Lupita Nyong’o is having the best year ever. Not only did she win an Oscar and become the new face of Lancôme, but People magazine just named her Most Beautiful Person of 2014.
The 31-year-old actress told the magazine, “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.”
Surprisingly it’s not being on the cover of the Most Beautiful issue that makes Lupita feel prettiest. Instead, she says she feels best “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on. And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.”
