Lupita Nyong’o continues her impressive streak of magazine covers. This time, she covers Harper’s Bazaar’s May Issue looking naturally beautiful as always. Check out some of the stunning pictures of our star girl. In the issue, Nyong’o reflects on her success, her love for dancing, and more.
Nyong’o reflecting on her success:
‘You know, I thought it would come to an end after the Oscars.’ She means the frenzy. ‘I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I’d be back in my apartment.’
Nyong’o on her love of dancing:
“There was a time when I was afraid to dance. My older sister would dance with abandon,” she said. “She would do it to entertain. I was so mortified at the thought of wiggling my body in any direction. And I wrestled with myself, because I didn’t want to be so self-conscious. I wanted to be able to enjoy music and not care that I looked cute. I din’t know when something switched in my head, but I’m so glad it did, because I feel like dancing, and being able to enjoy one’s body for oneself is such a precious, precious thing. For yourself, you know?’ ‘If this had happened to me at a time when I couldn’t dance – ha – my God, I think I would be way more of a wreck.’
