The May cover of Harper's Bazaar UK features none other than Lupita Nyong'o, flashing her bright smile and glowing skin (now brought to you by Lancôme). In the issue, she talks about her extremely fast rise to first-name-level fame, saying, "I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I'd be back in my apartment."
