Lupita Nyong’o’s biggest recent projects (read: Star Wars and The Jungle Book) aren’t giving the Academy Award-winning actress much screen time, but that hasn’t stopped her from bringing her inner and outer beauty out to play in 2016.

This month, Nyong’o graces the cover of InStyle for the first time and today she shared her gorgeous cover with the world:

In fact, the 33-year-old has a whole lot to celebrate. She currently has a starring role in Eclipsed, a Broadway play written by The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira about the wives of a Liberian rebel officer. (Nyong’o’s performance as “The Girl” has earned her rave reviews.) And later this year, she will appear in Queen of Katwe, a biopic about Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi. Plus, she’s filming the next installment in the record-shattering Star Wars trilogy, due in 2017, which sees her providing voice work for the super-wise Maz Kanata.

In other words, it’s a great time to be Lupita Nyong’o! Get it girl!
