There is no doubt Lupita Nyong’o is the “It Girl” of the moment, not only because of her stunning role in 12 Years of A Slave -that earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination in the upcoming Oscars- but also because of her stunning and stylish red carpet looks which has been making all the media buzz about her. That is why her gig as the Bristish magazine Dazed & Confused cover girl for the month of February is so timely because everyone just wants to know her.
More importantly, what I like on the editorial is that there’s no racial label attached to it. Nyong’o is simply a beautiful woman, a talented actress and a burgeoning style icon. Is that not enough?
When the awards season is over, I will definitely do a round-up post of Lupita Nyong’o red carpet looks.
