Lupita Nyong'o through her beauty and (even more importantly) how she's used it and talked about it, has made dark-skinned girls and young women feel better about themselves. I'm pleased to hear that Lupita is people's magazine most beautiful person alive..
Tears running down my cheeks - so happy for her. Just saw her interview w savannah and she is as beautiful inside as out. Great choice People
But it's the Kenyan Mexican actress' reaction to the new honor that captures her the most. "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," Nyong'o told People after learning she's gracing this year's cover. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."
