This is so sweet!

Lupita Nyong'o has been vocal about growing up feeling less-than-beautiful (which is crazy ’cause she's STUNNING), and has cited supermodel Alek Wek as one of her beauty inspirations over the years.

Now, the two have finally met in real life and video cameras were there to document it! Hurray for meeting your heroes! Hurray for technology!

While we get to look at the photos, two of the luckiest photogs in the world, Patrick Demarchelier and Peter Lindbergh, actually got to shoot the girls and stare at them in real life!

What a life!

Watch the clip (above) to hear Lindbergh talk about this truly magical experience, and then check out some pantless BTS shots in the gallery (below)!

Philip Treacy Pays A Fascinating Tribute To The King Of Pop!

philip-treacy-ss-2013-london-fashion-week-show.jpg

After a 12 year hiatus, Philip Treacy returned to the London Fashion Week catwalks on Sunday!

The milliner's Michael Jackson meets Africa-inspired S/S 2013 collection was modeled by an all-black cast of models outfitted in some of the King of Pop's costumes and all we can say is it was a Thriller!

Mr. Treacy said of his fascinating collection:

"It was based on Africa getting rich. A future Africa and they just happen to be wearing Michael Jackson’s clothes. Jackson was exceptional — his talent, the dancing, the image, and I was touched to be able to work with his clothes. They were at my studio for a month before the show, and they were really freaking me out. I’d lift up a box, and there’d be a sparkly glove.”

Ha!

Speaking of sparkly gloves, that was hands down our favorite piece!

Besides the obvious tribute to Michael Jackson, Treacy also dedicated the show to his late friends Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen, with a gospel choir which brought tears to those seated in the front row.

Wow. Bravo, Philip!

The beauty knows what it means to truly really be hungry as she grew up in poverty in Southern Sudan.

Wek shares her past experiences in a new write-up for Newsweek where she talks about her difficult childhood before heading to London at the age of 14 as a refugee.
