BellaNaija Style



We all know Lupita Nyong’o to be one stylish celebrity, however, the actress can now add “designer” to her already impressive resume.

The Black Panther star who attended the World Premiere of the movie in Los Angeles in a breathtaking purple dress and a stunning updo, alongside her mother, has revealed that she also designed the dress her mummy wore.

She shared a photo of herself and her mother to show off her work:

My mummy looked so pretty at the @blackpanther premiere! @kutulaand I designed her dress. #humblebrag#BlackPanther

The gorgeous dress was composed of an Ankara long-sleeve collared top with a periwinkle pink and blue skirt with floral design.

    Nothing unsual!! In Africa we are all designers and stylists.. We all draw our outfits.. gowns, garas.. and give it to the tailors to sew it… I do it all the time , especially when I m in Accra or Dakar..

    I will talk…… The most disgusting dress ever seen on the red carpet. This girl should go and sit somewhere and concentrate on her acting which by the way is totally overhyped. The only reason why she’s so sucessful is because white Hollywood is enthralled at seeing a black African girl who’s gone to Yale. Imagine her being descibed as beautiful????? Where in the world will anybody with African blood in them ever describe Lupita as beautiful? Abeg, let her go and sit somewhere.

    She has the stereotypical looks whities want african women to have. The best thing about her is that she’s well educated the acting part is a tad overhyped
