This is definitely Lupita’s year, have you heard? the gorgeous actress and academy award winner, is going to grace the cover of People’s Most Beautiful and boy am I getting a copy. This is pretty epic, we know Lupita is beautiful and she deserves to have the cover but what makes it special, is that there were years, I mean years when a face like hers would never grace the cover of a magazine like that.
That sounds so wrong to write, but its true, and we are so eternally grateful that we are living in a time when all beauty is starting to get accepted, every walk of life can have a chance to show off a smile on a international stage.
In her photo shoot Lupita mentioned that she loves to laugh and as she gets older she is laughing more. She also mentioned that her mom was the first to call her beautiful and would always do so even on the days she didn’t feel quite as pretty.
She also said she gets the most compliments when she isn’t wearing any makeup or when her hair isn’t combed. Aint that the truth, why do husbands always call you pretty when you haven’t done anything glamorous, you have pineapple in your hair and you are dog tired?
Lupita is the perfect example of what little black girls need to emulate and we are grateful that she joins a list of women young girls can look at and feel comfortable about being in their own skin.
The video we are about to share was her behind the scenes on the day she shot the cover, it was pretty glamorous, very glitsy but keeping her look very light and natural and happy. They had chandeliers and dressed her in comfortable flirty clothing with simple tasteful jewelry and using roses as accents. It was simply gorgeous, and she connected very well with the camera as usual.
We are so proud and want to join everyone in saying thank you for being who you are and congratulations on getting the cover, well deserved, very well deserved. Watch the video and let us know what you think.
