Lupita Nyong’o had the opportunity to showcase her flawless beauty in a new magazine shoot with Harper’s Bazaar U.K., and she did not disappoint with a breath-taking cover and gorgeous spread.

Nyong’o posed in a white Fendi Flower Nappa Leather dress, which featured floral appliqués and a daring front slip. She accentuated the frock with a Chopard ring and a purple orchid in her hair.

The Oscar-winning actress was dubbed “The New Face of Beauty” as she flashed her pearly whites at photographer Alexi Lubormirski, but the fame hasn’t quite grown on Nyong’o yet.

“You know, I thought it would come to an end after the Oscars. I thought the Oscars would come and go and then all of a sudden everything would be back to normal and I’d be back in my apartment,” she reveals in the May 2015 issue of Bazaar.

As for her poignant acceptance speeches, the Kenyan beauty wishes she didn’t share so much of herself as she does.

“I wish that I took it more lightly sometimes because it costs a lot,” she says. “Which is why I can’t do those speeches every weekend, because it costs a lot to share from such a deep place, if you will. But I don’t know how to speak from any other place. Kenyans are very ceremonial. There is a formality that comes with gatherings and comes from our colonial conditioning… Oratory is something that’s really important to Kenyans, the way one speaks to the masses, it’s an art almost.”

The May issue of Harper’s Bazaar U.K. hits newsstands on April 2.
