Have we ever seen one actress, and a newcomer at that, go so far? Even if you’re not in the magazine industry, you must know how hard it is for an African American celebrity or model to “get” to grace the cover of a national magazine, except the August issues, of course (sidebar: August issues are always thinner because of the staff being on summer holidays and they’re prepping for the mega September issues that follow them).
Miss Lupita Nyong’o though, our Oscar-winner, has managed magazine cover after cover, fashion spread after fashion spread…we can’t even imagine how much her phone must be ringing off the hook. So all that is to say, it’s so well-deserved that this beauty shines from the inside out and has been serving as a cover girl. Go Lupita!
