How amazing is Lupita! She sparkles on the cover of Marie Claire Magazine and drops a few more gems in her feature. And I thought nothing could beat her quote during the 2014 Oscars Awards acceptance speech “Your dreams are valid”. Here are a few excerpts!
On waiting to win or lose at award shows
I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s an internally loud moment. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.
On how she feels about all the attention surrounding her beauty
Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me.
On fashion and style
I wasn’t a follower of fashion. It was a world unknown. Then I met my stylist, Micaela Erlanger [introduced to her by friend and Non-Stop costar Michelle Dockery], and we came to interpret my style: clean lines, strong color. I don’t dress to impress; I don’t feel that pressure.
