Bold Beauty

Bold Beauty The "g" in her name might be soft but when it comes to fashion choices, Lupita Nyong’o is nothing short of bold. She keeps it bright and bold with her style whether, she’s donning a stunning red gown at the Golden Globes or a gorgeous turquoise dress with floral embroidered neckline at the SAG awards. Lupita’s love for colour goes above and beyond as well! It’s not just limited to her wardrobe and she isn’t afraid to bring out her good looks with coloured eyeshadows as loud as her clothes. Lupita does it bold and she does it right! Is there anything this beauty can’t wear?


Belle of the Oscars

Belle of the Oscars I bet if you had listened carefully you would have heard a collective draw of breaths and jaws dropping from all over the world when the ever so elegant Lupita Nyong’o stepped out in a Nairobi blue gown for the 86th Academy Awards. Lupita can do no wrong when it comes to her fashion-forward choices and she once again showed no one can do graceful quite like her. She swished her gown right into the hearts of many and even had memes sprouting over the internet for her uncanny similarity to Cinderella! Now that is a fairy tale come true!


Night-Shaded Skin

Night-Shaded Skin The 31-year-old’s flawless dark chocolate skin has just about everyone fawning over and the glowing contrast of her skin against her striking colour choices is what makes her all the more beautiful. Lupita radiates confidence but she admitted there was a time when she felt un-beautiful and prayed that she would wake up lighter skinned. Her honesty in battling with insecurities that are all too familiar with you and me makes her relatable which is just another reason why we adore her! Check out the video where Lupita shares about embracing her "night-shaded" skin.



Natural It’s inspiring when a celebrity works the "natural" and Lupita does just that with her short natural hair. I am not against weaves, extensions, curling or straightening, but if you’re like me and have altered you hair in one way or another to feel more beautiful, then you will realize that these beauty regimes which we have sub-consciously weaved into daily habits can make us feel a little less confident when we have to make do without them. Lupita teaches us that natural beauty comes in all forms and different is beautiful. All you have to do is work what you got!


Eloquent Speaker

Eloquent Speaker The first time I started crushing on Lupita was when I heard her speak; such class, such candid spontaneity in her tone and she’s a phenomenon when it comes to stringing words together that tugs at heartstrings. If you heard her acceptance speech at the Oscars you would know what I’m talking about. The highlight of her speech was when she said "It doesn't escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else's." But of course she had to conclude with an inspiring line that would leave your eyes welled up with tears: "When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you're from, your dreams are valid."



Down-to-Earth She has a personality as infectious as her smile which makes Lupita … AWESOME! When Jennifer Lawrence jokingly tried to steal her Oscar back stage, Lupita played a long showing she too knows how to have fun. And how can you forget when she got up to dance to Pharrell Williams’ performance of "Happy." Oh, stop being so perfect already, Lupita!


Starstruck Celeb

Starstruck Celeb You just got to love when a celebrity gets starstruck, makes them no different from you and me! Lupita has a checklist for all the celebs she wants to meet and she’s checking them off one by one with a selfie on Instagram. If you didn’t already know about her Instagram, you can follow her @lupitanyongo and her pictures will give you more reasons to love her!

Lupita Nyong’o is a stunning beauty inside-out and you can’t help but think she’s flawless in almost every sense. Her humble attitude even with her wide success in her very first role in a film and a fashion darling on red carpets continues to woo the hearts of many. This is just the beginning of Lupita and I wonder what else this girl will leave us in awe with! So tell me, have you been smitten yet, is Lupita Nyong’o your latest girl crush?
