It's a good year to be Lupita Nyong'o.

She has a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, was just crowned the Most Beautiful Woman in the World - and now, she's also found love.

Having conquered her acting career within two years of making her first ever film, Nyong'o is officially of the market.

She's been linked to everyone from Michael Fassbender to Jared Leto, but the world's most in-demand actress has settled on Somali-born rapper K'naan and is happier than ever.

The pair were spotted at a Brooklyn Italian restaurant after her polarising Prada look at this year's Met Gala.


"They looked very much in love and not afraid to show it," an insider told Us Weekly.

"She loves his humanitarianism. They're both passionate about African issues."


Earlier this year, when given the world's most beautiful woman title by People, she explained that, growing up in Kenya, she believed that only women with 'light skin and flowing, straight hair' are beautiful and is thrilled with her latest accolade - which comes just weeks after being announced as the new face of Lancome.

Lupita said it was " exciting and just a major, major compliment".

"I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen," she added.
