The issue, which names the most beautiful people in Hollywood every year in a special edition, had the Oscar-award winning actress win another prize, and that’s for being super stunning.
Nyong’o has been enjoying so much success, but being named “most beautiful” will definitely come as a shock to her, seeing that she famously admitted to once hating her skin colour and wishing she was light-skinned.
Back in March, Lupita gave a moving speech at the Essence Magazine’s annual Black Women in Hollywood event, where she said: “I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful.”
“I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin and my one prayer to God the miracle worker is that I would wake up light skinned … I tried to negotiate with God, I told him I would stop stealing sugar cubes at night if he gave me what I wanted.”
Lupita is one stunning woman — she rocks the short hair ‘do, her skin complexion is on another level and she knows how to dress herself appropriately to the point where it always looks elegant on her body.
With all of this being said, it’s only a matter of time before certain individuals will spread negativity on how disappointed they are that people such as Jennifer Lawrence, weren’t given the title.
But let us know in the comments below if Lupita deserved it? We certainly think so.
