Lupita Nyong’o was in New York last night for Glamour Magazine’s 2014 Woman of the Year Award.
The 12 Years a Slave actress, who covers the December 2014 issue of Glamour, was celebrated at the ceremony inside Carnegie Hall for her brave performance in the film, as well as for making it her personal mission to redefine success and beauty.
“I am still a work in progress,” she told the audience. “To be woman is to be human. And to be human is to seek perfection and to find joy in never obtaining it.”
Lupita who wore an embellished Chanel mini dress on the carpet refused to spill any details on her involvement in the upcoming Star Wars film, but was happy to share her best beauty secret. “Never wear heels you can’t walk in!”
She did reveal that she’s most comfortable when at home, wearing her onesies.
