Lupita Nyong'o on the May 2015 Cover of Harper's Bazaar UK

Lupita Nyong'o careers continues to shine and the 'Star Wars' actress is on the May 2015 cover of Harper's Bazaar UK. On the beauty cover photographed by Alexi Lubormirski, Lupita is all smiles with a pink flower in her hair and a CHOPARD ring on her finger.

I love this beauty shot of Lupita, it showcases how beauty can come in any color. In the issue she talks about the thinking the frenzy of her will come to an end after her Oscar win, being afraid to dance and more. Continue below to read the excerpts from her interview and to see more images. You can pick up an copy on newsstand now and go to for more on her feature.

On the frenzy of her career coming to an end after her Oscar win:
‘You know, I thought it would come to an end after the Oscars. I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I’d be back in my apartment.’

On being afraid to dance: 
‘There was a time when I was afraid to dance. My older sister would dance with abandon. She would do it to entertain. I was so mortified at the thought of wiggling my body in any direction. And I wrestled with myself, because I didn’t want to be so self-conscious. I wanted to be able to enjoy music and not care that I looked cute. I don’t know when something switched in my head, but I’m so glad it did, because I feel like dancing, and being able to enjoy one’s body for oneself is such a precious, precious thing. For yourself, you know? If this had happened to me at a time when I couldn’t dance – ha – my God, I think I would be way more of a wreck.’
