Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o named "Most Beautiful Woman" by PEOPLE
Add another award to Lupita Nyong'o's long list of honors: She's been named the World's Most Beautiful Woman by PEOPLE Magazine.
Quite an honor for the 12 Years A Slave actress. Nyong'o, 31, grew up thinking that "light skin and flowing, straight hair" made women desirable, but it was her mother who "always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point."
This is clearly Lupita's year -- and it's so well deserved.
The Oscar winner is now the new face for Lancôme Paris and is honored because "all the girls who would see me … and feel a little more seen."
