Flawless Lupita Nyong’o is Flawless on Vogue Cover

Lupita Nyong’o has landed what promises to be the first of many Vogue covers. And, of course, she looks amazing. The 31-year-old actress was photographed by Mikael Jansson.

In the accompanying profile, Nyong’o was lavished with plenty of praise. While that’s not surprising, we were taken aback when Nyong’o expressed admiration for Star Wars’ R2-D2 and C-3PO.

“They just resonated with me,” she explained. “Being able to convey emotions with just a few digital sounds — it speaks of good storytelling.” Uh, sure! Whatever. She’s great. She can like Jabba the Hutt for all we care.
