Diamond of the Week (3/07/2014)


The Diamond of the Week award goes to:

Lupita Nyong’o

For those of you who didn’t get a chance to tune into the 86th Oscars award show on March the 2nd, you definitely missed a monumental moment when Lupita Nyong’o won an Oscar for her supporting role in the movie, 12 Years a Slave. This is the first time that I have ever honored someone for the Diamond of the Week award twice but I would be an idiot if I didn’t recognize Lupita’s Oscar win. Everyone knows that an Oscar is the most prestigious award to win and I was just too thrilled to see this beautiful Black woman grace the stage to receive it. She is definitely a shining star and before you know it, little girls everywhere will want to be just like her. 🙂

“No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”–Lupita
