The woman of the year Lupita Nyong'o is on the cover of People's magazines 50 Most Beautiful Issue, and I'm ecstatic. I'm not surprised she's on the cover because she definitely deserves it. She's the lady of the year, smart, beautiful a great charismatic personality. “This year’s process was as unanimous as I’ve ever seen it,” staff writer Julie Jordan told the Daily News Wednesday as the 25th Anniversary issue was unveiled.
I fall in love with her every time I see her because she looks like my family. She has dark chocolate skin, natural textured hair she can easily be my cousin. Seeing images of yourself tied to beauty, intelligence and praise, something black women rarely see, is a long time coming, but highly appreciated. "I was happy for l the girls who would see me and feel a little more seen."-Lypita Nyong'o
