Lupita Nyongo People Most Beautiful Mag Cover

 

This beautiful brown skinned woman is running laps around the Hollywood scene with her exquisite features and gorgeous smile.   Since Lupita Nyong’o has won her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, she’s graced the cover of a number of magazines, and they are all stunning!  In addition to her beauty there’s an A+ personality to match.  In a speech just after winning her Oscar, the actress had this to say,

“I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty. Black beauty. Dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: ‘Dear Lupita,’ it reads, ‘I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.’”

“I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin. I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin,”

“I hope that my presence on your screens and in the magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey. That you will feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside. There is no shade in that beauty.”
