People magazine reveals their picks for the Most Beautiful yearly, which sometimes appears to be more “politically correct” than based on physical appearance.
This year’s list includes stunning Hollywood starlets and some inclusions that makes us say “ummm, what?” Check them out!
The Most Beautiful named for 2014 is “12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o. This 31-year-old actress has had a huge year, landing an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
Now the beauty has been given the title of People magazine’s Most Beautiful woman.
The actress was thrilled about the accolade, admitting growing up she felt beauty meant “light skin and long, flowing hair”.
Lupita said, “[My mother] always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point.”
She revealed she was quite the tomboy, stating, “I would never look in the mirror, never, ever. One day my mother actually dragged me and made me look at myself and said, ‘Look, you are ashy! You need some lotion!'”
