People just named Lupita Nyong’o as the year’s most beautiful person. (No word yet on the year’s most handsome avatar).

+ “I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin … And when I was a teenager my self-hate grew worse.” That’s from a recent speech on race and beauty given by Nyong’o. It’s worth a listen.
