She really is as lovely as she seems.
Lupita Nyong'o was named the face of Lancôme earlier in the year and now we're finally getting to see her in action.
Shot in Manhattan back in March, we've been given the exclusive behind the scenes video of Lupita's first major Lancome campaign.
Of her dream role as an ambassadress for the beauty brand, Lupita says: 'Lancome is a brand for me that doesn't stand for defining beauty, but celebrating it.'
And, when asked what beauty means to her, she gave the most perfect answer: 'Beauty for me is lighting up your face with your spirit. It comes from inside. It can be cliched but it's so true. If you feel beautiful then your beauty is more likely to be received and to be seen.'
So true. Watch the video below and you'll see that she is most definitely her own definition of beauty.
We cannot stop staring at her face.
