Lupita Nyong'o was tapped to cover the November 2018 issue of VOGUE Spain, dubbed "The Space Odyssey, Finger Comb issue," and chick is giving us editorial chills!

The Oscar winning actress is flawlessly gorgeous in a captivating cover and beautifully shot spread for the magazine. And she's taking the cover girl crown.

Donning her natural hair, the Black Panther actress gets up close and personal with her editorials that show off her stunning features. Not only are we (and every other black girl) fawning over her knock out spread, Lupita herself is extra excited about it. She hopped on Instagram to share the cover and a few flicks from the spread with her fans, captioning, "I am so proud of this cover story! ¡Que orgullo me da este número! Thank you @voguespain for celebrating me and my work by making me your cover girl this #voguenoviembre!"

While thanking everyone on the VOGUE Spain team, it seems the 12 Years A Slave actress threw subtle shade at Grazia Magazine - at least, that kinky hair comment makes it seem that way.

"And thank you for celebrating my kinky hair for real!," she captioned.

The 34-year-old actress called out Grazia magazine last month after they airbrushed her hair off the cover. The photoshop job was apparently to make her "fit a more Eurocentric notion" of beauty.

Here's what she said:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh
