Style Crush…Our FAVE Style Icon – Lupita Nyong’o

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!
