Lupita Nyong’o announced as People Magazine’s Most Beautiful star

Last year was a phenomenal time for relatively-unknown actress Lupita Nyong’o, starring in her first feature film, 12 Years A Slave.

But it looks like 2014 is going to trounce last year with, not only an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress under her belt, but the 31-year-old being given the title of People magazine’s Most Beautiful woman.

Speaking to the magazine about her incredible accolade, the actress explained when she grew up she thought the definition of beauty was ‘light skin and flowing, straight hair’.
