Luipta Nyog'o for InStyle Magazine November 2013 - BellaNaija - November 2013005She has been hot on the Hollywood scene for some time and she doesn’t seem to be slowing down. I am talking about hot Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o.

After her years in the movie business and her killer role playing Patsey in the highly acclaimed film 12 Years A Slave, the “Kenyan Wonder Kid” as she is fondly called has been featured in popular American fashion magazine - InStyle Magazine‘s fashion editorial titled “Swept Away“.

The magazine described the stunning actress as “the Star of the much-buzzed-about film 12 Years A Slave,” who ”embraces the bold in a passionate mix of vibrant colours and uninhabited prints. Utterly riveting“. For the editorial Lupita rocks stunning fashion pieces from Prada, Gucci, Rochas, Dior, Suna, Missoni, J Mendel, Chanel & Reed Krakoff.

Read an excerpt from the feature tagged “Coed to Co-Star” and “Keeping it Real“.

“Just before graduating from Yale school of Drama, Lupita Nyong’o, who hails from Kenya, auditioned for the film 12 Years A Slave, based on the true story of Solomon Northup, who was kidnapped in 1841 and sold into bondage. “I had to go to an emotional place, and it was beyond hard,” says Nyong’o of her character, Patsey, an abused slave who works along Northup on a plantation. “But I felt a connection in my gut – I had to play this part.”"
“After learning that she nabbed the role, landing her alongside co-stars Brad Pitt and Micheal Fassbender, an ecstatic Nyong’o placed a (very) late night call to her family in Kenya. Her dad got the news first. “I said, Daddy, guess what? I’m going to be in a movie with Brad Pitt.”"

See the editorial below.

        • Iyke November 20, 2013 at 9:12 AM

          Thank you Samantha. I am indeed humbled!
          The truth is that I am graced with the embrace of ancestral voices in my head… Spirited angels that gather to keep me mentally and emotionally feed. Resolved…resolute…regimented and unflinching in their charge…their efforts on my behalf have created the foundation of my life’s rewards. Voices that supply inspiration…define aspirations and affirmation when needed…desired. Breathing new life in my own voice…giving me more than a reason of hope…to follow my heart…committed to my best self. Never giving up or failing to try…

    • Felinda November 19, 2013 at 9:51 PM

      Here this Nollywood, she invested to attend Yale Drama school like Sanaa Lathan, Joy Bryant and Angela BAssett, and it paid off, so instead of investing in tech gadgets, shoes, horse hair and designer clothes when the majority can even articulate themselves well (as u all will say “A pair of wrist watches”, “luxurious people “REVOLVING” around world “, phonet babes), hope u will reconsider taking time off to polish your craft instead of shoving your mediocre acting down our throats, and bombarding us with red carpet poses, in hopes we may forget u CANNOT ACT. This lady, The new Hollywood IT girl did excellent in 12 slave. Love her thats shes so natural, no weave, 100% true African Beauty. Hope she at least gets an oscar nomination in 2014 oscars. Shes great.

      Oh my gosh, so I just read her profile in wikipedia and come to find out this is VERY FIRST MAJOR FILM FEATURE???, No way, seriously? I am shocked and beyond impressed. She only graduate yale drama school in 2012. This is so interesting. Whoever casted her for this role did a great job. See, its never too late to go back to school to polish your craft. Whao I still cant get over the fact that this is her first major film and she nailed it like she did. #StandingOvation Lupita
