LUPITA NYONG’O: 10 Top Fashion Styles We Love And Why

Like the sun parting the skies after a rainy morning, this Mexican-born – Kenyan beauty is parting the crowds as she treads the red carpets and claims her way to fame. Lupita Amondi Nyong’o was born in Mexico City in March 1983 to politicians in asylum, mother Dorothy and father Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o. She spent some of her youth in Kenya, then moved back to Mexico to study Spanish and now speaks it fluently, as she does English, Swahili, and Luo. Lupita is a Yale School of Drama graduate and is now an actress, film music video director. We love her not only for the roles she has played in films such as the recent “12 years a slave” by Steve McQueen but for several others. For her role, Lupita won the Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and was also nominated for the Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. What we love even more is her flawless chocolate complexion, short and natural hairstyle and above all ….her fashion style! Below are 10 of the fashion favourite moments we enjoyed seeing her in and the reason why.

Grecian Red Dress

This dress was the perfect choice for her and could not have been any more graceful, elegant and sexy than it came across. Even though it is red in colour, the draping and floor length hem softened its colour and accentuated her skin and beautiful, lean frame. It has a simple style and it is amazing how she carried off the whole look with hardly any jewellery to compliment it and very natural makeup. This is definitely the favourite, well done Lupita!

Cool Blue Dress

What is so beautiful about this dress is yet again the simplicity of the style and how the colour really offsets her complexion. The floral beaded motif at the neck and straps meant that she did not have to wear a necklace and the way the dress hangs on her curves is tasteful and very refreshing as is the colour to the eyes. Lupita complemented it well with a chic clutch and minimalist jewellery with eyeshadow to match.

3. Monochrome Dress

Monochrome is a classic look that will never go out of style. It plays a perspective trick on the eye and when worn well, is most flattering for the figure. This asymmetric dress did that well for her and the bow on the front intertwined with the midriff made her waistline appear even smaller and hence created the perfect hourglass figure silhouette. It can be worn by day or night and with little or more accessories with colours such as deep red, blue, green and yellow.

4. Yellow dress

This sleeveless, fitted dress flared out slightly from the knees to create a fishtail effect seems to be a favourite look for her. The colour is once again bold, clean and pleasant to the eye and even dazzling but in the sense of her appearing almost as a “sun goddess” with her strength exuding from her toned biceps and beautiful neck. She has an amazing way of dressing in a “less is more” manner that makes other celebrities next to her look overdressed.

5. Green Dress

With this dress, one could not but marvel at how this young woman keeps it together with one look after another and gets it right every single time. The simple gold band accessories allowed attention to go to the strapless dress that tapered at the knees and created a lot of volume to the point where she almost appeared to be “floating” on the carpet. It was almost like seeing her in a bridal gown and even without a veil, this look is fabulous and very elegant.

6. White dress

White is pure and clean and is always a good choice for summer day or evening wear. The fabric draped freely and just delicately kissed her curves and almost appeared to be flowing like water. Her long sleeves kept her arms warm and the gold chain mail was the perfect feature to add a touch of chic and Grecian goddess gracefulness as with the red dress at number 1. This time, she went a bit further with bigger earrings but perfectly done and again the perfect clutch purse to match.

7 through to 10: The Girl Next Door Look

The bottom line is, no matter which outfit Lupita chose or chooses, she manages to look fantastic every time. These last 4 looks are more smart casual and it is so inspiring to see how she still manages to maintain a clean look that makes you think she picked out her own clothes from her wardrobe and her parents approve of each and every one of the outfits in there too. There is no doubt that this rising African gem makes Africa look good and promotes the concept of natural beauty for those that are skeptical or prefer otherwise. What consistency! What beauty! Shine on Lupita!

  1. She was born to do this. Let the sky be your limit, my beautiful and black African woman. Keep on staying true to yourself as you prove to other sisters that you can be very dark with black natural and kinky hair and still make it to the top. We are proud of you!

  2. Lupita looks fabulous. I am so happy for her. It is great to see African people in the public doing extremely well. And she looks fabulous. I would love for her to wear one of the outfits from Mayasi African a Fashion.
