  • Lupita Nyong'o will take to the stage this summer to present an award for the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Consider that her absolute fashion approval.

    Lupita Nyong’o floored us with her fashion throughout awards season and it hasn’t gone unnoticed as the actress has been announced as one of the stylish presenters for this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards.

    On hand to congratulate the winner of the Womenswear Designer of the Year award, the 12 Years A Slave star will be taking to the New York stage in no doubt another awe-inspiring frock.
    Lupita’s red carpet hits speak volumes for her style credentials. Having topped countless best dressed lists (remember that mint Oscars dress?) and winning over even the most critical of industry eyes, we can totally see why the fashion-fierce 31-year-old has been handpicked to offer up one of the most prestigious awards.

    Will she go for the Hollywood opulence we’ve been wowed by in the past or an off-beat frock that’ll make a colourful statement?
    Either way, we’re already anticipating something beautiful because with this year’s nominees including Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra and Marc Jacobs, you can rest assured her sartorial gown will fall nothing short of show-stopping.
