2014 is certainly shaping up to be Lupita Nyong’o‘s year, and thank goodness for that – she’s divine! She’s already won an Oscar and signed on as the new face of Lancôme, and now she’s got another honour: she’s People’s Most Beautiful Woman!
Though she grew up thinking that “light skin and flowing, straight hair” made women desirable, World’s Most Beautiful Woman Nyong’o, 31, tells PEOPLE that her mother “always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point.” The Oscar winner, who’s now a face of Lancôme Paris, is excited for this honor in part because of “all the girls who would see me … and feel a little more seen.”
Good for her! Even though this whole feature is cornball city and only furthers the idea that ladies need to be physically attractive, yada yada. But that’s a tale as old as time, so let’s just embrace this, I suppose. Also, let’s appreciate that Pink is on this list, as is Kerry Washington. Some of the other choices are a bit… incorrect, but whatever.

So The Grammys bore a new meme: Pharrell‘s hat.
Sorry, but I’m not ready for this to be a new thing.
Let’s take a look at what others wore to this craptacular awards show!
Pink gave a curse-filled interview (naturally, she’s Pink) with GQ Australia in which she doted upon her daughter. She admitted that she wasn’t sure if she wanted kids, ever, but now that she has her daughter Willow Sage, she’s thrilled. Willow Sage!!! From GQ Australia, via People:
I had moments where I wanted a kid with Carey. You know — you fall in love and you’re like, ‘We should have kids,’ and then it went away. But he always wanted kids and then we did it and now it’s like, ‘F-ck, this is so rad.’ It’s more important than anything we’ve done. She’s the coolest thing that has ever happened to me — she’s really f-cking cheeky and funny. Now I have someone to sing goofy-ass songs to all day and she likes it. She’s not judging me. She’s probably the only person who doesn’t judge me.
Then came the inevitable question everyone seems to ask celebs about whether fame has ~~changed them~~ and she said,
My life hasn’t changed that much. I mean, I could do without the paparazzi taking photos of my child. But I tour, I write songs, I go through the same shit as everybody else. I’ve never enveloped myself in that, ‘I’m a f-cking rockstar, I’m important,’ thing. I don’t get it — either you’re a good person or you’re not.
Gotta say her daughter is really effing cute but her mentioning the paparazzi photos of her kids makes me want to be respectful and not post them. She should do a royal family portrait, I’d share that.
