Lupita Nyong'o became a household name (that no one can still pronounce) after she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for "12 Years a Slave" and now she's garnered another honor.

Nyong'o has just topped the list for People magazine's annual "Most Beautiful" list.

The 31-year-old says when she was little she equated beauty with what she saw on TV.

Lupita says that beauty meant "light skin and long, flowing, straight hair." But, "[my mother] always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point."

Some of the other women on this year's list are Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianna Margulies, Keri Russell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Mindy Kaling, Pink, Amber Heard, Gabrielle Union, Molly Sims, Stacy Keibler and Kerry Washington.
