STYLE ICON: LUPITA NYONG’O

If you don’t know who Lupita Nyong’o is, you have been living under a rock for the past couple of months! No, seriously?? Where have you been??

Lupita is a Mexican born Kenyan actress who recently graduated from Yale University School of Drama’s Acting Program.  She received outstanding reviews for her critically acclaimed performance in 12 years of slaves.  Ever since her breakthrough performance, Lupita Nyong’o has been gracing the red carpets events with her amazing style with the help of her stylist Micaela Erlanger! And how many magazine covers did she score for the last months?

Lupita has not been afraid to wear bold colors that vibrate against her dark skin. She’s worn sleek every kind of style, from crop tops to plunging necklines, to classic silhouettes. She has been nominated for an Oscar but I think many people will agree that she deserves an Award for her fashion sense. Every eye will be on her this Sunday at the Oscars.

Lupita is the perfect example of how one’s life can change in the blink of an eye! I wish her success not only with her acting career but also with her undeniable sense of style.

Can’t wait to see what she will wear tonight at the Oscars!

Until next time,

xoxo
