Amandla Stenberg Gives Kylie Jenner a Lesson on Cultural Appropriation

When hashtags like the #KylieJennerLipChallenge have teenagers all over the Internet bruising their lips to get the surgically-enhanced pout of the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, one starts to worry about the future of our youth.

Forum members were keen to see the result of the shoot and couldn’t wait to kick off a discussion. “Gorgeous, and nice breezy feel of the cover, love that she has bare feet on the cover. She has been on quite a few of their covers,” noted Miss Dalloway, who had clearly fallen for InStyle‘s August offering.

“I love seeing ‘Gaby’… Reminds me how I miss Desperate Housewives. Plus it’s a nice cover,” reminisced an appreciative Srdjan, sharing the same sentiments.

Also full of praise was MON: “I like it! Very refreshing and the fact that she doesn’t have shoes on makes it look relaxed.”

“I love the cover, very laid back and effortless,” echoed fluxxx.

GlamorousBoy raved, “Oh, Eva, I missed you!” suggesting he can’t wait to rush out and buy the issue.
