All I want in life is to be one one bajillionth as glamorous at my very best and most composed as Lupita Nyong’o is whilst paralyzed by fear.

Lupita posted a behind-the-scenes video of a Vogue photo shoot to Instagram yesterday with the caption

#bts: rehearsal for the snake shot. Nobody said being on the cover would be easy. #FightYourFearAndWin. (DOP and laughter by @rscapellan)

And for the truly impressive feat, she was able to turn that scurrying scampering fear into this badassery:

Lupita: 1. Snake: 0.

(Just kidding, snakes: a million. The snakes will always win. They are slithery demons.)
