Honorees Lupita Nyong'o & Chelsea Clinton Look Amazing at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2014

Lupita Nyong’o looks stunning while arriving for the 2014 Glamour Women Of The Year Awards held at Carnegie Hall on Monday evening (November 10) in New York City.

The 31-year-old Oscar winner and honoree of the evening was joined by fellow honoree Chelsea Clinton, who brought along her husband Marc Mezvinsky.

“For me it’s not just one thing,” Lupita told the publication in her gorgeous cover story about what success represents to her. “Every time I overcome an obstacle, it feels like success. Sometimes the biggest ones are in our head—the saboteurs that tell us we can’t. I’ve always had that going on: “I can’t,” and then I do, so the voice says, “Well, that was an exception!” It’s a tug-of-war between two voices: the one who knows she can and the one who’s scared she can’t.”

FYI: Lupita is wearing Kurt Geiger shoes and an Amanda Pearl clutch.

Lupita Nyong'o Named Glamour's Woman of the Year, Talks Life After Her Oscar Win!

Lupita Nyong’o stuns on the December 2014 cover of Glamour magazine’s Women of the Year Issue!

Here’s what the 31-year-old Oscar winning actress had to share with the mag:

On hearing her name called at the Oscars: “I don’t think I will ever be able to really articulate how bizarre it was to hear my name at the Academy Awards. I’d watched in my pajamas the year before! I felt numb—dazed and confused. I remember feeling light—weightless. More like limbo than cloud nine.”

On life after winning an Oscar: “This is actually a conversation I look forward to having in 10 years, when all of this is behind me and I have some real perspective on what happened—because right now I’m still adjusting. I guess I feel catapulted into a different place; I have a little whiplash…. I did have a dream to be an actress, but I didn’t think about being famous. And I haven’t yet figured out how to be a celebrity; that’s something I’m learning, and I wish there were a course on how to handle it. I have to be aware that my kinesphere may be larger than I want it to be.”

On ‘The Lupita Effect’: “I’ve heard people talk about images in popular culture changing, and that makes me feel great, because it means that the little girl I was, once upon a time, has an image to instill in her that she is beautiful, that she is worthy—that she can… Until I saw people who looked like me, doing the things I wanted to, I wasn’t so sure it was a possibility. Seeing Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah in The Color Purple, it dawned on me: ‘Oh—I could be an actress!’ We plant the seed of possibility.”

“Downing Street with Rosamund Pike. #GoneGirl found at @theacademy induction,” Lupita captioned the photo of the two.

Recently, Lupita revealed that she shaved her head at 19 because of damage to her hair from chemical treatments.

“But it wasn’t on a whim — I spent days thinking about it first,” she told Redbook magazine. “Once I did it, it was very liberating, but I also felt very naked. When you feel the wind on your scalp, it’s like, Oh, my God. But I’ve kept my hair short ever since.”
