Lupita Nyong’o is People Magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman

Lupita Nyong'o covers People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful

Image: People

Can't say we didn't see this coming… People magazine has announced its annual "50 Most Beautiful" issue and topping the list of gorgeous gals? None other than Mexican-born Kenyan Lupita Nyong'o. The 31-year-old Oscar-winning actress has been honored by the glossy for both her outer beauty and her general awesomeness, which she's been blessing us with again and again since she sprung on the scene. 

The actress has been fully embraced by the fashion set, landing campaigns with Prada and more recently, Lancôme. And, not to mention her consistent and continued slayage on the red carpet, twirling and pretty much shutting down the everything in designers like Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Giambattista Valli couture and oh so many more.

As Nyong'o told People, this is an honor she never dreamed she'd get: "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," she said. "I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

I, for one, am so excited to see Ms. Lupita, a symbol of native African beauty, being honored in this way. Needless to say, women who look like Lupita are rarely recognized or considered beautiful even when they really are. There has been much talk about whether Nyong'o's star would continue to shine, particularly in Western society when fair-skinned, blonde women are the standard of beauty. At the very least, this cover proves that Lupita, America's sweetheart, is here to stay!

Léa Seydoux is Back for Prada’s ‘Candy Florale’ Fragrance Ad (Forum Buzz)

She's no stranger to Prada, so it's no wonder she's very comfortable here. All month, we've been seeing "Candy Florale" campaign images trickle out, and it looks like Léa Seydoux is back at the face of the fragrance franchise. The French actress, photographed by Steven Meisel, is pictured reclining nude on a blush-toned couch. This particular image is perfect for Prada's market and truly captures the essence of the fragrance.

Seydoux was also the face of Prada's Resort/Jewels campaign in 2012 and has also starred in two previous fragrance adverts for the Italian fashion house.

Naomi Campbell Scores Vogue Australia’s Limited-Edition Cover for May (Forum Buzz)

You might have already seen Kylie Minogue on the cover of the main issue and wondered why two different covers are floating around online. But Vogue Australia is jumping on the bandwagon and has created a "special limited-edition collector's cover" to coincide with its May 2014 issue.

The collectable cover features modeling icon Naomi Campbell. The Face mentor is seen wearing a top and skirt from Alexander McQueen's spring 2014 collection, designed by Sarah Burton.

Our Favorite Pieces from Coco Rocha’s Guest Collection for BaubleBar

Coco-Rocha-BaubleBar-Landscape

Over the years, Coco Rocha's proved herself to be more than just a pretty face. She's one of the most social media-savvy models out there and has buttressed her career with TV hosting, correspondent and activism gigs. Her latest effort is for BaubleBar, for which she is stepping in as a "Guest Bartender," or in layman's terms, co-collaborator.

Rocha's 20-piece collection with BaubleBar is meant, like any ideal fashion collaboration, to take the wearer from day to night at prices that won't melt your credit card. "I’m from a middle class family and I don’t think fashionable jewelry should always cost as much as a down payment on a house," she told People. The collection is full of statement pieces meant to take a simple look to the next, more fashion-y level. "Jewelry shouldn't be an accessory or an afterthought—it should be an integral part of a look," Rocha explained to Refinery 29. "We live in an age when we can switch out our jewelry as much as we want, and I think we should!" 

It's fitting, then, that the collection offers so many options. Ear cuffs, look-at-me bib necklaces and stacked rings are the name of the game here. The pieces are certainly conversation starters, which is exactly what Rocha says she wanted. "You don't need an extravagant wardrobe to wear it." Works for us, since our wardrobes are certainly not as as extravagant as hers!

Take a look at some of our favorite pieces from the range, which you can shop right now at BaubleBar.

Today is the 44th annual Earth Day and here at tFS, we're all over it — but we're also gearing up to support another important occasion that's coming up later this week. Thursday, April 24 is Fashion Revolution Day, marking the one-year anniversary of last year's tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, which left at least 1,133 people dead and 2,500 wounded

In honor of all the workers around the world who make our clothing, the Fashion Revolution campaign asks supporters to wear their clothing inside out on Thursday, tagging photos of themselves with the hashtag #InsideOut. The project was founded by eco-designers Carry Somers and Orsola de Castro, and has attracted ethical fashion activists from around the world, including high-profile supporters like model Amber Valletta, who shared a video in support of the #insideout campaign on Instagram earlier today. Watch it below:
