Just like any female she likes it when someone compliments her on her looks. But she never lets pride run away with her – she is a down-to-earth person, friendly and easy to get along with. When asked whom she most admires and regards beautiful, Lupita said that her idol is Alek Wek. Lupita admits that Alek‘s appearance on the international scene gave her confusing feelings. She adores Wek for her talent and beauty but at the same time she sees her as a rival and opponent. On the other hand, Lupita likes the challenge and, knowing that there is a strong competitor, she strives to be even better at what and who she is which doesn’t let her stagnate.
