People Magazine has just released their 2014 Most Beautiful People issue and guess who is the glossy’s number 1 pick? None other than Oscar Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o!
While we cannot say that we did not see this coming, with Lupita Nyong’o’s beauty being practically worshiped in the media, we are glad that the Kenyan-born actress is being recognized by People Magazine.
On the magazine cover Lupita is seen with the simplest beauty look and the only jewelry she has on is a statement necklace. The 31-year-old actress was announced as the People Magazine’s choice this morning. Speaking on the prestigious honour, Lupita states “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”.
The 12 Years A Slave star is definitely deserving of the title as she has repeatedly shown how much of a style icon and beauty goddess she is one the red carpet. Over the past 7 months Lupita has not once disappointed with her fashion choices. Her Instagram updates have also shown us that with or without makeup, Lupita is truly beautiful.
Lupita is among only a handful of black woman who have landed at the top spot, sharing the honor with Halle Berry and Beyoncé.
