Lupita Nyong'o - Vogue America - June 2014 - 01
It’s red carpet and screen queen Lupita Nyong’o.

The Kenyan actress lands her first ever Vogue cover. The BN Style team guessed she would get the coveted September issue, but Vogue America decided to let her takeover July.

On the cover, Lupita smoulders in a print dress with a plunging neckline and cut outs.

In the editorial spread, she rocks pieces by Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Jonathan Saunders, Prada, T by Alexander Wang and J. Crew.

    Lupita……….Congrats Girl!. You are like the Queen of Africa. You do make black so so beautiful. Beauty does come in Different colours. I do not blame girls that bleach……..Even our Nigerian men love and prefer the lighter ladies. I think the issue with bleaching, is if you don’t spend good money doing it, then you look funny. I know a lot of girls who have looked better with lighter skin. It boost their confidence. After all, no one is a child, everyone is aware of the risk, so if a girl is happier with lighter skin, then let them be.

    Nice cover however she is in danger of overexposure. I hope she has a few more decent film roles in the works otherwise she will be toast.
