Lupita Nyong’o continues to slay and get great news. The Oscar Winning actress was just named PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful and we have to say we totally agree with the publication’s choice this time around.
Lupita says the honor is great for little girls to see but she also says she’s thankful she learned to recognize her own beauty:
“Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair. Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, “always said I was beautiful,” Nyong’o adds. “And I finally believed her at some point.”
Check out her cover below:
Congrats to Lupita.
I love it. Congrats Lupita!
Eh, we really didn’t need People to tell us Lupita is beautiful. We already knew that. She looks gorgeous on the cover though.
Wow! A beautiful, black, woman with no cream running through her on the cover!!! Lord come for your world because the day I thought I would never see has finally arrived. Congrats to Queen Lupita!
Stunning! I love to see a beautiful black woman rocking her natural hair on the cover!
Her career is really taking off. Good for her.
I bet that hating a-s African singer is seething right now. She thinks she has to whiten her skin to be beautiful and here is Lupita being named People’s Most Beautiful with her beautiful dark skin and natural hair. Seethe you self hating bish!
