Of course Lupita Nyong’o has the most amazing first Instagram photo ever

We’re in love with her talent, beautiful skin, and grace, and as far as we’re concerned, Lupita Nyong’o is as close to perfect as one could get. Oh, but we’re not the only ones — her castmates feel the same way about her as we do.

Because we’re obsessed, we scrolled 147 weeks down her Instagram feed to see what the Queen of Katwe star was up to when she first joined the social media platform. And just as we expected, Lupita’s very first post is probably the best one we’ve ever seen.

Lupita shared her very first Instagram photo with media maven Oprah Winfrey!


And Lupita let’s us know just how excited she was to to see the legend in her caption!

"A memory for all time: when I met one of my heroes, Oprah!" she writes.

By the looks of things, Lupita played it pretty cool when cozying up to one of her heroes. And it’s no coincidence that just 12 weeks later Lupita, along with her baby bro, assisted pals Ellen DeGeneres, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence with creating one of the most epic ~usies~ to grace the interwebs during the 2014 Oscar awards show.

Waaaaaaay in the back, but we can spot that smile from anywhere!
