Elle Magazine Mistake: NeNe Leakes Fires Back Over Mistaken Identity

Elle Magazine Mistake: NeNe Leakes and actress Danai Gurira were caught in an avoidable mistake by Elle magazine. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Twitter to address the mistake.

According to blogger Necole Bitchie,

Reality star Nene Leakes and actress Tracee Ellis Ross shined on the red carpet last night as they attended Elle Magazine’s Women In Television celebration dinner held at the Soho House in West Hollywood.  For the occasion,  Nene opted for a body-hugging black dress accessorized with diamond jewelry, while Tracee Ellis Ross looked super cute and youthful in a flare dress with mesh shoulders and a high bun.

Meanwhile, before the night was over, Nene had to get Elle Magazine together real quick after they tweeted a photo of actress Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) and said it was Nene. See photo to the right:

@ The Elle Women in Television event! So funny how these event work! I’m glad I know who I Am

RT @unicornho: @ELLEmagazine: neneleakes looking gorgeous in @alexanderwang and hof_diamonds #ellewitv < Funny As Hell

@ELLEmagazine so funny how you guys invite us & don’t know us apart

One Twitter user stated,

“Wow highly disappointed! Its bad enough that black actresses and black women in general are almost invisible in Hollywood and fashion, now a major fashion publication cannot seem to tell them apart. A huge fail Elle! But with that I’ll ‘chuck’ one up to ‘Everyone makes mistakes’ – we all do”

After a few angry tweets from their followers, Elle later tweeted:

“Apologies–clearly someone on our team needs glasses! The fabulous Danai Gurira looking stunning as ever!”
