All About Lupita Nyong'o!


"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." -Steve Jobs



Hi guys,

I hope you are doing great! I have been so busy and stressed out the past two weeks that I haven't been able to blog. Working on this post right now actually feels therapeutic ; I guess that's what happens when you are doing what you love to do free of any kind of pressure.

I know most of you guys have heard about Hollywood's new sensation and obsession, Lupita Nyong'o,  as she's been gracing every cover you can think of.  I came across her magazine spread with Vogue Italia and I was so compelled to share some of her gorgeous photos  with you.

I love Lupita, she's my African queen! It's rather refreshing to see the media focusing their attention on someone with great talent and she's stunning on top of it - sheer African beauty! If you haven't watched 12 Years A Slave yet, you should definitely see it; it's a very powerful movie.

Lupita's story is inspiring because it's all about pursuing your dreams even when others do not believe in them; the most important thing is that you believe in yourself - all you need is one person to say yes and it could change your life forever. Even if she didn't do another movie, she could still work this modeling thing as she is currently the new face of Miu Miu 2014 campaign.

The following is a gallery of Lupita's magazine spread with Vogue Italia, showcasing her fun, fresh and flirty side, followed by some of my favorite red carpet moments and other gorgeous magazine covers.

If you missed some of the Lupita's break-taking red carpet looks,below are some of my favourite. Her stylist, Micaela Erlanger, is definitely doing a fabulous job picking out these gorgeous colorful and vibrant dresses that complement her complexion to perfection. What do you guys think?collage

Now these photos below are some of my favorite from the many magazine spreads that Lupita has been gracing lately; they are so many of them, I wanted to include them all but obviously I couldn't do that :-). Which one is your favorite look?
