We have already seen Lupita Nyong’o steal the show as the best dressed at the 2014 Academy Award event as well win the Oscar for best supporting actress for “12 Years a Slave”. The 31-year-old achiever is also the face of Lancôme Paris. Today the lady is back in news as People magazine has honored her as the Most Beautiful person for 2014.
The Kenyan actress encapsulated the glory by stating, “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.” The Mexican-born beauty also added that “I’m flattered, but flattered sounds like such a flighty word, you know? I’m flattered with, like, gravitas under it.”
The lady has joined the league of the most beautiful people that includes last year’s winner Gwyneth Paltrow. While the listing started in 1990 with Michelle Pfeiffer, some of the most beautiful people who have graced the list include Beyonce, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry, Cindy Crawford and Tom Cruise.
