Shining Star: Lupita Nyong'o - Lupita graces the cover of the "Most Beautiful" issue of 2014, an honor that she doesn't take lightly.  She recently won an Oscar for her role in the movie "12 Years A Slave" and landed a deal with Lancome Paris, but she is still modest about her beauty.  She said, "It was exciting and just a major, major accomplishment.  I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

She added that her idea of beauty came from what she saw on television.  She said, "Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair.  Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess."

"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," the 31-year-old says of gracing this year's cover. And especially, "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."
