Quote:

Though she grew up thinking that "light skin and flowing, straight hair" made women desirable, World's Most Beautiful Woman Nyong'o, 31, tells PEOPLE that her mother "always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point." The Oscar winner, who's now a face of Lancôme Paris, is excited for this honor in part because of "all the girls who would see me … and feel a little more seen."





I usually do not buy People but I will buy this issue to support.

Ironically---this girl apparently doesn't have any movies lined up--which is probably why she switched agencies.  You win an Oscar and have zero scripts.  Other Oscar NOMINEES have 5 movies lined up.  She is living off that Lancome money only right now.

She needs to find someone who will get her a fashion endorsement, a big budget fantasy movie thing like Zoe Saldana does, and small indie stuff.  Essentially--model her career after Jennifer Lawrence imo. Of course it's harder bc she's black.

And Sandy I disagree with the overexposure idea.  When are black actresses ever really "overexposed" kwim? Ain't but like 20 and she and Halle are the only 2 I remember getting this honor.  I mean Halle did do that crappy movie afterwards though---Catwoman--but before that Halle was steadily working.  Lupita is different because she just started so this exposure is good for her nascent career imo.

I have no problem with a black woman being an "It Girl" and being "over exposed" or being shoved in my face all the time.Embarrassed

I don't look to whites to confirm anything before I believe it. That right there will get me got.

But on paper (which it all that matters in these parts) it's a good look for her. And some sad little girls might start liking the way they look. Don't know.

As far as her career goes, well she's got to know what dreams to follow and why.

I studied theatre, acted in a few plays, wanted to audition for Degrassi with my friend. He auditioned but I didn't. I didn't want to bump into the pile up of black actors trying to get on. I have a friend on Degrassi right now, actually. Wonder if she will move to LA. I like to eat plantain too much for that industry.
