Lupita Nyong’o Is People Mag’s Most Beautiful Person. Duh.

People Magazine has unveiled its ’50 Most Beautiful People’ issue, and the cover star who lands the No. 1 spot is the absolutely stunning Lupita Nyong’o! From her Oscar win to landing a big contract with Lancôme Paris, it is definitely the year of Lupita.

While Lupita is for sure one of the most beautiful people on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that makes us really swoon for her. The energy this young actress exudes is so refreshing, and she always seems filled with so much love and gratitude.

We have been so inspired by her honesty and courage this past year to speak so openly about her past, and issues she cares deeply about.

When speaking about beauty, she revealed, “I hope that my presence on your screen and my face in magazines may lead you, young girls, on a beautiful journey. That you will feel validation of your external beauty, but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside.”

She recently attended the GLAAD Awards to honor the LGBT community and express her support to the fight for equality. She stated, “I wanted to be here tonight to stand in solidarity with the LGBT community.”

What an incredible woman she is! We are dying to see what she does next.
