Lupita Nyong’o captured the attention and hearts of critics and fans for her performance in '12 Years a Slave'. She also wowed the fashion world with her consistently stunning red carpet looks. Now, the Academy Award winning actress can add another badge of adoration to her growing list. Lupita has been named People’s Most Beautiful Person for 2014. Her beauty, of course, isn’t just about her flawless looks. Since she’s arrived on the celebrity scene, Lupita has emerged as poised, thoughtful, and an inspirational force. Of receiving the honor from People magazine she said, "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." In her interview with the magazine she was very open about her own self image as she was growing up, revealing that beautiful was not something she considered herself to be. Her image of beauty, she said, had been formed by what she saw on television, and that meant light skin and flowing hair. Others honored in the issue include Mindy Kahling, Kerry Washington, and Pink.
