By now, you've likely seen Chadwick Boseman's Rolling Stone cover, and if you haven't, here it is:



You're welcome.

The image has left Twitter completely dehydrated: 









This week, Boseman's Black Panther co-star, Lupita Nyong'o, deigned to double the world's delight, and recreated the instantly iconic image on Instagram:




Imitation is the best form of flattery: @chadwickboseman I admire your quiet, confident, regal nature. You brought the wealth of all your knowledge, wisdom and physicality to T'Challa. You led us into the land of Wakanda without ego, without pretense, without fear. We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your grueling workout regimen. And I will never get enough of the way you say the word "because." We celebrate BREAKING BOX OFFICE RECORDS with @blackpanther for many reasons, but chief among them is because we had you as our king. Enkosi Kumkani!! And congratulations on your @rollingstone cover. From someone who loves you. #CoverCosplay My 📷 by @vernonfrancois Chadwick's by Norman Jean Roy #BlackPanther #WakandaForever

She also wrote Boseman a sweet note, about how much she admires, loves and appreciates him. 

"You led us into the land of Wakanda without ego, without pretense, without fear. We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your grueling workout regimen," Nyong'o wrote before signing off with an incredibly sweet, "From someone who loves you." 

The Rolling Stone cover redux is actually Lupita's second cover photo tribute. The actress also recreated Michael B. Jordan's British GQ cover:



Lupita has also been lauded for covers of her own, including the cover of Allure and Essence; and with Black Panther's runaway success, there are sure to be more covers to come.
