Jennifer Aniston is raising concerns over her appearance on the cover of InStyle's Beauty Issue due to her darkened skin. She stars in the magazine's Sept. 4 edition in a series of shoots inspired by 1960s and 1970s models. One image, in which the actress wears a DKNY bra with a Lalaounis necklace around her neck, sparked backlash with some accusations of blackface.
"See? There WERE black people on Friends!" one Twitter user wrote. Another added, "Jennifer Aniston to play Toni Morrison. Scarlett will be busy playing Michelle Obama #blackface," while another user quipped, "Looks like Jen got 4 fours on her front."
Others defended the 50-year-old star, saying, "since when has being tanned become problematic smh."
A rep for InStyle told NBC News that the shot was inspired by Veruschka, a German model from the '60s, and other looks were inspired by Catherine Deneuve, Lauren Hutton, Brigitte Bardot and Charlotte Rampling. The magazine did not clarify if the dark skin was from Photoshop or tanning.
Aniston stars in Apple's upcoming drama The Morning Show alongside Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon.
