2013 was undoubtedly the year of Lupita Nyong’o, but don’t count out the Kenyan-Mexican actress for 2014. The breakout star has had the realm of entertainment on lock since she won over the hearts of the Academy with her supporting actress role in 12 Years A Slave, which propelled the Yale graduate onto the radars of Hollywood, making the starlet a bonafide “it” girl, plus the slayage she dished during red carpet season was enough of a reason for us to affix the title “it” girl to her name.
As of late, Nyong’o has been fairly quiet on the film side of things, but she’s conquered the fashion and beauty world inking deals with Lancome and Miu Miu and even being named “The Most Beautiful Woman” by People and “Woman of the Year” by Glamour . Sounds like Ms. Nyong’o’s reign is far from over, if you ask us.
