Lupita Nyong’o‘s Cinderella story culminated with a win for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars on Sunday night, and now she’s just reaping the benefits of being one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. We may be biased, but a golden statue is nothing compared to selfies with a certain Barbadian superstar, right?
The 12 Years a Slave star has made it a point to snap adorable photos with celebrities at award shows and industry events. Now that she’s enjoying some well-deserved time off that hasn’t changed, only her selfie co-stars have transitioned from Cate Blanchett and Julia Roberts to stylish It Girls like Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux (of Blue Is the Warmest Color), Margot Robbie and Elizabeth Olsen.
Fresh off her Oscar win and Ellen appearance, Lupita jetted to Paris to take in some fashion shows, meeting the only bad gal we’re dying to befriend (Rihanna!) in the process. If you need more evidence that Lupita is the world’s sweetheart, currently living her Oprah-approved, absolute best life, look no further than the photo above. The only thing that could top it would be a shot of Lupita being nuzzled in Beyoncé‘s arms–but that’s probably on her agenda for the weekend.
Check out some of Lupita’s most memorable photos from award season, above, and contemplate how her public approval rating could possibly ever falter.
