Lupita Nyong’o Covers Glamour Magazine’s December Issue – Named Woman of the Year

Academy Award winning actress, and DiC girlfriend, Lupita Nyong’o graces the December cover of Glamour magazine. She was crowned the mag’s ‘Woman Of The Year and what a year it has been for her. She of course received accolades and awards for her star turning performance as Patsy in ‘12 Years A Slave,’ and next we will see her in a galaxy far, far away the next installment of the ‘Star Wars‘ franchise.

Photographed by Tom Munro, Nyong’o sports a couple of fab looks, including the chic white top by The Row for the cover, a colorful number by Christopher Kane and a mini Miu Miu dress. After becoming a red carpet favorite during awards season, a lot of attention was paid to her sartorial choices and the term The Lupita Effect was coined, but she takes things like that all in stride.

I giggle. I just heard it for the first time. I’ve heard people talk about images in popular culture changing, and that makes me feel great, because it means that the little girl I was, once upon a time, has an image to instill in her that she is beautiful, that she is worthy—that she can… Until I saw people who looked like me, doing the things I wanted to, I wasn’t so sure it was a possibility.”

With a commitment to changing beauty standards, Lupita has become a role model and she cites women like Oprah Winfrey for helping her to believe that she could be an actress.

Oprah played a big role in my understanding of what it meant to be female and to really step into your own power. I wouldn’t even call her a role model; she was literally a reference point. You have the dictionary, you have the Bible, you have Oprah.

You can see more of Lupita, and read the rest of her interview when the issue hits newsstands November 11.

Brad Pitt Breakdances With Jimmy Fallon Plus His Details and GQ UK Covers

Brad-Jimmy

 

Brad Pitt stopped by The Tonight Show on Wednesday to promote his new movie, Fury.’ He could have just done a sit down interview, but where’s the fun in that? He has a “breakdance conversation” with Jimmy Fallon down in the graffiti covered basement of 30 Rock, which is even better than their “yodel conversation” from last year. They had a little help from two dance doubles, but their Kid n Play is pretty good. Check it out!

Pitt also covers two magazines for November. For Details he was photographed among the Redwoods of the Humboldt Redwoods State Park in Northern California by Mark Seliger, who also captured him while he rode his motorcycle.

Pitt says that in the traffic of LA, he’s just “another asshole on the road,” but his favorite places to ride are the wonderful places he gets to travel to. In the interview, he also says that he discovered that he doesn’t suck at being a dad. I’m sure his children really appreciate that.

He does another rugged shoot with John Balsom for GQ UK . He recently married longtime love Angelina Jolie in a cute, private ceremony, and tells the mag that marriage is more than just a title. And about his fellow newlywed friend George Clooney calling him “unreachable.” well he’s not too bothered by it.

“Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as shit.  He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable bastard. I’m a bit of a loner you know?  I’m more quiet by nature.  And coming from, you know, hillbilly country, I’m probably more reserved.”

And that’s why we love you Brad, you hayseed, you.
