  • The 'It Girl' of the moment perfectly showcased how fun fashion week can be

    Lupita Nyong’o is having a major moment right now. And it’s not just because she has impeccable style or because she just won her first Academy Award.

    (Although those things are pretty major, too.)

    It’s also because she just might be the coolest girl ever.

    The 31-year-old actress flew to Paris this week to hit up Fashion Week, and her Instagram selfies from the Miu Miu show reminded us that runway shows aren’t always super serious. (Despite what Anna Wintour might think.)

    Lupita perfectly captured the silly side of PFW, posting adorable selfies with her new A-list pals.

    ‘#MiuMiu selfie with the sensational Rihanna @badgalriri. #Paris,’ she wrote.

    But it wasn’t just RiRi logging girl time with Lupita.

    She shared this sweet collage of her spending time with The Wolf Of Wall Street star Margot Robbie (and her new brunette hair), US actress Elizabeth Olsen and the costars of Blue Is The Warmest Colour, Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos.

    Unfortunately, our girl crush didn’t have time to snap pics with every A-lister in attendance. She missed out on a photo opp with Elle Fanning, who looked super chic in a houndstooth dress and floral courts.

    And she also steered clear of our hair idol Jared Leto. Perhaps there was some truth to those rumours that they had a pre-Oscars fling?
