We Would Like To See More Of Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita Nyong’o is about to be everywhere, and we couldn't be more pumped. It's not just that her skin is so luminous it literally looks lit from within — which we're sure is genetics, but we think makeup artist Nick Barose, who did her makeup for this event, also deserves some credit. Nor is it that her lipstick in this photo (Votre Vu French Kiss Moisture Riche Lipstick in Margaux, for those of you who are curious) is as close to a perfect fall red that one could get.

No, it's all of that and the fact that she just has that kind of face that we could look at forever, like maybe she invented being ridiculously good-looking. Clearly Nyong'o is more than just a pretty face — though she's the female star in the highly-anticipated film 12 Years a Slave, we're fairly certain that this Yale grad's career will outlast the film's buzz. Just a feeling.
