She's a Hollywood Trailblazer

As People's Most Beautiful Person for 2014, Lupita joins a list that includes only two other Black women. Halle Berry won in 2003 and Beyoncé in 2012. From a young age, we're told beauty takes many shapes and colors, but the entertainment industry still has room to improve in the diversity department. Even Lupita doubted her own beauty (which is just insane). "I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful," she said during the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon. "I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter skinned."
