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.

Vogue Profiles Marissa Mayer

We love the faux-gravity-defying photo by Mikael Jansson of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer that crowns the Web version of Jacob Weisberg‘s profile piece for the September issue of Vogue. It captures the idea of the exec calmly piloting from the middle of a previous storm.

Weisberg visited Mayer at her offices in Sunnyvale, CA and also attended a movers-and-shakers party staged at her Palo Alto home. This new-mom CEO feels that one of the most positive signs is that employees are no longer leaking her emails to the press. She also has no problem admitting to a geeky love of certain digits:

When I turned 37, I put on a strong face, but I was not looking forward to 37. But 37 turned out to be a pretty amazing year. Especially considering that 36 is divisible by twelve!”
