Cover Story: Actress Lupita Nyong'o Is the World's Most Beautiful

This has got to be the third most exciting event for the month of April after my daughter's and her little angel's birthday. I don't normally buy People Magazine, but I had to buy this one featuring Academy Award winning actress, Lupita Nyong'o on the cover.

Can we say stunning! Photographer Alexi Lubomirski captured Lupita at her most elegant and I know he's the go-to photographer for Lancôme Paris, so I can't wait to see her new ad-campaigns for the brand. I've been using Lancôme cosmetics for a while now and with Lupita now joining Arlenis Sosa and Jasmine Tookes as the brand representive for darker complected women of color, it's just icing on the cake, so they can expect to see me at their makeup counter quite regularly.

"I told my daughter there's a first time for everything and this was worth buying and I normally read digital magazines."

First Look-Glamour Magazine March 2014: Actress Lupita Nyong'o

Many of us may love her makeup looks, so now Glamour magazine is giving us just a little taste of Lupita Nyong'o's makeup routine from some of her favorite makeup artists, whom she has worked with in the March issue of Glamour.

I think her makeup artist, Nick Barose does a wonderful job of applying Lupita's makeup. I don't know why some women shy away from bold colors, but if you're a richly hued woman like myself and Lupita, you can rock those bold and beautiful colors proudly. All it takes is confidence. Makeup artist Christian McCulloch created these makeup looks based upon Lupita's love of color.

All I know is that Essence better have one hell of a editorial featuring Lupita Nyong'o in their March 2014 issue because she is 'killin it' in this issue of VOGUE ITALIA. The woman exudes confidence in every photograph that she takes and it shows. Tom Munro captured this Kenyan beauty just right and the fabulous Patti Wilson who is known to be a little avant garde, styled Lupita just right in clothing that doesn't over power her, but lets her individuality shine through on this shoot. It's great when you can just go to Zinio and buy what you want to and sometimes I just buy the magazines for their editorials which might feature my favorite models or celebrities. Enjoy!

About An It Girl: Solange Knowles for Cosmopolitan Magazine March 2014

In the March 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, Solange Knowles shines a spotlight on my wonderful city, NOLA. Under the expert eyes of one of the best dressed women on the planet, Shiona Turini, Solange was right at home in her stylish element of pastels against the backdrops of painted shotgun houses. Also included in this issue, is an editorial featuring Chanel Iman, which I posted on my Tumblr page.
