It has been reported that Lupita Nyong’o delivers a performance in “12 Years A Slave” that is nothing short of extraordinary. And if the Kenyan actress’ talent, crazy Oscar buzz and stunning good looks haven’t caught your attention, then her style certainly will.
The 30-year-old star turned heads recently in a bright yellow gown by J Mendel while being honored at the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards. And while vibrant colors are definitely a go-to style choice for the Yale Drama School graduate, we’ve also seen her rock bold prints like a champ.
Nyong’o was born in Mexico, raised in Kenya and educated in the USA. She is a graduate of the Yale University School of Drama’s Acting program.
But beyond her amazing ensembles, Lupita’s natural beauty is what really shines through. Her petite yet toned frame, flawless skin and chic TWA (teeny weeny Afro) make her a standout star that we can’t wait to see more of. She will be one to watch.
