Lupita Nyong’o named People’s ‘Most Beautiful’
Lupita Nyong’o’s breakout year just keeps getting better. The gorgeous Kenya-Mexican beauty has officially been dubbed People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” and is gracing the mag’s annual issue. Nyong’o, 31, spoke candidly with the publication about how her early views of beauty were influenced by television.

“When I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” said Nyong’o, adding, “and also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress.”
Celebs, including Gabrielle Union, congratulated the star on social media.
