Mexican born (yes Mexico) Lupita Nyong’o, has all eyes on her. Although Nyong’o was born in Mexico, she was raised in Kenya and graduated from the Yale School of Drama. It was upon her graduation from the esteemed program that Nyong’o was scooped up to star in “12 Years a Slave.”
If being a talented actress wasn’t enough Nyong’o is also strikingly beautiful, fashionably and humble. With skin to die for, phenomenal acting abilities and fashion sense that’s Anna Wintour approved, Nyong’o has her well deserved place on this cover with the greats.
