Beating out the likes of Kerry Washington, Zooey Deschanel, Halle Berry and Jennifer Lawrence, 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o has been named People magazine's 2014 World's Most Beautiful Woman.
Though the 31-year-old Oscar winner grew up thinking that "light skin and flowing, straight hair" was what made a woman attractive, she tells People that her mother "always said I was beautiful, and I finally believed her at some point."
Lupita is now the face of Lancome Paris, and says she hopes "all the girls who would see me [on the cover] …feel a little more seen."
Who's your pick for this year's World's Most Beautiful Woman?
