Get Used to the Name! Lupita Nyong’o covers Dazed & Confused Magazine’s February 2014 Issue “Girls Rule the World”



Lupita Nyong'o for Dazed & Confused Magazine February 2014 Issue (1)

You better get used to saying the name because it seems like breakout Kenyan Actress Lupita Nyong’o is going to be everywhere this year.

Covering the February 2014 issue of youth culture magazine, Dazed & Confused, Lupita looks every bit the opposite in colourful clothes. The magazine described the 12 years A Slave actress, who was also recently announced as the new face of Miu Miu, as one of the girls that rule the world.

Read an excerpt from the magazine feature.

Breakout 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong’o, the face of Miu Miu’s SS14 campaign, fronts our “Girls Rule the World” issue in a shoot by Sharif Hamza, styled by Robbie Spencer. We meet the striking Kenyan actress in New York to discuss the making of Steve McQueen’s uncompromising film and how she aims to shatter stereotypes of women in Hollywood.

    She is definitely the new ‘IT GIRL’. But the red dress though :(.

    This girl is beautiful and Western media don’t know what to do with her i.e. they don’t know how to dress her. With all the so called progress fashion has made, it looks like we are back to the Naomi and Tyra early model days when designers and maekup artists didn’t know what to do with them. This girl is a stunning black canvas and rather than work with that, they are going in the opposite direction. Her features are already stunning and in your face, don’t splatter colours or clothes that fight with that, making her look harsh and art galerry/museumish. Like some freak show on display. Gosh, these pictures make me mad. Who was the Art Director of this hot mess? Someone with her features needs makeup and clothes to compliment and soften, which will accentuate her features and make you stop and admire, not stop and glare like some freak show on display.

    But why is she so dark? did they put dark stuffs on her or whts all this?

      Did you ever ask a light skinned person why they’re so light? She’s dark, she’s natural, she’s drop dead gorg, strikingly beautiful and smart. Get used to it n keep it moving. There’s more to life than the shade/color of one’s skin.

      @LoL i think its you that should keep moving or run along. Africa made a valid comment Cos they obviously darkened her skin, shes not this dark normally. These make-up people know how to overdo things sometimes.

    That last pic though………
    Westerners and their definition of how an African woman should like no wonder it’s so hard for our celebs to break into their circles. If you are not on a low cut and as black as coal just forget it.

    Watching her on the red carpet for the golden globes, she looked lighter than this….looks like they smeared a mixture of vaseline and charcoal allover her. The last dress tho…*smh*. But anyways, she is such a stunning girl

    As I was scrolling down, I saw the red dress and mentally gasped. A few more scrolls and then I saw the footwear (tried calling them shoes but simply couldn’t. lol) and now, I just can’t. The people at that magazine are truly dazed and confused.
