It's been almost two years since the Star Wars: The Force Awakens starlet last graced the glossy's pages, but it seems this time we're getting a whole new look at the actress.

Her metallic bronze look is way more muted than how she's usually styled, but she shines regardless!

Even the one peek we have at her spread inside the magazine is just as amazing.

The 32-year-old is styled in a striped, sequined shift designed to be an attention-grabber — but for her interview, Lupita talks about what it's like to have all that attention.

Reminiscing about her instant fame, she confessed:

Lupita Nyong'o covers Rhapsody magazine.

Good thing she never has to be an assistant again!

While looking gorgeous on the cover of Rhapsody magazine (only available first class on United flights), Lupita Nyong'o remembers the shenanigans she got into while she was a production assistant about a decade ago.

As Ralph Fiennes' helper on the set of The Constant Gardener in 2005, the Kenyan-born star's idle chitchat was sometimes irksome:

"Ralph is a very still man on set. It would be very quiet, and that made me uncomfortable. I'd try to make chitchat, asking, 'What's your favorite film? Of all the films you've been in, which have you enjoyed the most?' He was so polite, and he responded to me. At one point, though, he just said, 'Lupita, give me my space.'"

Now that she's almost always on set as one of the stars herself, the 32-year-old finds the need for space as well:

What do you think of these bold dresses?

Nothing says "making a statement" like donning a bold pattern down the red carpet! But the question is, what kind of statement do you want to make?

At Glamour's Women Of The Year Awards on Monday, Ellie Goulding and Reese Witherspoon dared to be different amid a sea of red looks, and opted for interesting ensembles on the red carpet!

The singer made her mark on the evening with a white-and-silver number that shined bright and beautifully! The garment hung off her fit frame in such a flattering way, and flaunted the perfect amount of leg! The On My Mind artist paired the dress with black stilettos that really tied the look together!

Reese, however, seemed to miss the mark. The blonde beauty donned a floral sheath that unfortunately failed to impress. Between the blue, white, and black color scheme and the dark, lace neckline this piece seems more fitting for someone, well, older.

And these Hollywood hotties weren't the only famous faces to make an impression on the carpet! Ch-ch-check out some of the other notable looks from the night (above)!

But what do U think, Perezcious readers? SOUND OFF in the comments!
