Lupita Nyong’o, industry darling, talented actress, and fashionista, has just landed her first Vogue cover. I knew this was inevitable, however I didn’t expect it this soon, as little over a year ago, Nyong’o was a drama student at Yale.
Monumental things has happened between then and now. She is the first woman of color to be a brand ambassador of Lancôme, she was one of the faces for Mui Miu’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, she has been prominently featured on every best-dressed list there is and lets not forget her oscar win for best supporting actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave. It goes with out saying, this is her breakout year!
The July issue of Vogue hits newsstands nationwide on June 30th. Head over to vogue.com for the cover story.
