The Daily Grind Video

Lupita Nyong’o is always winning, and she’s landed herself another fashion victory, as she is the star of the cover of Lucky’s March 2015 issue.

The Oscar-winning actress looks stunning on the cover, and within the mag’s spread, as she sports a multi-colored two piece dress, along with some bouncy curls and au naturale makeup.

In the spread, Lupita opens up about social media, not being allowed to wear makeup as a teenager, fame, applying to Yale University, and much much more.

Read some excerpts below:

On Her View Of Social Media :

“I’m governed by things that made me smile, laugh and think. And if they do that to me, then I ask myself, would anybody else care to see this? If I can think of one person, I post it.”

On Public Speaking:

“It makes me very nervous. My heart is on my sleeve when I do those things, but the only way I know to do them is to speak from my heart. So it costs me a lot, and then I need to take a nap.”

On Her Not Being Allowed to Wear Makeup As A Teen:

“My mother has never ever worn a drop of makeup in her life-not even at her wedding. Honestly, my mother’s outlook was hard for me to take when I was a teenager and wanted to experiment. But in the end I appreciated it, because today I can look in a mirror with no makeup on and love myself.”

On Fame Itself:

“The not-so-fun part of all this is that when I don’t feel like being famous, I still am. When you¹re in the middle of Manhattan and you have to pop into Starbucks to use the restroom and everyone recognizes you when you¹re waiting in line, its awkward.”

On Applying To Yale School of Drama:

“How difficult it was to get in is something I had to ignore. It wasn’t up to me to decide that I didn’t belong there. What I had to do was just show up and do my thing-to dare to try.”

You can pick up Lupita’s Lucky cover when the magazine hits newsstands on February 17th, 2015! Find more information here.
