Lupita Nyong'o is named People's Most Beautiful!
Breaking beauty news:Lupita Nyong'o tops yet another list! People magazine has chosen Lupita as their Most Beautiful Person of 2014.
A woman who has inspired us in countless ways, we're so excited to see Lupita chosen for the cover of the Most Beautiful issue. She rocketed to Hollywood superstardom so recently (a "late bloomer" some might say, at 31) and has consistently made a point to show others, primarily young women, that dreams aren't just worth chasing, but possible.
See Lupita tell her backstory in an exclusive interview with VOGUE.
After her breathtaking role in "12 Years a Slave," she has graced every major red carpet, won an Academy Award and been named a spokesperson for Lancome. All in all, a great year... but now she adds one more honor to her long-running list.
She told the magazine that she's "excited for this honor in part because of 'all the girls who would see me ... and feel a little more seen.'"
The Oscar winner is absolutely radiant on the cover, which was revealed this morning on NBC's "TodayShow" by Jess Cagle, editorial director for People. Cagle said that this year, there was really no contest. "She's obviously talented, obviously beautiful, she is incredibly stylish, but the way she carries herself with such grace and such humility, I think it's what put her over the top."
Other celebrities that have made this year's list include Keri Russell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Pink and Mindy Kaling.
