Just when we thought the perfect Lupita Nyong'o couldn't possibly get any more perfect than she already is, she goes and does something perfect like this!!
The Oscar-winning actress recently made yet another trip to Sesame Street, where she got a chance to hang out with her good pal Elmo and teach him a thing or two about skin!
But while Lupita touched upon the basic stuff like how it
Lupita Nyong'o isn't just gorgeous on the outside - she's a beautiful person underneath too!
The 12 Years A Slave star attended the wedding of her hairstylist Ted Gibson and his partner Jason Backe on Wednesday, and it was a truly perfect day!
The small and elegant ceremony, held at Pier 46's Hudson River Park in New York City, inspired her to share her feelings with her Instagram followers. She wrote:
Everything about this cover is spectacular!
The pose, the dress, the smile!
Lupita Nyong'o works it in a gorgeous yellow dress on the cover of Elle France's latest issue, reminding us of Belle from Beauty and the Beast, except much cooler! No disrespect to Belle, of course.
We also have to give props to the styling team for putting Lupita in such a beautiful outfit AND the photography team for making such excellent use of the wind fan!
What brilliant teamwork!

Just use your charm, Lup!
Ha, there are people who have no problem with snakes whatsoever (AHem Jaden and Willow Smith, you snake cuddlers), and then there are people like Lupita Nyong'o.
Unfortunately for the in-demand actress, snakes are wild and exotic looking — thus making them PERFECT for high fashion photo shoots. You know, like for Vogue!
So when the magazine decided to hang a slithery black reptile around Lupita's neck during one of their shoots, the 31-year-old decided to conquer her fear of snakes once and for all… kind of!
Watch the video yourself (above) to see her HIGHlarious reaction!!
Then CLICK HERE to check out the cover she landed! Fashion goddess right here!
We've already established that Lupita Nyong'o is great at acting, dressing up for the red carpet, and doing an impromptu dance with Pharrell.
But did you know she's also a skilled hairstylist?!
When Vogue had the Oscar-winner on hand during their July cover shoot, they also got her to show off her talent at braiding hair! She works her magic on six of her friends in this video (below)!
Now we know why her hair at events is always so interesting!
Check out Lupita's braiding tutorial…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Lupita Nyong’o was first revealed as Lancôme’s spokeswoman just a couple months ago, but we finally get to see a peek at the campaign!
Who knew two months could feel like forever??
Thankfully, we had her stunning Vogue cover to tide us over! Though the first look at the beauty brand's ad is just as gorge as we imagined.
Giving her best smolder, Lupita is clearly taking her new gig seriously and we’re sure the Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation would thank her, if it could.
Especially with the smokey eyes and a beautiful raspberry pout giving her look for a flawless finish!

Finally! And, wow!!!
We had a feeling this would happen, and we couldn't be happier!
Lupita Nyong'o has landed her first Vogue cover for the magazine's July issue, and it's FLAWLESS!
The actress wears a vibrant Prada dress on the cover, which is perfect for the summer season. But the spread has even more splashes of color!
Lupita poses at a spa and bazaar in Marrakech, even facing a cobra head-on in one shot! Our favorite, though, is most likely the sensual image of the beauty in a tub filled with red roses.
The actress of course talks about fashion in her interview, admitting that she's always had a love for it. She even designed her own prom dress! She said:
