GIRL CRUSH: LUPITA NYONG'O
Beauty, Style, Intelligence, Grace, Talent. This list goes on. Totally Crushing on this lady.
I don't usually talk race, but this Forbes article has me feeling some kind of way about Ms. Nyong'o. And this heartfelt and personal story on the business of being beautiful inside stirred so many emotions within me it stole my breath. It excites me beyond measure to have this beautiful young woman blazing a path for all young women and especially women of color. I could not wait to show munchkin pictures of this Academy Award winner and have her hear the eloquent and beautiful acceptance speech she gave. I will admit although I have been following her this awards season I had not seen the movie. I try to steer clear of movies that will make me burst into tears in the theatre (or make me want to throw things at the screen). But I hear its being re-released this weekend. I'm eager to make sure I see this woman and her amazing style not only on the red carpet and in magazines but in her acting debut.
So excited for her, and wishing her continued success.
What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion, for yourself and for those around you - Lupita Nyong'o
