POPSUGAR Celebrity

All the Times Lupita Nyong'o Was Basically Perfect

Apr 23 2014 - 4:33pm

Lupita Nyong'o is having an awesome year — going from an almost complete unknown to becoming an Oscar winner and People magazine's most beautiful person of the year [1] in the space of less than 10 months. We're certainly glad that Lupita is having a moment right now, because she has quickly become one of our favorite celebrities to watch and not just because of her incredible acting talent and gorgeous sense of style [2]. The actress has lots of cute moments on the red carpet with costars and fellow actors (and, of course, Oprah), and she's equally adorable when she's playing around on her must-follow Instagram account [3] and winning over A-listers at events. Keep scrolling to see our favorite Lupita moments, from her photobombs to her goofy antics with fellow nominee Jennifer Lawrence.
