Lupita Nyong’o may have only come on our radar after her Oscar-winning

turn in 12 Years A Slave, but the gorgeous Mexican-Kenyan actress has

more than established herself as one of Hollywood’s hottest young stars.


up in Kenya and Mexico, the former Production Assistant followed her

dreams to act, landing her breakthrough role in 12 Years A Slave

straight after drama school. Gracing awards season with her

multi-coloured designer gowns, bright and breezy make-up and enviable

fit bod, the 32-year-old actress landed on many a best dressed list and

straight into our hearts.

Her revolving wardrobe of high fashion

awards ensembles (from Ralph Lauren’s caped Golden Globes dress to her

fairytale Prada Oscars gown) and well-chosen red carpet shorts suits and

minis made her one of Hollywood’s elite. After being named People’s

Magazine’s Most Beautiful in 2014, she even went on to land a campaign

with L’Oreal, becoming the first African celebrity to become the face of

the luxury French beauty brand.

Lupita’s fashion credentials just keep climbing and we can’t wait to see which designer label she’s wowing in next.
