32-year-old Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o has made her first appearance at NYFW by attending the Boss women’s wear show held at New York Fashion Week.

The actress looked lovely in an ensemble by the fashion brand’s designer Jason Wu – a pleated white and silver dress – which she admitted is her first ever Jason Wu outfit.

Seated on the Front Row, Lupita was ethereal with her hair in curls accessorized with a black and red bow.

We’ve certainly been looking out to see if the 12 Years a Slave actress would make an appearance at this season’s New York Fashion Week especially because she has been so busy rehearing for her off-Broadway show “Eclipsed” at the Public Theater.

Do you like her look for the Jason Wu Boss women’s show?

    No. I never do.

    I wonder what all the fuss is about her, her black skin? Biko there are loads of black women in Africa, so many we won’t be able to put all of them on the cover of vogue. Also, it’s just as bad as celebrating Kim because of her derrière. Lupitas acting is not spectacular either. In other news I like her shoes ?

      Stop hating!! Her acting is better than all your so called nollywood legends (omotola and co). Why is it so difficult for you to celebrate another African woman?

    Well Mamacita, if you don’t have anything to say just save your data and move on to the next page. Lupita is a spectacular actress and a budding fashionista too. She is a fashion role model for young black girls who are NATURALISTAS. She keeps it simple, natural and classy. She even worn best dress in FASHION POLICE dt year. I wonder where the hate is coming frm, is it jealousy or just your evil nature, I dunno. MTCHEWWWW. To think that you can compare an oscar winning lupita to a social media STRIPPER like Kim just made me to know that you just bought DSTV decoder yesterday therefore you know nothing about entertainment news.

      “if you don’t have anything to say, save your data and move to the next page”….then proceed to call another person a social media stripper….but you are no different from the person you are pointing accusing fingers at na….

      @ Slay: Heyleyley! you have awoken a sleeping lion, I offered my opinion and moved on and you decide my opinion is not good enough (?) and that I should keep it to myself. Who died and made you queen of the internet? Monitoring spirit that just learnt the word naturalista and fashion police. Which year did she win ehhh? Tell me. I know exactly when she “won” (not worn as your spelling is as atrocious as the way you think) BTW.

      DSTV? Kwa! People be watching TV in “foreign lands” this nansense be watching DSTV and yes my nature is evil so don’t cross me son.

    mentioned this before: she looks great and the clothes usually can’t reach her level; she usually outshines the clothes e.g. here.
    in the vogue photos i just saw they managed to dress her so royally bright that she didn’t leave the clothes behind.

    alright bye.

      Absolutely right Tosin, she never gets lost in the clothes.
