Lupita Nyong'o

People magazine has named Lupita Nyong'o as its most beautiful person of 2014. The Magazine unveiled its annual Most Beautiful cover on the Today show Wednesday on April 23.

It should not be surprising to anyone, not only because Nyong'o is breathtakingly beautiful, but because Lupita has charmed everyone and handled her recent success with humility and grace.

She won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in this year's Best Picture: "12 Years a Slave," inked a contract with Lancome Paris, and is always on the "best dressed" lists everywhere she appears.

People editor Jess Cagle told the Today show on Wednesday:

"There was really no contest this year..she seemed like the only choice...She is fantastic...she's obviously talented, obviously beautiful. She is incredibly stylish...The way she carries herself, with such grace and such humility, is what I think really put her over the top."
