Earlier this month, not only did People Magazine graciously present Lupita Nyong’o with the title of “Most Beautiful” person, they opened up a very special moment for the young star at their cover shoot. They made Lupita’s ‘dream come true’ by introducing her to her living inspiration and iconic international supermodel, Alek Wek.
It was back in February at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon that Lupita shared a powerful and awe-inspiring speech in which she mentions Alek as being one of the people that gave her hope in embracing her own beauty. Check out the pair’s exchange below:
Academy award winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o is lighting up more than the big screen this year. She has been granted the duty of being the new ambassadress for Lancôme. We are overjoyed for her and salute the Lancôme brand for celebrating her beauty
in this newly formed partnership.
Lupita Nyong’o has been on everyone’s radar since her back to back award winning spree. Now that award season has calmed, many people have turned to Lupita’s personal life as a new source of fascination.
Rumors instantly flew off the shelf at what many hoped would be a budding relationship between her and Dallas Buyer’s Club star Jared Leto.
Sadly, no fairytale Oscar couple there. Turns out Lupita and Jared are indeed really just friends; friends who enjoy a healthy platonic relationship consisting of pranking the world.
Yep they fooled us all. Well not necessarily because they never actually confirmed anything, lol.
Not to worry, all hope isn’t lost for young Lupita. According to US weekly Nyong’o has been secretly dating Somali-Canadian rapper K’Naan since September. Oop!
If you aren’t familiar, K’naan is a rapper, singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist known notably for his 2010 multi-platinum world cup song, Wavin’ Flag. K’naan uses his music and influence to inspire change by bring attention to the plight of individuals living in the African diaspora.
What are your thoughts? Chime in below.
Do they make a cute couple?
