Lupita Nyong’o rocks Gele-Inspired Outfit at the US Open



Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o attended Day 2 of the US Open on Wednesday, August 30th. The actress attended the match with a friend William DeMerrit.

For the US Open Lupita kept things simple and chic with her outfit but we absolutely love her spin on popular Nigerian gele headgear.

    She knows how to look scary in the name of fashion.
    But white people are tricky o. The hype was mostly from them at that point and then because we like to follow we starte Lupitaing.

    I don’t see the mighty fashion they tried to force down our throats.

      Just because you don’t find her gorgeous doesn’t mean others didn’t. I’ve loved her from Shula days especially with that low cut of hers.

    Bella Naija,

    This guy with her is NOT Mobolaji Dawodu. You guys please get your fact correct before they start to sue. Even Daily Mail (which I guess is where you got the news from) got it wrong.
