It sure is Lupita Nyong'o's year to shine!
The first-time Oscar winner was crowned as this year's "Most Beautiful" by People magazine.
The mag announced who was awarded their prestigious honor Wednesday morning.
"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," Nyong'o said of gracing the cover. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on (it) and feel a little more seen."
The 31-year-old actress has certainly proved this past year that she is beautiful both inside and out. Lupita Nyong'o arrives at the Oscars on Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
Nyong'o received a ton of attention for her head-turning red carpet fashion and her incredibly moving speech after taking home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "12 Years a Slave."
The star, who was born in Mexico and brought up in Kenya, told People her early views of beauty were swayed by what she saw on television.

That’s a man,Bro...
... brought up in Kenya, hmmm ...
She’s very attractive but gets points off for hair.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder—or something like that.
Although ya gotta dig the Reagan ‘do.
LMAO, she won an oscar and most of the voters never saw the movie.
Strange times we live in.
In a world with “heartthrob” Justin Bieber, she should consider a different haircut to eliminate confusion. Very pretty though.
I think she’s beautiful and if Julia Roberts made the list, I don’t know why.
Well, she isn’t hideous. but walk down any beach in America and you will find dozens of women just as attractive.
The agenda at work here is so brazen, it would be stuning my Beiber were it not so common these days.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or the magazine that wants to score Politically Correct points.
Criticizing their choice is sure to be called ‘racist.’
RE: She is pretty, but the First lady (my wife) is prettier..
Wheeewww. I’m glad you qualified it with what you wrote in the parenthesis. Otherwise, I’d be barfing right now.... :)
Definitely. I think she's a smokin' hottie.
Out of respect. She pioneered the goose-anus lip fad.
I thought before posting, "we have new members every day," and didn't want to get bludgeoned.
I am absolutely certain that there is some unknown woman somewhere, not working in the entertainment industry, who is FAR more beautiful than any of the candidates considered.
I get tired of these hyper-superlative awards constantly being handed out to the same circle of narcissists. The worship of the useless is bad enough without these idiotic “awards”.
it’s ‘beerholder’. lol
Eh - She’s be a great poster child for the Marines.
I going to be blunt:
‘ain’t nothin’ tah judge!”
She is neither svelte nor zaftig, but ‘just there’.
Never heard of her and no, she is not.
Operative word being "circle".
Well, she’s not my type-—I’m a girl—lol!
Yup and most of your negro NFL goons would rather have her on their arm rather than the Sis’ta
Thats what I gathered... scoring PC points.
I guess Michelle Obama wasn’t available?
BTW she's much more preferable than that slob Miley Cyrus
By the way.....
I just looked up the domestic gross for “12 Years A Slave.”
It ranked 62 compared to all movies that came out in 2013.
That includes ALL the money it earned after months of pre-Oscar and post-Oscar hype.
I also find the premise of “12 Years” to be historically questionable.
In 1841, there were several hundred thousand Free Blacks living in the Old South.
There had to be an established and reliable system to verify that you were “Free.”
If not, then Southern Free Blacks would have been routinely kidnapped and re-sold into slavery.
No Free Black would have been stupid enough to live in the Old South if that was the case.
According to the movie, the hero lived in New York, was lured to Washington D.C., then kidnapped, then transported to Louisiana.
Why didn't the criminals just kidnap some Free Black living in Alabama?
For that matter, why not just kidnap other people's slaves and sell them at auction?
Historically, the plot makes no sense to me.
Absolutely. She’s not ugly by any means IMO. I just think the agenda is the sole reason she was even considered, much less awarded.
“attractive” is a relative term.
Like “that smells good” is an opinion, not a fact.
“that has an odor” is fact.
I think she is hot too. But I do not find her attractive. Unconsciously, our minds make us be attracted to mates that we consider acceptable candidates to produce our offspring.
“I think she is a pretty woman.” This is fact.
“She is pretty” That is my opinion.
I don’t think she is attractive. I am not attracted to women that have her features.
Well thats my lesson on wordplay today, thanks for listening.
I despise these stupid contests.
The most beautiful person in the world could be toiling away in a factory in China or working on a farm in Sweden. How would “People” know?
Ridiculous-—the magazine is pure trash.
You are correct.
“Most beautiful person” is a relative term anyway.
My wife has been going through chemotherapy, lost her hair, her extreme weight loss has her looking ill. So on first glance, anyone else might say she’s hideous.
But to me she is the most beautiful person in the world and will be until they put me in the ground.
I hope she keeps her sh*t together and doesnt let this go to her head. Just because Hollywood liberals have chosen her for their cause celebrity this week after acting in 12 years a slave (copy of miniseries Solomon Northrops Odyssey) She should talk to Terrance Howard or Barkhad Abdi. They will praise her and award her until a new pet comes along so they can point to how inclusive and above racism they are.
I think she’s beautiful ... not up to Catherine Zeta-Jones in her prime, but better looking than CZJ today, and miles above 40-ish white actresses whose plastic surgery didn’t go quite right (that includes you, Julia Roberts).
No problem. I have gotten into heated arguments myself with people who believe that 'attractive' means 'pretty' or 'beautiful'.
RE: I think shes beautiful ... not up to Catherine Zeta-Jones in her prime, but better looking than CZJ today, and miles above 40-ish white actresses whose plastic surgery didnt go quite righ
Well, this begs the question, will she look the same when she reaches *THAT* critical age?
She’s already in her 30s, so we’re not going to be comparing her at 45 to her at 19. Her skin is less susceptible to wrinkles and sun damage than a white woman’s.
Ultimately, what she looks like in old age will depend on what’s she’s like inside. An ugly inside starts to show no later than the late 40s, no matter how much makeup and surgery she has.
"I may not be a smart man, but I know what love is."--Forrest Gump.
And you have expressed it beautifully.
Well-said, sir, well-said indeed.
Prayers being offered for your wife, and you sir, are a good man.
She has a pretty face, but girls with GI buzzcuts just don’t do it for me.
And her two friends.
Affirmative Action queen?
