Jennifer Aniston's Dark Skin Tone on Magazine Cover Prompts Criticism of InStyle

Jennifer Aniston appears on a handful of covers for InStyle magazine's October issue but one photo in particular has drawn criticism, NBC News reported. 

The cover in question was one of five that InStyle posted to Instagram on Wednesday featuring Aniston, billed as a “babe eternal,” to promote the magazine's beauty issue.

"Jennifer Aniston has been a beacon of American glamour for the past 25 years, and now she’s stretching her boundaries," the Instagram caption read. "In a series of five newsstand covers (just try to choose a favorite), she channels iconic beauty looks from the ‘60s and ‘70s."

In the image — in which Aniston is wearing a black DKNY bra, a Lalaounis necklace and Elizabeth Locke, John Hardy and Reinstein Ross bracelets — the actress, who discussed with the magazine how it felt to turn 50 earlier this year, looked airbrushed and dark, many social media users were quick to note.

Neither Aniston nor InStyle immediately returned requests for comment Thursday.
