Things can’t seem to get any better for Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o! Now, she can add People Magazine’s ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman 2014’ to her list of accolades. The magazine announced today that the actress was selected for their prestigious annual honor. Here is a snapshot of People’s coverage on the announcement:

Though she grew up thinking that “light skin and flowing, straight hair” made women desirable, World’s Most Beautiful Woman Nyong’o, 31, tells PEOPLE that her mother “always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point.” The Oscar winner, who’s now a face of Lancôme Paris, is excited for this honor in part because of “all the girls who would see me … and feel a little more seen.”

Amen, Lupita! This is such exciting news and so well deserved. Lupita continues to break down barriers. She is the first African named as People Magazine’s ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’. She joins the likes of other A-list recipients in prior years which include Julia Roberts, Beyoncé Knowles, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry to name a few.

I want to drink whatever Lupita is having lol. First, she wins an Academy Award for her first feature film role, then the Lancôme endorsement, and now she’s receiving People Magazine’s highest honor.  We can’t wait to see what’s next for this neophyte superstar. Way to go, Lupita!
