Awards season is gearing up and we now know who will be this year’s “it girl” — Gugu Mbatha-Raw!
The gorgeous actress is no stranger to the big screen, she was flawless in Belle last year, but with her leading role in Beyond The Lights this year, her star is continuing to rise.
It seems as though Elle magazine agrees and has added her to their coveted “Women In Hollywood” list. Gugu joins Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Banks, Annette Bening, Tina Fey, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Lange and Brie Larson in the prestigious category of the most talented names in film for 2014. Check out her stunning cover and excerpts from her interview on the next page.
