On being voted People magazine's most beautiful woman in the world 2014…
I was stunned. It’s not every morning you wake by being the most beautiful in the world! I was happy for little girls of color.This enhances them, show them that they too can exist on the public stage.
On being the first black woman ambassador for Lancôme…
It’s very flattering. Lancôme is looking for individuals of strong personalities, and today will address a wider range feminine, both in terms of age as ethnically. Women from around the world tell me that Lancôme campaigns have changed their vision of themselves. It is gratifying to know that my example may have enabled them to finally feel watched and considered.
On being the first African woman to win an Oscar
Are you kidding? Yes of course! There are still mornings when I laugh thinking about it, so it’s unlikely. Last June, I returned to Kenya and I witnessed the impact of the award on the country. The beauty of this time lies in the dream that I made for others. This is what fills me with pride.
