Behold, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has at long last arrived.
After having one hell of a year in 2013, we all knew it would be a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o graced the glossy known as the American fashion Bible. It only made sense–we’ve been praising Lupita for being the goddess that she is in pretty much all aspects of life.
We first fell in love with Lupita following her role as Patsy in 12 Years a Slave, and soon after, the Academy-Award winning actress set our fashion hearts a flutter by ruling the red carpet time and time again. And now, she’s slaying once again, this time on the cover of Vogue magazine’s July issue.
The Most Beautiful Person of 2014, as named by People magazine (and well, the rest of the world), is pure perfection in a Prada Fall 2014 frock. Perfection, we…

Let’s face it, adulthood can be stressful. Although stress does not directly cause acne, research has uncovered that acne breakouts are more common when a person is stressed out or anxious.
It seems impossible to eliminate stress from our daily lives, so what can you do about your stress-induced acne? Well, you can buy expensive drug store creams and go to the dermatologist to get costly prescriptions for over-the-counter pills, but this seems far-fetched for those of us who are trying to survive on a budget.
So, here are some home remedies that you can try with things you can find around the house!
1. Baking Soda Exfoliation
- Mix together 2 tbsp. of baking soda with 1 tbsp. of water until it forms a thick liquid.
- Smooth mixture over clean face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
- This is a natural exfoliate that helps to calm acne and oily skin.
2. Oatmeal Mask

Hollywood’s love affair with Lupita Nyong’o won’t be ending anytime soon, and for good reason.
After nabbing her very first Oscar for her breakout role in 12 Years a Slave just last month, Lupita has already snagged herself another big gig as the face of Lancôme. It was only a matter of time until a beauty brand scooped her up–she’s the epitome of beautiful inside and out. From her flawless ebony skin to the way she glides down red carpets with sheer grace, our favorite leading lady is perfect for her new role.
“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancôme, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved. I am particularly proud to represent its unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself,” Nyong’o said in a statement…

Hi you guys!!!
I need your help! For a while now, modeling has been something that I’ve been afraid to do. People have always told me that I have ‘the look.’ I’ve even had someone assume that I was already stabilized in a modeling career. But part of me didn’t believe them. Part of me didn’t believe that I.. that this girl.. could ever be anything close to a model. But that part of me has been replaced.
I made a pact with myself to always believe that I am enough. Damn my big ass nose. Damn my ugly ass acne. I am enough. I am just enough as needed if not more to make my dreams a reality and become a model. And to start, I entered a contest entitled “Lipstick Love Affair.” With your help, I could win a professional photo shoot, press release and comp card if…

Obsessed with Kendall Jenner? We don’t blame you.
Lucky for us all, she’s everywhere right now. The 18-year-old model has been on countless magazine covers, working with major names in the fashion industry and strutting her stuff on catwalks from New York to Paris. She can’t be stopped and we’re A-OK with that.
For years, Kendall was a sideline player on her family’s hit reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She and sister Kendall would pop up here and there to drop a few gems and disappear again, never really giving viewers the chance to fall in love. Fortunately now that she’s older, Kendall’s gotten a lot more air time and people are hooked. The young model/mogul is taking the fashion and entertainment world by storm and we think we know why – she’s pretty much perfect.
Because we think you should be just as obsessed…

Good news: your lifelong dream to become a world-renowned supermodel may not be dead just yet.
Lack of diversity has been the norm in the fashion industry, but there’s a new trend that’s popping up on runways and in editorial campaigns. The latest fad in fashion employs faces you wouldn’t think to fit the typical model mold, and now there’s a new agency that prides itself on seeking out models who are much more than just pretty faces.
The London-based Anti-Agency seeks out “girls and boys with personality, individual style and talent” who are interested in being more than just “clothes horses.” Think Cara Delevingne.
Their website reads:
The agency is for people who could’ve been models and decided not to, for people who are too cool to be models and people with real lives on the verge of exploding in music, fashion, art, illustration & creative…
