Goodbye Gwyeth Paltrow, People Magazine has officially crowned Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'O as 2014's Most Beautiful Woman In The World and not too many people would disagree!
Lupita Nyong'O Crowned 2014's Most Beautiful Woman In The World
Should we say we saw this coming? Oscars, SAG, Golden Globes, BAFTAS, Top fashion magazine covers and so on...
The actress immediately took to Twitter to express her happiness:
"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."
Lupita took home the Oscar this year for Best Female Supporting Actress for her role in Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave. During her acceptance speech she moved the crowed and offered inspiration to any young woman who aspires to go where she has gone in her career.
"When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me, and every little child that no matter where you are from your dreams are valid."
Also of note is her famous skin colour speech at this year's Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon where she confessed how 'she prayed for God to change her skin color to white every night before going to bed'.
Well, we are guessing girlfriend needs no skin-color-prayer-change right now because "she's beautiful just the way she is."
