The girl can't help it!

Lupita Nyong'o continued being her flawless self in Paris this week.

Thank goodness she was plucked from obscurity to appear in 12 Years A Slave, because we don't know what we would've done if we'd never known she existed!

We would've been sad without ever really knowing the reason why.

So, let us thank the Yale theater gods for the gift of Lupita!

Anyway, the actress goofed around and looked super cute for the camera while grabbing dinner at a Parisian restaurant.

Terry Richardson and Jared Leto were also there, only furthering the playful talk of their potential love!

Check out more photos, including one with Miuccia Prada, in the gallery (below)!

Before she became a style icon and rose to fame winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong'o was just like any other actor in school…

Except it was Yale's FRIGGIN' School of Drama Class of 2012, people!

We were able to dig up some fab stage photos of Lupita in drag, a lovely gown, and more from various productions put on by the iconic Ivy League institution.

Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing gallery (below) in all its flashback glory, and see if you can recognize her first roles…ever!

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersSXSW

WHOA! He sounds JUST like him!!

The first clip of Andre 3000 as Jimi Hendrix in the biopic All Is By My Side has emerged and it looks AH-MAZE!

The Outkast singer could not have been a more perfect choice for the role!

The clip shows Jimi flirting with Linda Keith, played by Imogen Poots, who was once a girlfriend of Keith Richards and was the inspiration for songs from both men!

The film comes from 12 Years A Slave screenwriter (& Oscar winner) John Ridley, who wrote AND directed it!

This clip has surfaced ahead of its SXSW screening, but we're sooooo happy it did!

We can't wait to see the full thing!

It's that post-Oscar glow, baby!

Only three days after winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years A Slave, Lupita Nyong'o is already in Paris sitting front-row at the Miu Miu A/W 2014 presentation.

And she's meeting the one and only freaking Rihanna!!

THIS. IS. EPIC.

But Rih, in her incredible ensem, wasn't the only star to share in Lupita's radiance. The actress looked adorably proper in a collared shirt worn with a burgundy coat and crinkled pink skirt from the brand, and she was also joined by Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bella Heathcote, all of whom proceeded to take selfies with the award-winner.

Lucky!!!

What a fabby few months it's been for Lupita, and we have a feeling it's only going to get better and better!
