Lupita Nyong’o In Honayda at the ‘Us’ SXSW Premiere
Lupita Nyong’o is no slouch in the beauty department and she’s definitely a style star we look forward to seeing on the red carpet. Known to experiment boldly with daring fashion and beauty statements on and off the red carpet – we were definitely excited and curious as to what form her promo tour looks would take for her new starring role in Jordan Peele’s latest movie – the horror themed ‘Us’.
Another thing we love about the Kenyan Academy Award winner and Yale graduate? She really knows how to commit to a theme. Her Queen of Katwe and Black Panther red carpet promo tours are a great example of this. Her glam squad tells a story from start to finish and really brings this theme to life. For the ‘Us’ promotional tour, Lupita Nyong’o and her long time team of stylist Micaela Erlanger, makeup artist Nick Barose and hairstylist Vernon François executed a subtle yet riveting theme.
In the film- she plays two parts – the bright and beautiful Adelaide, matriarch of the Wilson family, and Red, her terrifying doppelgänger and this duality was reflected in Lupita’s fashion and beauty choices for the tour. Bold, bright and Stepford-esque for daytime, dark, scary and more than a little threatening for nighttime. Switching things up really shows off the two different characters she portrays in the movie. Lupita and her team’s ability to distil and interpret this message is as impressive as ever.
Check out some of the unbelievably innovative and truly badass beauty looks we’ve ever seen on her (or anyone to be fair) to date.
