Kenyan Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, 31, has been named the world’s most beautiful person for 2014 by People magazine.

She said she “never dreamed” she would be praised for her looks and find herself on the US weekly’s cover.

Nyong’o shot to fame in the film 12 Years a Slave, winning the Oscar for best supporting actress last month.

She subsequently won her first major endorsement when she became the new face of French cosmetics giant Lancome.

Nyong’o said it was “exciting and a major, major compliment” to be on the cover of People.

“I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen,” she is quoted by the magazine as saying.

She received an Academy Award this year in the category of Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Patsey in the Steve McQueen-directed film.

  1. Beauty is relative, and I guess it lies in the hands of the beholder. Sebabi’s wife categorically confessed that her man is the most amazingly good looking person in the world

  2. The scene in the movie where he strips her before whipping her got me somewhat turgid. Which master would not want a pubescent slave like that?
    Yea, she’s the fifth most beautiful girl in the world, after my wife, daughters and mother! Go Loopy!!! Represent sisi yote!!

  3. Your last Statement has answered fully your question, Lupita is very admired as a beauty because of her skin color, her figure proportionally well formed, her teeth look very natural and the hair which makes so much of the beauty, rarely you will see her carrying a wing or pieces of artificial hairs on her skull, her conduct as a kenyan is not what we see from other kenyan friends we know of, so what do you Need more? They are not considering the taste of what she has in her cloths mind you. Her names are so African even after living so much outside Kenya.

  4. Lets not get so excited because she looks like most of us in Africa, we have seen so many beauties with the same color but because of Racism we have been hiden from the media and from such titles, here my guess is commercial as soon as Lupita sized her Image in the News after the Oscar movie even the selfie, it would be the best strategy of every business man to make his Magazine get more famous again with such a woman on his cover. Yes that is trade or commerce it has to work. Anyway congs you are more used than the title itself my dear Lupita

  5. Yes and she also came out as being supportive of LGBT gay rights and people’s rights to their human sexuality, unlike red pepper which sells people down the river.

  6. To my thought Beauty lies in da hands of the beholder there 4 to me she is not the worlds most beautiful my girlfriend is the best lllllloooooooooolllllllll
