Lupita Nyong'o has been named People's most beautiful

Lupita Nyong'o is People's most beautiful person. The Oscar winner topped the magazine's list of the 50 most beautiful people. Lupita told People, "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

Lupita says she first associated with beauty with what she saw on television. She says, "Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair. Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you posses." She says her mother always told her she was beautiful.

Here is a behind-the-scenes video of Lupita's People shoot. Take a look:

Lupita was followed by Keri Russell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Mindy Kaling, Pink, Amber Heard and Gabrielle Union. You can view a list of the People's top eleven most beautiful here. The issue hits newsstands on April 25.
