Lupita Nyong'o is OFFICIALLY having the best year ever.  She was just named as PEOPLE Magazine's Most Beautiful Person!  Deets inside...

PEOPLE Magazine has just announced its annual 50 Most Beautiful People issue.  And while usually a YBF person gets a mention or two somewhere down the list....this year, the fairest of them all is Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o!

She spoke about the honor in the new issue of PEOPLE, which she's covering, saying:

"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment.  I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen."

Loves it!

The 31-year-old is arguably the best dressed person in Hollywood as well, and she's received every accolade possible this past year for her on screen talent, her off screen style and her message about beauty.

The Mexican born Kenyan beauty revealed how she first equated beauty with what she saw on television:

"Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair.  Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess."

She said her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, "always said I was beautiful...And I finally believed her at some point."

And we're so glad she did!  Because now, this flawless chick can relay that message to all the young women who are struggling to feel secure and worthy in a world so bombarded with unattainable (and skewed) images of beauty.

The 12 Years A Slave star, NonStop star and newest face of Lancôme said that as a teen, she dyed her hair every color -- except blonde -- and even went totally bald.

"It was very strange and very cold!  It was scary but I like to dare myself."

As for the biggest compliment she's received:

"When I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on.  And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing."

Congrats Lupita!  The Most Beautiful issue of PEOPLE is on newsstands this Friday.
