Lupita Nyong'o named People mag's most beautiful person
Lupita “We Heart Her So Much” Nyong’o has been named People magazine’s most beautiful person of 2014.
What a year it’s been for the 12 Years a Slave star, who won an Oscar for best supporting actress, signed a deal with Lancôme to become its first black representative and made our jaws drop every time she stepped foot on a red carpet.
The fashionista made headlines in February for giving a moving speech as she accepted the best breakthrough performance award at the seventh annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.
“I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful,” she said. “I put on the TV and only saw pale skin. I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin.”
About being selected for this year’s cover, the Mexican-born Kenyan said: “It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen.”
See why we heart her so much?
