Once again, Lupita Nyong'o has managed to make jaws drop with her undeniable beauty. This time, the Academy Award-winning actress graces the cover of Essence Magazine's January 2016 cover, and she's the definition of perfection wearing a coral metallic number that complements her luminous complexion.

In the cover story, which kicks off the new year, Nyong'o opens up about her blossoming career and how she's able to maintain balance throughout her life. The 32-year-old even revealed to Essence, "I just know that at this point in my career I feel lucky and fortunate to be in a position where I have choice and I have a semblance of a platform, where people are listening to what I want to do and are willing to help me realize those things…"
