Lupita Nyong’o teaches Elmo to love his skin on ‘Sesame Street’

I seriously hope Sesame Street goes on forever. Sure, it’s incredibly different to the program I grew up watching, but it’s so important for kids to watch programming that’s educational, empathetic and entertaining all at the same time rather than staring at meaningless shit on a glowing screen for hours on end.

Nowadays, Sesame Street relies a lot on celebrities to teach kids important lessons about everything from having a parent in jail to the newest episode, in which Lupita Nyong’o teaches Elmo to love his skin because we all need it to feel things and be ticklish. I love Lupita, and I really loved Sesame Street as a kid, so this is doubly adorable.

Lupita Nyong’o’s Lancôme ad is as beautiful as you’d expect

Earlier this year, Lupita Nyong’o was announced as the new face of Lancôme cosmetics – a refreshing choice, and one that a lot of people were really pleased with – especially considering she is the world’s Most Beautiful Person!

Now, the first image has been revealed – Lupita leaked it herself on her Instagram page – and it’s really beautiful. Simple, elegant, classy… all the things she has always portrayed herself to be, anyway.

Here’s what she told Vogue about the partnership:

“It’s not about conforming to an already established idea of what is beautiful, and I like that,” echoing what she said in her initial statement, “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme's] unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.”

What do you think of the ad?
