Lupita Nyong’o is a High Fashion Star for Vogue’s October ’15 Issue!



Lupita Nyongo for Vogue October 2015 - BellaNaija - September 2015009Lupita Nyong’o has landed another Vogue cover and it’s a fabulous one!

Sampling some of fashion’ s favourite Fall 2016 collection pieces, the actress, who got her first taste of super stardom for her role in Steve McQueen‘s 12 Years A Slave alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, covers the magazine’s October 2015 issue.

In the issue she talks about her 4 upcoming film projects, including the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie and The Jungle Book, family, high fashion and more.

In the interview with Vogue, Lupita dished on her first encounter with fashion at the age of 5. She said – “Presentation is extremely important in Kenya. You dress formally. You can’t just wear flip-flops. My mother always had her own style. She wore A-line, tea-length flowery dresses, very well fitting. Her nails were always perfectly done.

Salons were a big feature in my life. We would go every two weeks to get our hair braided, washed, or treated. That’s where I read American, British, and a few African magazines. Then I would design my own clothes. In Kenya it’s much cheaper to get clothes made than to buy them. We would have everything run up by a tailor, or my aunt Kitty, who is very creative, would sew things for me.”

She also talked about acting in Kenya, what intrigues her about fashion and more. Read the rest of her interview on

Her love for fashion clearly shows in this fabulous fashion editorial. She wears pieces from Givenchy, Gaultier Paris, Atelier Versace, Dior and more, as she strikes ethereal poses at vintage-set locations. We are completely loving it.

      Reading is fundamental: the article and cover clearly talk about two movies she is slated to be in this year

      Same thing I said. Good going Ms Lupita! Two Vogue Covers in Less than two years. And yes she is an actress but clearly she is also famous for being a Fashion heavy weight….SJP ,Alyssa Milano and Jessica Alba are all actresses with few movie discographies but they are equally famous for being Fashion heavy weights, Hollywood big names and as d case of SJP, a Fashion Icon.

    Guys, the truth is this girl is blessed beyond measure. I mean look at the images… they are stellar and a fashion lover’s dream! I triple love them all!!! But seriously while its easy to hang on the negatives that everyone is saying about her success, i.e.., “she’s not the only black girl that’s ever acted in movies, her role was not the most stellar,” or calling her out for modeling too much instead of being in more movies, blah, blah…. I would encourage you to take a step back, refrain from developing small hate but instead tap into her anointing and ask God to bless you with the same supernatural favor like he did her.

    Its really not her fault that America (and World of fashion) opened up to her with opportunities beyond opportunities after only one film but more so timing. Yes, it could have been another black girl but it just happened to be her. I mean look again she defys everything that would have been on Vogue in the past or that America would even celebrate but mehnnnnn when God moves… he MOVES!! Truth is she embodies a lot of good qualities they like so for them she makes their job easier (I know its not fair but life isn’t anyway). Anyway, my point here is I will never get tired of celebrating and appreciating each opportunity she is blessed with because I know God moves mightily and can do the same for you and me. Bless

    If it were one of our naija actresses they would have started “toning” from there slowly turn to full blown bleaching. Child, love thyself!

    I remember seeing her in Shuga and just marveling at her true black sheen. Even then you could tell she was destined for greatness.
