Arguably the most buzzed-about androgynous model, Andreja Pejić has an impressive track record of bending gender roles. Case in point: She stunned audiences as a male model wearing a women’s bridal look during Jean Paul Gaultier’s 2011 haute couture show. But her latest (and most courageous) move involves life off the runway. Andreja, formerly Andrej, recently announced that she underwent sex reassignment surgery earlier this year.

With an Oscar, Miu Miu and Lancôme partnerships, and the unwavering admiration of the world’s fashion elite in the bag, Lupita Nyong’o has had a banner year. And today, it got even better as the 31-year-old Kenyan-Mexican actress was awarded the top spot on PEOPLE magazine’s annual “Most Beautiful” list.

Nyong’o first won hearts around the world as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 2013 film 12 Years a Slave, and she hasn’t stopped since. That’s thanks, in large part, to her unique brand of humility (who could forget her “Dreams do come true” speech at the Academy Awards?), but also her chameleon-like ability to stun in everything from Givenchy to Giambattista Valli. A megawatt star from humble beginnings whose haute couture is outshone only by her heart? That’s just, well, beautiful.
