Lupita Nyong'o Named Most Beautiful Person of 2014

Kenyan-born actress Lupita Nyong'o is People magazine's Most Beautiful Person for 2014 . Speaking on the prestigious honour, Lupita stated, "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".

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong'o first equated beauty with what she saw on television: "Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair," she says. "Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess." Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, "always said I was beautiful," Nyong'o adds. "And I finally believed her at some point."

    Is she Kenyan-born or born in Mexico?

    I have never understood this fair/white is (the only) beautiful thing. It's actually an epidemic. Crazy! And I'm very dark skinned, but always been resolute in my belief of my own gorgeousness. How did I miss being bitten by this "fair/white is the only beautiful" bug?
