Anyone who’s seen 12 Years A Slave will have noticed the intense presence of Lupita Nyong’o on screen. Her performance is very powerful and I immediately wanted who know who this actress was. This is her debut in american cinema and hopefully we’ll be seeing a lot more of her on the big screen.
Lupita Nyong’o is a Kenyan actress born in Mexico and a Yale School of Drama graduate (her undergrad was Film and African studies). She has also directed (and produced & edited) a documentary (In My Genes) and is a model (she can be seen in Miu Miu’s latest campaign). Her work has already been recognized as she has won Best Supporting Actress at Screen Actors Guild Awards, Broadcast Film Critics and has been nominated for several other awards such as the Golden Globes, Bafta’s and Oscar.
This award season has been blessed with Lupita’s amazing dresses. She always looks stunning and has made some bold choices. Below you can see just how beautiful she looked at the Golden Globes and Critic’s Choice Awards. Can’t wait to see what she’ll wear to the Academy Awards (and I hope she wins Best Supporting Actress).
