Lupita Nyong'o: ELLE France's Latest Summer Cover Girl

The lovely Lupita Nyong'o lands herself yet another magazine cover, and this time, she's facing the fashion world sunny side up.

The Oscar-winner wows in a canary yellow, asymmetric Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown on the cover of Elle France's summer issue. The spread deems the 31-year-old '12 Years a Slave' actress a "superstar," and inside, she opens up about her remarkable year.

Beyond her breakthrough success, Lupita's also graced Vogue's July cover, and has been named the latest face of Lancome.

Next up, the Yale alum will appear in "Star Wars: Episode VII," and lend her vocal talents to "The Jungle Book" opposite Scarlett Johansson and Idris Elba.
