Home/Blog / The diversity of beauty ideals – Lupita Nyong’o


It’s Oscar season!  One of the nicest things about last year was Lupita Nyong’o’s becoming a red carpet fixture and beauty icon (she is now a model for Lancome) as a result of her role in Twelve Years a Slave.  I think young girls don’t hear enough that they are beautiful, and Lupita gave a wonderful speech about how she grew to embrace her own beauty, when she felt like the world was telling her it was impossible.  I look forward to her next big role!
