Stephanie is dark skinned... And those woman are actually stunning!

    Yes, too many times, we get hung up on complexion. But that can be over done both ways. Just because someone is light does not mean they are automatically fine. and just because a woman is dark does not mean I have to automatically say she is fine lest it not be considered "self hate"....

    Alek is not fine, in my opinion....

    BB it is not self hate ooo lol... she is very striking agreed and that is because of her complexion and stature, i only picked her out of the list and the rest of them are all black, so i dont think i am hating on the colour of her skin, i just dont find her beautiful for her to be above Genevieve e jus no make sense to me, thats all....is she an excellent muse for modelling? absolutely i think she is amazing as a model.... she is very statuesque. But as for the beauty part...i dont quite see it....in the same vein as i dont understand how Nicole Kidman is beautiful. :nature-sm

    Elisa, I'm trying to make sense of the highlighted statement: "Alek Wek is beautiful in her ugliness"?? What? Why would you consider her ugly? Because she is dark skinned? Because she has full lips? Because she is the opposite of the light-skinned epitome of beauty that most Africans cconsider beauty? Please pray tell and clarify. Why will you consider her "ugly"? She is a reflection of the looks and aesthetics of the part of Africa she hails from. Are you saying they are ugly too??

    And NO! One CAN'T be beautiful in their ugliness. IMO that makes no sense.

    Either you consider ugly or you don't.

    Sid, its cool if you don't think she is fine in your opinion! Totally cool.

    But for someone to say she is "beautiful in her ugliness" is what just doesn't make any sense. Like how do you cast her as ugly and then call her beautiful in her "ugliness"??

    I am glad you do appreciate dark-skinned beauty and I do understand we all have our different perspectives of beauty. Example, I do agree that Stephanie is pretty but I don't think she's gorgeous even with all the makeup in the world. That's my opinion though, so different strokes.

    For me, true beauty is that which emanates with or without make up. And yes bros, those crucifying her and tagging her with the term "ugly" are those who ARE hung up on the colonial complexion mentality: light skin it is or no deal. I have heard folks who critique Alex's looks and their main points of criticism are her lips, nose, darkness of skin e.t.c. And I wondered when it became a crime for an African to have full lips and dark skin?? Africans and blacks constitute mostly of these critics, which in my opinion is really sad!

    I'm glad you at least don't categorize her as ugly even though you think she is not fine.

    And must I add that it is amazing to me the huge amount of African women who are putting themselves at the risk of skin cancer by using cheap lightening creams to achieve the "light skin" mark they will never achieve. At the end of the day, you end up with scalded, burnt, smelly skin and looking worse than ever.

    Images of black women like Alek is what the world needs and NOT skin-lightened, photo-shopped women, who still don't measure up with their caucasian counterparts in the world of beauty.

    My two cents!

    LOL! I thought it was a funny statement... :D

    My brother your claims are not fair. Just because someone considers her ugly does not mean it is specifically because of her skin color. And yes, if someone's lips are too big, that's a problem! So if Alek was light skinned and someone mentioned her lips being too big, would we complain?

    If your claim is true then people would say the same about Genny or Stephanie or Joke Silva or Susan Peters.... But you don't hear them say the same thing. Those women are dark skinned with full lips... Why do we like them and not Alek?

    There are many, many, many dark skinned full lipped women that are adored. This girl borders on ugly to me. She does. We roast Nollywood star here that are waaaaaayyyyyy better looking than this girl...

    My brother, it is not about bleaching.... Yes that is a problem.. But just because that it a problem doesn't mean that we need to say every dark skinned woman is beautiful... It is simply not the case... Some can be dark skinned and ugly... Yes.. Just the same way a light skinned woman can be ugly as well... But then no-one is accused of hating the light skin...

    If someone mentioned Jenny or Stephanie and said they weren't fine because they are dark, then I would agree with you... But Alek is not pretty at all to me. At all.... She could be purple.... Well then again, I like purple.... :cool-smil

    LOL! I thought it was just me oh! :D

    Ok, agreed that my generalization of people's perception of Alek's aesthetics is a bit broad but in my experience those that have attacked her looks have always used her lips,dark skin tone as solid basis of their critique! And bros I beg to differ that there are "many many" dark skinned women with full lips that are adored! Those women that you listed above, are they presented to the world in all their true glory-I mean "their true darkness" or are they coated in makeup and make ups/ studio lightening so that their their dark skin is presented in a way that is acceptable to the world?

    Brother dearest, ugly she is NEVER! But I am cool with someone else thinking she is not 'stunning". However, on that note I will choose her anyday over an Agbani Darego. Genevieve and Steph Okereke when it comes to beauty that is unforgetable.

    Honourable, I am not commenting on her Skin Colour as a matter of fact, I love her dark skin. Her face is not pretty at all. I think she has beautiful eyes and lips her gorgeous (and I'm not gay to say that). There are other dark skin girls like her from sudan. I think that Atong is pretty. When I put people in the category of pretty, I will not venture to add Alek's name on that list. Light skinned peoeple are not all beautiful, case in point, Tiny, (TI's chick) and Tisha Campbell from Martin.

    Ok Elisa, your post here has clarified a lot. I just got really boggled with you saying that she is "beautiful in her ugliness"... I didn't quite know what you meant by that statement and YES her dark skin is luxurious! Love it!
