Style Icon: Lupita Nyong’o

This Kenyan born actress from the critically acclaimed 12 Years a Slave has literally been on everyone’s style watch since her appearance at the Golden Globes in the statement Ralph Lauren red cape dress.

Her style can best be summarised as edgy, fun and youthful with favorite designers including the print-tastic Peter Pilotto and minimalistic Calvin Klein. Just to prove that she can also do classic and beautiful she threw on the beautiful pink Chanel number (matching 90’s style) and followed it with the gorgeous Lanvin draped perfection.

As a side note I really like the contrast of her edgy hair to her feminine style as she usually wears a-line skirts or beautiful necklines. I also appreciate her beauty effort- those bright lips are my favourite!

I can’t wait to see what she will wear to the Academy Awards this Sunday.
