OSCAR-winner Lupita Nyong’o has been named the most beautiful person of the year by the acclaimed American celebrity magazine People. With the recognition, Lupita joins a cast of Hollywood’s hotshots such as Julia Roberts, Cindy Crawford, Tom Cruise and Beyonce, all who have headed the list before.
All through the 2013/2014 awards season, the 31-year-old film star has often been praised for being one of the most fashionable on the red carpet. She also signed a deal with cosmetics giant, Lancome, as its first black ambassador, and attracted a lot of top-notch fashion designers in America and Europe.
In February she gave a moving speech while accepting an award at the seventh edition of Black Women in Hollywood. She said: “I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin. I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin.”
Lupita told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie that she was moved by the People’s action of naming her the most beautiful. “I’m flattered, but flattered sounds like such a flighty word, you know? I’m flattered with, like, gravitas under it,” said Lupita.
