The word on everyone’s lips these days is…a name actually: Lupita Nyong’o to be precise! This name is now synonymous with gorgeous high fashion, especially on red carpets and glamorous events.
Born Lupita Amondi Nyong'o, this 30 year old Kenyan actress made her American film debut in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave as ‘Patsey’. A role for which she received critical acclaim and won awards for. She is also tipped for the Oscars too.
With a face so pretty and fresh that it leaves us speechless, Lupita is one of the very few women in the world who can pull off a shaved head glamorously. We are also hailing her as the next fashionista with tons of style and if what we have seen so far on the red carpet is anything to go by, then we are sure you will agree that there’s is more to expect from this bombshell of an actress.
Lupita has graced the red carpet this past month kitted out in an array of top designers and we are yet to see any of them repeated. The actress who shares a stylist with another actress, Michelle Dockery of 'Downtown Abbey', is one of the most luckiest girls ever and has had some right down knockout red carpet numbers with an impressive list of designers worn so far, including; Rodarte, Prada, Christopher Kane, Stella McCartney,, Rouland Mouret, J.Mendel, Mui Mui and top favourites, Mary Katrantzou graphic prints and the Red Caped Ralph Lauren dress, to name a few.
The Business Minded woman... Lupita shows she can look business and ladylike on the red carpet. The burnt orange dress by Anthony Berardi, The Blue Roland Mouret and the gorgeous Stella McCartney's number are all testament to her sense of style and poise.....
Colour me Preetee...! The lady clearly loves her colours, be they bright and happy or cool and classic whites.....and why not? If we had gorgeous skin hue like hers, we would too. This yellow dress by J.Mendel is particularly flavorsome on the actress.
One of the most exciting things about Lupita, is her ability to switch from serious to playfull in her styles of fashion. Here she is in very cute dresses that bring out the 'girly' in her while keeping her cool composure at the same time!
As a black woman in the public eye, we are very proud of her for upholding her heritage and the natural look in all its glory, especially recently, when there has been a lot of talk surrounding black women who bleach their skin. It is truly refreshing to see someone as pretty as her, shoot down that myth that only fair skin is beautiful.
The lady in Red....here, the Sexy Screen Siren rocks a fabulous caped gown by Ralph Lauren. The Colour is oh so exquisite on her skin tone, and that hair.....!! Yes Lupita, you are definitely a Winner.
Lupita Nyong’o is clearly very beautiful as she is talented and although there has been quite a bit of hype surrounding her recently, her acting career is no new thing. She has been around film sets and part of production crews for a while now. As well as acting, she is also a director. In 2009, Lupita wrote, produced and directed a short documentary film, ‘In My Genes’, which was played at many film festivals, documenting the treatment of the Albino persons in Kenya.
Due to appear in Liam Neeson’s upcoming film, ‘Non-Stop’, we can’t wait to see what this beautiful actress will bring to the fashion table to excite us and make our envy as green as one of her many numbers.
Lupita, queen of fashion and Ebony beauty, we hail you!.
