Lupita Nyong’o Teams Up With Elmo And Sesame Street To Teach Kids To Love The Skin They’re In

September 16, 2014  |  


I’m sure you’re thinking that it’s been a while since you’ve seen Lupita Nyong’o, but the Academy Award winner has been super busy! She’s working on the new Star Wars: Episode VII movie with J.J. Abrams and focusing on being a fabulous spokeswoman for Lancôme. But we’re happy to provide you with your fix of the beauty, who has come out of hiding to tape an absolutely adorable segment on “Sesame Street.” Alongside Elmo, Nyong’o spoke about skin, the benefits of it, and the importance of loving it, no matter the shade or color. Even though it was filmed for the kids, it delivers a message any and everyone can appreciate, whether your skin looks like Nyong’o’s…or is covered in red fur like Elmo’s. Ha!

Check out the adorable clip of their interaction below. Lupita Nyong’o on Sesame Street is just the cutest thing.

And remember how we were talking about Nyong’o being busy with her responsibilities as a spokeswoman for Lancôme? Well, her newest ad came out last week and she looked stunning–as usual.
