Lupita Nyong’o makes it to the Vogue Cover!

We were just waiting for this moment, and now that it is here we’re more than glad to report it! Lupita just made her first Vogue cover and she’s ready for July this year! We must say she looks Perfect!


The actress is wearing a colorful Prada dress on the cover, perfect for summer time! But the spread… even more color filled! She poses in a bazaar and a spa in Marrakech. Lupita even dares danger and faces a cobra in one of the pictures!


We also love the one on the tub, with all the rose petals and the one in the couch were she’s dressed in warm colors. Nyong’o spoke about always having some love for fashion in an interview, saying that she even designed her own prom dress! This is what she had to say:

“It was a velvet miniskirt with a matching little top and an iridescent silver translucent fabric that flowed to the ground. It was kind of ridiculous, but it was fabulous at the time.”

Lupita expressed also how tiring this job can be saying:

“It’s a job; it’s work, you know! We’d just try, try, try, try, try, try, try. At first it was very daunting, but I ended up really having fun with it.”

And continues saying that choosing a dress for her sometimes is more of an instinct more than anything :

“For the bigger awards, the dress let me know it was going to be worn. It’s quite scary when you fall in love with a dress, because it’s nothing to do with your brain. It’s like a gut reaction. Nothing can prepare you for awards season. The red carpet feels like a war zone, except you cannot fly or fight; you just have to stand there and take it.”

Well dear Lupita you’ve got this warzone covered! Nothing to worry about!

Lupita Nyong’o is dating a musician after all, but it’s just not Jared Leto.

After weeks of the media romantically linking her to Leto, Michael Fassbender, and even Brad Pitt, the Oscar winner’s boyfriend is revealed.

According to US Weekly, Lupita has been dating rapper K’Naan since September last year and they’re getting along great.

Sources claim the 31 years-old actress and the ‘Wavin’ Flag‘ rapper, 36, are both “passionate about African issues” and that she “loves his humanitarianism”.

The couple has been together for six months, but are taking things slowly. The ‘12 Years a Slave‘ actress hasn’t met K’naan’s two kids yet.

The musician has two children with ex wife Deqa Warsame.

After hanging with Rihanna at the Miu Miu fashion show last week, Lupita Nyong’o teamed up with Jared Leto for another round of fashionable selfies at Paris Fashion Week.

This year’s Oscar winners for Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor posed for a series of fierce selfies that Lupita posted on her Instagram on Monday (March 10).

“#selfies @jaredleto. Done.” she captioned the photos.

She also wrote ‘Winners in Paris’ and ‘Paris in Winners’ across them, hinting at their big Oscar wins.

Leto and the beautiful actress have been previously linked in romantic rumors, but she denied the alleged romance. The 30 Seconds To Mars frontman also made a joke about the rumors, calling Lupita his “future ex wife” during one of his speeches.

Check out their selfies!

They would make one good looking couple.

Lupita Nyong’o Hangs With Rihanna at Paris Fashion Week

lupita and rihanna


After wining her first Oscar for her acclaimed role in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong’o appears to be celebrating her victory in a fashionable way.

The 31 years-old actress flew to the City of Lights to attend the Paris Fashion Week where she got to hang out and take fabulous selfies with Rihanna, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Léa Seydoux, Elizabeth Olsen and Margot Robbie at the Miu Miu fashion show.

Big names at the Paris Fashion Week!

“#MiuMiu selfie with the sensational Rihanna @badgalriri. #Paris”, Lupita captioned her selfie with RiRi.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I just came across Lupita’s Instagram. I had no idea she was using social media. But she is and she’s pretty active. She posted photos from the award ceremonies, including the Oscars, and she even has a cute photo of her headband gift from Ellen DeGeneres.

She’s also a fan of frogs. Her birthday cake was frog-shaped. I read somewhere that she thinks they bring luck. Since she wore a frog ring at the Oscars, looks like she knows her talismans.

