Could this year get any better?

When it comes to success, Lupita Nyong’o is sure to be having, pretty much the best year ever!

6 months into 2014, Lupita has won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave, graduated from Yale University, joined the cast of Star Wars and made her first appearance on the glossiest of all fashion magazines, Vogue’s July issue.

But this is not Nyong’o’s first cover! Back in April she also took the title of ‘People’s Most Beautiful Woman in the World’, appearing on the cover of People Magazine.


Nyong’o is pictured throughout the Vogue’s July 2014 issue, reaching yet another milestone in her career.

The 31-year-old actress tells Vogue: ‘It just feels like the entertainment industry exploded into my life. People who seemed so distant all of a sudden were right in front of me and recognising me — before I recognised them!”

She also describes her recent Oscar win to be: “very confusing, very numbing” and exclusively tells Vogue how she felt when they said her name; ” I was just repeating my name in my head, so I didn’t know whether I had said my name or they had said my name! And then my little brother screamed, and time was suspended and it was just noise in my head.”

I am so happy for Lupita’s recent success and think this is only the beginning! I can not begin to imagine what Lupita aims to achieve in the second half of 2014. I guess we will all just have to wait and see!
