I dig her beauty-from-the-inside-out glow….
Congratulations to Lupita Nyong’o and all beautiful women of color! We love how she honors #FierceBeauty - on the inside and out: “You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you…beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be. You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful, is compassion—for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.” People’s 50 Most Beautiful
