As Lupita Nyong'o was named People's Most Beautiful woman, here are some of her most stunning moments
By Mirror | October 3rd 2014
USA: We've seen her in blue, red, gold, black and pretty much every other colour possible, and she stunned in every one - so it was no surprise to see her take the crown.
After stunning Lupita Nyong'o was named People magazine's Most Beautiful woman here are some of her red carpet moments.
The 12 Years A Slave actress took the crown ahead of stars including Amber Heard and Pink, saying she hoped it would make other women feel "more seen".
The 31-year-old told People: "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment.
"I was [especially] happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."
And it was undoubtedly deserved - we have seen the star burst on to the showbiz scene with every stunning dress imaginable over the last few months.
She really showed that she meant business when she arrived at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards at the start of this year in a floor-length red gown.
The off-the-shoulder number showed off her slim frame to perfection, and the star just couldn't stop smiling - radiating natural beauty.
It was possibly only trumped by the sky blue number she whipped out for the Oscars a couple of months later.
Undoubtedly stealing the show alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood, Lupita showed she wasn't afraid to show some flesh in the low-cut gown - and clearly it was lucky, because she walked away with a gong for Best Supporting Actress.
So, it's been a fairly good year then.
Another blue winner was her bright skintight number at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The star showed us her fun side on the red carpet and proved she's every bit the toned stunner in the floor-length gown.
But it's not just her clothes which make her stand out, Lupita is well known to experiment with her hair too.
We've seen that short cropped head in all sorts of styles, from clipped and chic to slicked back and glamorous, and we find ourselves getting excited every time we know she's going somewhere new.
The Oscar-winning star, who was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, always considered beautiful women to be the ones she saw on television who looked nothing like her.
Well, not anymore.
From gold knee-length numbers, to green backless gowns, the actress clearly has an endless wardrobe of possibilities, so we can't wait to see what else she has in store.
Congrats Lupita, you deserve it.
