We'll take a stack of copies, please! Lupita Nyong'o is on the cover of the latest issue of ELLE France and she looks drop-dead gorgeous. 

With her hands on her hips and sporting an open-mouthed grin, Nyong'o stuns in a bright yellow dress against a red backdrop. The Giambattista Valli gown is pulled from the Fall 2013 couture collection and features a sheer overlay on the bodice and a voluminous lace high-low skirt. 

The Oscar-winning actress, 31, lets the dress shine with a simple pair of diamond stud earrings and a classic red lip.

Nyong'o is labeled a "Superstar" on the July issue and heralded for her ability to inspire with her quick rise to fame. 

After her star-making role as Patsey in 2013's 12 Years a Slave alongside Brad Pitt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Michael Fassbender, Nyong'o has become an in-demand actress and spokesperson. She booked a part in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII and is leading a film adaptation of the critically acclaimed novel Americanah

The celebrated beauty was also named the new face of Lancôme earlier this year, and represented Miu Miu in its spring ads.
