Having previously covered the U.K. edition, Lupita Nyong'o lands her first cover of 'Elle' magazine in the U.S. for their annual Women In Hollywood issue, which sees her dishes on finding success despite being told her skin tone would hold her back.
"I grew up with a very limited mirror of myself," the Academy Award winner tells the publication. I watched a lot of TV, but the people on it were always light skinned. And now I have a platform that takes me into people's houses and onto the pages of their magazines."
Other cover stars for the November issue include Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Anna Kendrick, Aja Naomi King, Felicity Jones, Kathy Bates and the Queen, Helen Mirren.
