People magazine has named Lupita Nyong’o as the “World’s Most Beautiful” for 2014.

The 31-year-old actress, who won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in “12 Years a Slave,” tops the magazine’s list, announced Wednesday.

Commenting on being selected for this year’s cover, Nyong’o says: “It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen.”

Trials delayed

•A South Florida judge has delayed the trial of pop star Justin Bieber on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license until July.

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield on Wednesday granted a motion for a postponement sought by Bieber’s lawyers. His attorney Roy Black said more time was needed to examine evidence and make decisions about how to proceed.
