26 Times Lupita Nyong'o Was a Perfect Human Being

Feb 27 2015 - 12:15pm

Lupita Nyong'o has definitely had an awesome couple of years — going from an almost complete unknown [1] to becoming an Oscar winner and People magazine's most beautiful person of the year [2] in the span of less than 10 months. We're certainly glad that Lupita is still having her moment, 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 [3]). 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 [4] and winning over A-listers at events. Keep scrolling to see our favorite Lupita moments in honor of her 32nd birthday!
