English Actress, Gugu Mbatha-Raw stunned with her beauty throughout the newly released film Beyond the Lights.
Gugu’s character Noni, plays a modern day superstar, resembling the likes of todays Rihanna and Beyonce, who succumbs to the pressures of the industry and allows her label and money hungry-narcissistic-stage mother, Macy Jean (Minnie Driver) who acts more like Noni’s pimp than her mother, to control her destiny.
As soon as Gugu gets on screen, you’re drawn to her super glam, provocative, but golden goddess look. She rocks a smoky eye, black smoldering eye liner and a nude lip. The girl is hot! But she’s not done yet. Noni finds love and her true self under allll that diva!
The theater was in an uproar when Gugu’s character proceeds to remove her hair tracks and reveal her gorgeous and vivacious curls! She then donned a natural, healthy look and I must say, she is a stunner. Lively curls, minimal makeup with a statement lip… The makeup team knew what they were doing. She is even more extraordinary after this transformation! Definitely the apex of the film… Actually this was probably the only interesting thing about the film… Despite the screams and deep exhales every time Nate Parker appeared without his shirt; the story line was a bit disappointing.
But back to the beauty. Gugu was also recently slaying the cover of Elle magazine’s November 2014 issue with slicked back hair and a bold coral lip, when she talks about what attracted her to the film:
“One of the things that drew me to the project was the relationship between mother and daughter— that ‘mom-ager’ dynamic—because I grew up with a single mom, though my dad has definitely been in my life a lot. But my mom couldn’t be more different from Minnie Driver’s character. I was the pushy child, the one who wanted to be doing ballet and jazz and tap and everything.”
Not only is she alluring but she is multi talented. The new “It” girl if you ask me.
