People magazine has bestowed one of its highest honors on Lupita Nyong’o - “Most Beautiful person for 2014.” This year’s most beautiful cover issue is the 25th annual for People magazine. The first honor went to actress Michelle Pfeiffer in 1990, and last year’s most beautiful person was Gwyneth Paltrow.

"The first person to tell me I was beautiful was definitely my mother, she said that a lot. Especially when I felt the least bit beautiful. My mother always said I was really beautiful and I finally believed her at some point." [x]

I’ll actually buy this issue. Lupita tops People Magazine’s 50 most beautiful people. And rightfully so. I mean just look at her, he smile, her personality, her presence, her skin…just everything.

Lupita Nyong’o - People’s Magazine
YEEEEES!


She may have won an Oscar for her role as the slave Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave and recently landed a contract with Lancome Paris, but Lupita Nyong’o “never dreamed” she would be touted as “Most Beautiful” for all the world to see. 

“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.” 
As a teen, Nyong’o dyed her hair every color – except blonde – and even went as far as shaving her head bald. “It was very strange and very cold!” she says, laughing. “It was scary but I like to dare myself.” 

Now she says the best compliments are “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” she adds. “And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.”

Drunken Policeman Fired 20 Shots, Brutalized Food Seller Talks About Close Shave With Death

One of the two victims of a brutal attack by a drunken mobile police officer recounts her experience. Tafa Mohammed, the police officer at the center of the controversy, was caught on camera assaulting two women at Obalende in Lagos.

Funmilayo Adebayo, the victim who was beaten, dragged, and then dipped into putrid muddy water, told SaharaTV that she is slowly recovering from her wounds. But, she has now been warned by her medical doctors not to lift heavy objects due to the internal injuries she suffered from the beating.
