It’s official we have a new style icon by the name of Lupita Nyong’o. Not content with her Screen Actors Guild Award for her spectacular performance in Steve McQueen’s “12 Years A Slave”, the 30 year old Yale Drama School graduate’s spectacular rise in the fashion stakes is nothing short of remarkable. Who can forget ‘that’ red Ralph Lauren dress at the Golden Globes which kick-started fashionistas frenzy that commanded rave reviews by various lifestyle journals, internet bloggers and fashion bible Vogue. Though she lost out to Jennifer Lawrence at the Globes our East African diva is tipped to win the ultimate prize next month at the Oscars.
And guess who should be credited with setting her acting juices on fire? Ralph Fiennes. Nyong’o says: “He asked me what I wanted to do with my life, and so I very shyly said I wanted to be an actor too, and he sighed deeply and said, ‘Lupita, only act if you can’t breathe without it.”
Loving everything about this girl, we were swayed by her unassuming innate sense of style, ability to pull it out of the bag on every occasion, and the simple chicness of her style that screams effortless glam – I wear this dress it doesn’t wear me. In an interview with Vulture Online, on her sense of style, the black beauty states: “It was not my agenda at all! But it’s fun, and I’m flattered that everyone is digging my style. It’s great to have something to dress up for. You know, I spent three years in slacks at drama school, so now I like putting a dress on.”
With fashion label endorsement from PRADA, Lupita is the face of the brands Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, we love everything Lupita and here are some of our fave looks by the fashionista and we look forward to seeing more from Lupita fashion and movie wise!
Does she ever put her perfectly pedicured foot wrong? The answer is a resounding NO! Queen B – or as we call her at DS HQ our ‘Virgoan Spiritual Sister’ Beyonce, is one hot to trot inspirational diva. Straight off her still twitch if you can’t dance performance at the super bowl (half-time), she has now graced the March cover [Power 2013] of fashion bible Vogue. In the issue she talks mama-hood , her new album and all things that make you want to love her some more. Oh and did we mention the divalicious retro-inspired shoot directed by Patrick Demarchelier? Check this out…..

The Kardashian / Jenner sisters join other top tier celebrity Kandee fans both in the UK and US which include Rita Ora, Jessie J, Little Mix, Nicola Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Tulisa, Katy B, Dionne Bromfield and Ana Mulvoy Ten to name but a few.
Always pushing the boundaries, British CEO and designer Josh Wayman, or “Mr Kandee” as he is famously known is yet again following his fashion philosophy of setting trends instead of merely following them. The most recent Kandee Shoes Spring/Summer 2012 collection “LOUD” is described as ‘fearless and sexy,’ is the twenty-two year olds brightest and boldest yet. His approach to fashion is definitely working – with an endless list of celebrity fans, Kandee Shoes have sold out every season thus far. Their high end shoe collections regularly appear in major fashion publications such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Grazia and Kandee have been prominent features on the catwalks of both Barcelona and London Fashion Week.
With an increasing amount of A-List celebrity fans and sell-out collections, it is no surprise that the Kandee Shoes designer himself Josh Wayman is being labeled by industry insiders as ‘the Mark Zuckerberg of shoes.’
