Here’s to changing the beauty paradigm.
Lupita Nyong’o is People Magazine’s Most Beautiful person.
I could go into a whole discussion about why I shouldn’t be excited at the media’s changing definition of beauty, that she may be the exception that proves the white, Eurocentric beauty rule, etc…but I won’t.
I’ve been having some beauty doubts recently. Telling myself “I’m beautiful like Lupita, I’m beautiful like Lupita, I’m beautiful like Lupita” just like any five year old would do has helped lift the doubts.
