We Are Loving Lupita Nyong’o’s Fuller ‘Fro!



Grill At The Pent Abuja - Bellanaija - Lupita Nyong'o002Lupita Nyong’o is recording some serious hair growth.

The actress who is set to star in the upcoming movies, The Jungle Book and Star Wars – The Force Awakens, attended the press events on Saturday 15th August 2015 in a stunning green, black & white striped Lanvin dress from the fashion label’s Resort 2016 collection.

Her first appearance since she returned from Kenya on a mission to save the Elephants, she also gave us some serious natural hair inspiration, showing off a fuller ‘fro. Her hair is full of tiny spiral coils that have casually fallen unto her face with a messy side part.

Don’t get us wrong, we loved her Teeny Weeny Afro (TWA), but this recent growth spurt is making us fall hard. She complemented her new hair with subtle makeup complete with a light red lip.

See her fab new look below;

    All i want to say is that she is beautiful! I guess black is too expensive to maintain no wonder we have pawpaw themed skin flyin g around. Shoutout to those african music videos producers who prefer pawpaw theme skinned gals to real black women. How will the world take us serious when we are fighting one thing and projecting another.

    To save the elephant????? Elephants are now more importants than human, right?

    Nice, her low cut fits her better which not everyone can pull off.
