Lupita Nyong'o Is People's Most Beautiful Woman!

Lupita Nyong'o continues her incredible year by landing the cover of People\'s most beautiful issue!

And this year's title goes to…

Lupita Nyong'o!!!

This is shaping up to be a banner year for the actress, and we’re sure this is only the beginning!

Following her major Oscar win and her first beauty contract with cosmetics giant Lancome, Queen Lupita can now claim the title of People magazine’s most beautiful woman in an issue filled with fellow beauties like Jennifer Lawrence, Amber Heard, Mindy Kaling, and Kerry Washington.

And she 100% deserves it — not only is she flawless on the outside, she also has an inspiring story!

The gorgeous actress voiced her joy at winning the coveted honor, saying:

"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."

However, Miz Nyong’o wasn’t always secure in her good looks.

Growing up, she perceived beauty as what she saw on TV, which consisted of:

"Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair. Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess."

It was only later in life that she began to accept that she was actually beautiful, thanks in part to her mother.

Her mom:

"…always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point."

Oh, mothers. What would we do without them, right??

Lupita also admitted to the mag that she appreciates compliments the most:

"…when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on. And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing."

We agree completely!

And we also agree with People’s excellent choice for this year’s honor!!

Get it, gurl!

    and let all the conditioned racists all come out. They will find valid reasons why they do not agree with this, but the truth is that for many racists they are unable to identify cognitive dissonance. They will castigate blacks who have made bias statements (most minorities aren't racist due to color), argue that if a black person said they don't think a white person is attractive no one would cry racism, and a ton of similar ridiculous color blind jargon. Seriously it is okay to be your true self. It unacceptable in society just as homosexuality is frown upon, but some of us accept gays. Just like there are homophobic ideology there is racist ideology. So please just be your natural selves, act according to your type; privileged, bias, racist, eugenics believer.

    There is no way she's ugly. She might not be to another person's taste, but no way ugly. Imo, she's gorgeous. She's one of those people who lights up from within and it shows.

    for the purpose of racial diversity she'll do. Jennifer Lawrence is the real IT girl, but I doubt she cares if this black girl gets some attention.

    And while you're all on here with your hate and racism. Calling her ugly because she doesn't have tons of weave and extensions in her head, or pounds of make up. She's still on the cover and making money. So continue pounding angrily on your keyboard, and being tough from behind your computer screen I'm sure most of you are dogfaced anyway.. Bye. -KissMyAss

    I just read on another site that People pulled out every trick to photograph this chick looking "lighter" then she actually is. notice the brilliant white background. she is much darker if you can believe it then what is photographed. pictures on another site show the difference. so lets say she has a healthy "sun-kissed" glow on the people cover. she doesn't look like a ghetto ho so I think that's good and that's the attraction.

    She is absolutely beautiful. She's different, and individual, and doesn't rely on other superficial materials to enhance her beauty, just her personality. same goes with Kerry & Jen.

    And in case you don't know how to read, its People's Most Beautiful Woman. People magazine chooses not you dumb ass people.

    If Jennifer Lopez made it to the cover… anyone can . All it takes is a Village… most likely from Home Depot and Photoshop.