After her win at the Oscars, Lupita posted a very sweet message on her Instagram: “I WON!!! It still has not registered that I am the proud recipient of the #AcademyAward for Best Actress in A Supporting Role. What a magnificent day. Thank you again to the Academy and to all who put their time and good energy into rooting for me.

Lupita Nyong’ o was expected to deliver great fashion on the Oscars red carpet and so she did.

The 31 years-old actress, who celebrated her birthday one day ahead of the Academy Awards, looked divine in a custom Prada dress with a deep V neckline and flowy skirt. The light blue color is beautiful and even though this was a simple dress compared to what other actresses were wearing, She stood out as one of the best dressed. Was she THE best dressed? It’s up to you to decide.

She, who won Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘12 Years a Slave‘, styled her beautiful gown with gold Fred Leighton jewelry, including a snake bracelet, a frog ring and statement earrings.

She wore a cute headband again.

Oscars 2014: ’12 Years a Slave’ Wins Best Picture

Chiwetel Ejiofor


12 Years a Slave‘ won Best Picture at the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday (March 2nd.). The powerful movie beat “American Hustle”, “Captain Phillips”, “Dallas Buyers Club”, “Gravity”, “Her”, “Nebraska”, “Philomena”, and “The Wolf of Wall Street” for the coveted gold statue. I think everyone is happy with the win.

Chiwetel Ejiofor lost Best Actor to Matthew McConaughey, but co-star Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress for her role as slave Patsy.

Director Steve McQueen also lost Best Director to Alfonso Quaron (‘Gravity‘ won a total of seven Oscars) but he seemed overjoyed with ’12 Years a Slave’ winning Best Picture this year.

The emotional movie also won Best Adapted Screenplay.

Brad Pitt, who was the producer of the movie, won his first Oscar on this occasion. He looked super proud during the acceptance speech.

McQueen offered the best part during the acceptance speech. He ended with “Everyone deserves not just to survive but to live. This is the most important legacy of Solomon Northup. I dedicate this award to all of the people who have endured slavery and the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today.”

Lupita Nyong’o & Naomie Harris: 2014 ESSENCE Luncheon Beauties

Lupita Nyong'o, 2014 Essence Luncheon


Here is a set of fashionable photos from the 2014 ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon held at Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (Feb. 27). The event had a great turn out. Many A-listers attended and they were all dressed up to the nines. It’s rare that we get such great fashion at one event. Except for the Oscars.

Let’s start with 2014 Oscars-favorite and current It girl, Lupita Nyong’o. The ‘12 Years a Slave‘ actress wore a Giambatistta Valli cream two-piece consisting of a cropped top and a pencil skirt. She pulled off this look flawlessly by styling it with cream Sophia Webster pumps and a white and gold Elie Saab clutch.  I love how her tiny waist and toned abs are accentuated here.

Hair and makeup were beautiful too. I love the delicate headband.

I’ve said it before. I’m sure the fashion battle between 2014 Oscars best dressed will be between Lupita and Naomie Harris. They’ve had a great awards season fashion-wise, both opting for memorable outfits. At this event, they color-coordinated.

I’m still dreaming of Naomie’s Valentino gown from the 2014 NAACP Image Awards, but I also like her on this occasion in Wes Gordon. She must be in a delicate and feminine dresses phase lately. No complaints.

Gold sandals and matching Jimmy Choo clutch accessorized the look.

Naomie Harris Essence Luncheon

Flawless hair and makeup. Naomie is so gorgeous.

Lupita and Naomie’s look were beautiful but it’s time for some color. I’m happy to see that Kerry Washingon‘s maternity style has improved. A lot. Kerry wore a beautiful blue dress by Calvin Klein styled with black pumps by Jimmy Choo and a fabulous clutch.

Kerry Washington Essence Luncheon

Beautiful curls and smokey eyes completed the look.

Brandy Norwood stood out in a fiery red suit. I love it. It’s unexpected, it’s edgy, but still classy. She styled her Elena Reva suit with matching pumps and a snakeskin clutch.

Brandy, who turned 35 recently, also debuted a new hairstyle.
