Most Beautiful & Most Influential

by Kéla Walker

It’s a Black Girl domination as Lupita Nyong’o and Beyoncé are named 2014 Most Beautiful & Most Influential people in the World.  *Squeal* While Liputa Nyong’o lands the cover of People magazine as “Most Beautiful”,  Beyoncé is perched right beside her on the same newsstand covering Time Magazine’s 100 issue as “Most Influential”. No offense to ANYONE but it’s high time our excellence was recognized by the masses AND in such a prominent way.
Girls Rule the World and Black Girls Rock..
I’ve been saying it for years and now the rest of the world will know it too.

Kotinue for more Most Beautiful and Most Influential


How Flawless is Beyoncé on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People cover?   Here her natural beauty is as radiant as ever with minimal makeup wearing this shear white number.  If you ask me this tile is long over due for Mrs Carter,  considering she’s had an influence over me (and millions of others) for years now. When you drop everything at midnight to listen to an album and watch all 18 videos (some twice) before going to bed, you know you are clearly influenced- not to mention the tons of style notes I take from the Diva herself.  “Yonce made me do it”. Lean In Author Sheryl Sandberg conducted the interview so you know it’s a good read. Other notable Women nominees on the Time 100 list include Céline Creative Director Phoebe Philo, Net-a-Porter Founder Natalie, Pop star/ proud twerker Miley Cyrus and Scandal star / mom-to-be Kerry Washington who pulls double duty and is also listed in People’s Most Beautiful issue with cover girl,  Lipita Nyong’o. More than being Most Beautiful, Lipita is also Most Stylish. One look at her red carpet style fashion and there is no argument that the extra title is well deserved.  It’s so great to see Lupita named Most Beautiful. Absolutely every time you see her she is glowing and seems to have a personality just as beautiful as her appearance and wardrobe.  Lupita “never dreamed” she’d be considered “Most Beautiful.” The GAWEGEOUS star told the magazine that gracing this year’s cover is “exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”


Kongrats to both ladies. Watch behind the scenes footage of Lupita’s cover shoot below.

Beyonce took home the World’s Most Beautiful title  in 2012.  If Lupita’s reign continues at at the rate it’s going, she’ll surely follow in Bey’s footstep as Most Influential in years to come.

What do you think of Beyonce and Lupita’s new title?
