Lupita Nyong’o Covers Marie Claire

Lupita Nyong’o for Marie Clarie

Lupita Nyong’o has snagged yet another magazine cover, this time Marie Claire. The 31-year-old newly appointed face of Lancôme is featured in the May issue of Marie Claire alongside Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke, Elizabeth Olsen and Elle Fanning. “Is this the new generation of leading ladies?” the mag asks about the actresses who each garnered separate covers focused on up-and-coming Hollywood women.

Nyong’o, who is also rumored to be dating rapper K’Naan, dished to the publication about her legendary Oscar win and the torturous process of waiting for her category to be announced.

“I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy,” Nyong’o said. “It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.”

She also dished on her beauty that’s been lauded constantly throughout her breakthrough year.

“Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me,” said the beauty, who was actually born in Mexico but raised by her Kenyan parents in Kenya.
